CNC routed component
This featured product is a CNC routed component which will become a wooden top on a nesting table. It consists of a moisture resistant MDF with laminate on 1 side. This product gets a stain applied to the rounded edges and the bottom side has a light brown paper backer. When this component leaves WWC it is attached to a powder coated metal frame and its end use is a floral display.
Moisture resistant MDF has special properties which make it suitable for interior applications where there is the risk of occasional wetting or prolonged exposure to high levels of humidity. It can be used for sink bases, dishwasher enclosures, institutional hospital casework and counters, display fixtures, store fixtures and various other applications such as laboratories, locker rooms, laundry areas and cafeterias of schools. Its low thickness swell properties and smooth surface make it an ideal substrate for thin paper and foil, especially when used with water based adhesives.
Our company name, Wurm's Woodworking
Our company name, Wurm's Woodworking, does not hint at all we do! WWC has worked with plastic materials since the 1980s. This product, shown in its end use, is a plastic diffuser thermoformed from a custom white, fire-rated rigid acrylic/PVC material.
Diffusers can be found on the rear and side walls in band and choral rehearsal rooms, music performance spaces, lecture spaces and auditoriums. Diffusers are also found in lay-in 15/16" standard grid ceilings like pictured above. Sometimes you may see these painted or covered in fabric. Shaped surfaces break up direct sound reflections and disburse them more evenly throughout a listening space. Random disbursement of sound reflections greatly improves sound quality and consistency for the listener.
Fire-rated acrylic/PVC material is also used in other industrial end use applications such as trays, tote boxes, ducts, flumes, tanks and sinks and in electronics such as processing terminals, hand-held monitors, GPS housings and enclosure components.
