A new generation of EGGER’s PerfectSense® TM9 is now available from Hill’s Panel Products (HPP), the Oldham-based board, doors and furniture fittings manufacturer and supplier.

With matt surfaces remaining firmly on trend, HPP partner producer, EGGER, has combined state-of-the-art UV lacquering technology with a carbon-negative chipboard core.

The PerfectSense® Collection is already well-known in the industry for its high-end matt, super matt and gloss finishes. Previously available with a MDF core, or as laminate, EGGER has made the changes in response to demand for more environmentally focused products.

Designed particularly with vertical applications in mind, the lacquered boards boast a warm and velvety touch and feature easy-to-clean, anti-fingerprint and antibacterial properties.

“Most matt surfaces in the market come with a high price tag,” says Alex West, EGGER UK’s product manager. “Thanks to the chipboard core of TM9, we have been able to keep the cost down and offer a more affordable solution.

“The chipboard core of TM9 is just one of the reasons the product is so affordable. 34% of a panel is made from recycled wood, with a further 37% made from sawmill by-products. A key feature is that TM9 can be recycled along with other household wood waste at local waste recycling centres after use. Therefore, the carbon that is absorbed by the tree during its growth is stored in the wood-based panel for generations to come.”

The range consists of 10 popular décors, including new on-trend greens and elegant greys alongside black, white and blue options – all resistant to abrasion, impact and scratches – and available with matching edging.

HPP is an EGGER Diamond Distributor and the only distributor to offer its trade customers the unique service of processing full panel sheets from the entire EGGER Decorative Collection into made-to-measure doors or cut-to-specification orders.

All the TM9 décors are also available as doors using the EGGER Optima service via HPP’s dedicated EGGER Optima range page on its website – www.hpponline.co.uk/egger-optima

It features a specifically created custom door builder for the EGGER Optima frontages to make quoting instant and ordering simple.

HPP account holders can choose any of the EGGER Optima décors and a matching or accented edging tape, input the component sizes and the optimiser will create an instant price. It even creates a visual representation of the full sheet of the chosen design to help subscribers get the most for their money.

The jobs are optimised and priced in real-time, day and night, and multiple quotes can be saved and modified before ordering.

EGGER, which has been supplying HPP throughout its 32-year history, has a dedicated area on its website showing how it sustainably sources the materials used to make its wood-based products – an ethos created by its founder, Fritz Egger Senior, famous in the timber-based product industry for his comment: “Wood is far too valuable to just throw away.”
