Laminate cabinets is a general term for several types of cabinets made from laminate materials. Durable, easy to clean and stylish, laminate cabinets are a great option for apartments, residential kitchens and multi-family projects.
Metropolitan offers a wide selection of laminate colors and patterns to choose from, fabricated locally right at our Norwood, MA facility. Below are the different laminate door options we offer.
(HPL) High Pressure Laminate Cabinets
High Pressure Laminate Cabinets, also referred to as HPL, are created by applying laminate material to a composite core with high levels of pressure to seal and secure the bond between the core and the laminate material. Laminate doors and drawer fronts have a band around the edge to conceal and protect the composite core. Typically the core is made of MDF or Particleboard. Laminate is available in a wide variety of colors, sheens, textures, and designs; including solids, wood grains, abstract designs, and textures.
HPL cabinets are easy to clean and when cared for properly, are long lasting.
(TFL) Thermally Fused Laminate / Melamine Cabinets
Thermally Fused Laminate (TFL), also known as melamine, panels are produced by fusing a resin-based sheet of decorative paper directly to a particleboard core. A pressure and heating process activates the resin-based sheet and seals the core, creating an extremely strong material. TFL is available in a variety of finishes and textures, and is a great material for any residential space or multi-family project.
