Cross Grained Panels


To provide longer, joint free surfaces of vertical wood grains.


Counter fronts, cash wraps, kitchen islands and wainscoting are just a few of the places where UpFront cross grained panels are specified. They are appropriate anywhere a vertical grained span of more than 48" is indicated.


Available cores include lauan (for thin panels), Particleboard, MDF, ArmorCore® and Veneer Core. The availability of certain species and grades of cross grained face veneers must be determined at the time of the order. NOVA Clear finishes are also available.


The environmental characteristics of UpFront panels are dependent on the core selected. FSC Certified, No-Added-Urea-Formaldehyde and recycled content panels may be specified. If NOVA finishes are included, they are 100% solid, modified epoxy acrylate that is cured by ultraviolet light. They do not release any volatile organic compounds or hazardous air pollutants in manufacturing or in use. These coatings are roll applied in a flat line system that recycles excess finish, eliminating waste and curing instantaneously. NOVA finishes comply with South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Rule 1113, and contributes to LEED IEQ 4.2: Low Emitting Materials-Paints and Coatings. Like all States Industries' panels, UpFront products exceed CARB 93120.12.
