Thin layers of veneer for PAGHOLZ® are painstakingly prepared: they are inspected for quality, then dyed and soaked in resin. Only then do we press them into the desired shape with the application of heat and up to 2,000 metric tons of pressure.

Eigenschaften von Pagholz
Chemical and mechanical resistance

PAGHOLZ® provides the natural appearance of solid wood. Rest assured, we only use native Red Beech Trees, sustainably harvested from stock that are carefully replanted.

Of course, all PAGHOLZ® products are incredibly durable and recyclable.

The special characteristics of PAGHOLZ®:

  1.     impact- and break-resistant
  2.     light-fast
  3.     flame-retardant and self-extinguishing
  4.     high level of scratch- and wear-resistance
  5.     chemically stable
  6.     stain and wear-resistant
  7.     keeps its shape beautifully

What does that mean for you? It's an easy-to-clean, non-flammable, self-extinguishing material, that can even be weather-proofed with special resins.



Flush-lasered edging

Schaubild: fugenlose Laserkante

Furniture for educational institutions must be strong and robust.

Thanks to innovative laser technology, our surfaces and edges are durably bonded, without any visible seams.

We developed a new finishing method for surface edging for our square panel edging, rounded table, and desktop edging - the flush-lasered edge. In this method, edges are welded directly onto the tabletop using laser technology, leaving our edges flush, and extremely durable.

    1. flush-lasered edging
    2. conventional glued edging

The benefit for you: no more visible glued joints from which the edges could peel. And thanks to the flush edging, this furniture is also especially durable and resistant to moisture, especially water vapor. It is a welcome sight in any art classroom.

Formen unserer Laserkanten

All benefits at a glance:

  •     prevents capillary action
  •     greater heat-resistance (248 °F)
  •     low levels of swelling and shrinking
  •     no gaps = less dirt/fewer bacteria
  •     high adhesion with mechanical fixing    
  •     seamless joints look better
  •     highly light resistant
  •     environmentally-friendly production

Our lasered edges are finished in the same color as the tabletop as standard

Solid wood edging


Whether they’re flush or profiled edge bands – our solid beech edges are sure to impress.

A2S Solid wood edging is firmly glued to the particle board, looks high-quality, and protects the highly exposed tabletop edges. For those with the highest standards, we offer our profiled edges – in this case, the particle board is additionally coated on both sides with a 0.03" thick HPL strip. This wear-, scratch-, and impact-resistant HPL coating is flame-retardant and food-
safe, and also environmentally-friendly thanks to the sustainable origin of the raw materials.

By the way: the profiled edges can be milled in custom designs.

    2. Crowned profile
    3. Softline profile

ASSODUR® edging


A development we are particularly proud of: the first-ever molded table edging.

With the ASSODUR® edging the elastic polyurethane edging is cast in liquid form onto the table edge, using a metal mold. This strong bond with the tabletop itself gives it a particularly durable connection to the particle board.

All four colors of the ASSODUR® edging are free from PVC and especially resistant to wear and impact.

Tabletops go through a lot of abuse, every day. That’s why A2S packs ours with outstanding features.

Special resins ensure the break-resistant quality of our MDF laminates. We compress the upper and lower layer of heard-wearing, melamine resin-coated finish layer onto the board, applying high pressures and heat in a metal mold.

This makes the Woodmark® surfaces highly wear-, scratch-, and impact-resistant. Thanks to the A2S surface texture they are unique, anti-glare, and easy to clean. Rounded edges reduce the risk of injury.

Discover Woodplac® – with a sturdy core of solid beech multiplex, and elegant genuine wood sliced veneers.

Our Woodplac®  tabletops are made from solid beech multiplex, and come covered with finishing layers, or with optional genuine wood-sliced veneers, for an elegant look.

Our surface is always covered with multiple layers of melamine resin, to help prevent wear, scratches, while adding impact-resistance. The anti-static, splinter-free, and anti-glare tabletops, with gently rounded edges, are less susceptible to potential damage and reduce the risk of injury.

Tabletop finishes


Great: creative students. Even better: a tabletop that keeps up with them.

When students let off some steam, the tables at which they sit need to be especially resistant to wear, scratches, and impact.

For exactly this reason, we cover all our tabletops made from particle board with a standard A2S finish with several layers of a robust melamine resin. Our school furniture is able to withstand the rough and tumble of everyday school life, and is also easy to clean and largely anti-glare.

Students are active all day. Good thing there is our 3-component floorsafe® floor protector.

Floorsafe® reduces damage to floors, as well as the risk of tipping when tilted. They also significantly reduced noise, which is not only easier on the nerves, but easier on your classroom floors.

The top-down screws prevent scratches to the floor. And when a protector really needs replacing, it is quick and easy to do so.
