ColorWall is a Unique Performer
ColorWall is a prefinished wood wallcovering, custom manufactured using a flexible fabric backing. ColorWall offers a beautiful wood paneled look without the cost of architectural paneling.

ColorWall is Real Hardwood with UV Protection
ColorWall is made with dyed natural or reconstructed wood veneers sealed beneath a tough, protective coating system, specially developed for dyed wood veneers. This catalyzed polyurethane system provides superior protection from harmful ultraviolet (UV) ray damage. (See Note at bottom of page.)

No Staining Required, No Finishing Required
Because Veneer Specialists veneers are dyed, the color is predetermined and consistent, so the need for labor intensive staining and color matching has been eliminated. One or a dozen manufacturers can fabricate different portions of a project while maintaining color consistency throughout the project. In addition, Veneer Specialists veneers are colored throughout their entire thickness – so they can be sanded or touched up in the field. Stained woods do not offer this flexibility.

ColorWall is Unlimited Design Flexibility
ColorWall is available in hundreds of colors, patterns and species of dyed wood veneers. ColorWall is a flexible material and can be installed over drywall surfaces – straight or curved, allowing designers and architects to specify wood surfaces where architectural wood paneling is not possible. The design possibilities are limitless. Standard sheet sizes are 24″ x 96″, 24″ x 108″ and 24″ x 120″. (Minimum quantities and upcharges may apply to custom orders.) Contact your Veneer Specialists representative for standard detail suggestions.

ColorWall is Eco-Conscious
The Veneer Specialists line of dyed wood veneers retains the beautiful characteristics of the original species while eliminating the color variations experienced with natural veneers, thereby reducing waste factors incurred in production. Further, Veneer Specialists’ line of reconstructed veneers replicates desirable woods that have become unavailable or cost prohibitive. These reconstructed veneers are made from abundant woods previously considered undesirable.


NOTE: ColorWall is made with real hardwood veneers. Natural products will fade if exposed to direct or bright light. An ultraviolet shield, shade, or drapery treatment is suggested to limit such fading. Wood veneers will alter their color over time, whether due to ultraviolet fading or simple aging of the wood.
