LAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec – Tafisa has announced that it will be the first manufacturer in North America to produce synchronized textured embossed in-register (EIR) decorative panels that replicate the look and feel of hickory and teak.

Named Brava and Feria, the teak and hickory textures were developed using Tafsa’s proprietary EIR technology, a synchronized embossing technology that produces double-sided decorative panels with the look and feel of real wood. The 4 x 8 and 5 x 9 foot panels will come in six exclusive colors, adding to the variety of options in Tafsa’s high end Sommet Series.

“Once we’d developed a panel with a synchronized texture, it became clear that our clients wanted more quality options for textured TFL. That’s why we’ve made the move to expand our Sommet Series of panels,” said Eric Dedekam, V-P sales and marketing at Tafisa. See
