About Decorative Panels Group

The origins of the Decorative Panels Group date back to 1907 when the family owned business were local cabinetmakers. Today, Decorative Panels is now Europe’s leader in the supply of decorative faced sheet materials, panel components and flat pack furniture.

Still privately owned, the group combines three divisions, Decorative Panels Lamination, Decorative Panels Components and Decorative Panels Furniture. These vertically integrated companies supply the most prominent names in the furniture and allied industries sector ranging from manufacturers right through to retailers.

Working as a partner company with BioCote® the company is about to launch the UK’s first range of commercially available sheet materials that offer exceptional abrasion and antibacterial properties. The surface itself offers a combination of distinctive properties.

Due to the nature of the décor manufacture, alongside the addition of the BioCote® additive, the surface is highly resistant to abrasion, in fact it far exceeds the abrasion resistance of a standard high pressure worktop. In addition the surface has a high resistance to common liquids that are known to leave distinctive marks, as well as meeting all the testing parameters appropriate to dry heat and wet heat.

Tests against resistance to clinical cleaning products see excellent results in all areas. One of the most significant properties of this innovative sheet material is the inclusion of the antibacterial additive from BioCote® that gives up to a 99.9% germ free surface*.

What our partners say

  • Initially our customers were sceptical on how the technology worked and if it was proven but with the documentation provided this has helped give the customer confidence that it works in a true real-life environment based on testing as well as laboratory conditions. Using the well-recognised brand along with excellent technical and sales support enabled us to reach into other markets not otherwise available, such as healthcare.

  • BioCote has become a fundamental feature of our product, particularly overseas where the inclusion of the technology has seen us win business against local competition in China, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Pakistan, India, Chile, South Africa and the Middle East. When we are competing for a project, BioCote technology has positively influenced decision makers to choose our product.

  • We chose BioCote because we wanted the security of working with a company that would do more than simply sell us an additive or give us an unrecognisable trademark to co-brand our product. BioCote made our entrance into the antimicrobial market easy. They seamlessly integrated themselves into our business and have done so ever since, ensuring we have always operated with maximum confidence.
