High quality materials
High quality materials are used throughout construction of all 5 Star cases and products. The majority of cases are constructed using birch plywood from renewable sources. Exterior covering is by means of a wide variety of materials including coloured high pressure laminates (HPL), aluminium stucco panels and extruded vinyl sheets, all of which are bonded in-house using water based adhesives and a heated press system.

Glued and pinned is the preferred method of carcass construction, although alternatives are also employed including special aluminium extrusions that ‘lock’ the carcass together. High grade aluminium profiles are groove riveted to all external faces, along with hybrid valences fitted between mating sections, giving a dust proof seal.
