Denim by TorZo Surfaces

Denim Texture 2

Recycled denim scraps have previously found new life as insulation, but the fabric has now been transformed into a durable architectural finish. To turn your Levis into panels, TorZo Surfaces takes a base construction of 80% post-industrial recycled denim fabric scraps and infuses it with a nontoxic acrylic resin. Penetrating completely through the raw Denim board, the infusion creates a panel that offers outstanding resistance to abrasion and scratching.

Designed for both vertical and horizontal interior applications, the 2’ x 4’ x 1⁄2” thick panel is ideal for wall paneling, tabletops, furniture, store fixtures, and other horizontal surfaces in commercial, retail, residential, and hospitality spaces. Denim is offered in its natural blue jean indigo hue in two surface treatments: one is finished without filling surface voids, providing a more rustic, textured appearance, and the other is filled and sanded, which eliminates the majority of the surface voids and makes it ideal for horizontal applications.The recycled denim fabric scraps are sourced from Indochina (Thailand & Vietnam) while the manufacturing process is done stateside in Woodburn, Oregon.

Standard lamination to an FSC-certified Baltic Birch backer provides additional integrity and dimensional strength to the panel. As with all TorZo products, Denim is certified to have no added formaldehyde and can contribute to LEED points in several categories. Plus, when you need to fit it to size there is no need to visit a tailor — TorZo’s infusion process allows Denim to be cut, fabricated, and machined with standard tooling.
