True to the company name, California-based Kirei USA recently announced a beautiful, new material for 2012 called Windfall. Windfall is an engineered wood panel made with a low-VOC adhesive and lumber from deconstructed buildings in the Pacific Northwest. It’s suitable for wall paneling, casework, signage, and other similar applications.
Windfall is available in several colors — unfinished, clear, anthracite, mocha, ivory, and leather. Panels are 3/4″ thick and come in 27″ x 96″ (solid) or 48″ x 96″ (three-ply).
The panels carry 100% FSC Mixed credit certification, according to Kirei, and may contribute toward LEED credits in several categories, such as for recycled content, certified wood, low-emitting materials, and regional materials (500 miles of Tumwater, Washington).
