Wire brushed wood paneling is a visually appealing alternative to traditional wall and ceiling coverings and is often used by architects and designers as an accent and feature walls or ceilings. It is popular in homes, restaurants, cafés, and offices, as the aesthetic appeal and protection offered to walls and ceilings by wood panels are superior to that of sheetrock, plaster, or other surfaces. Foodservice establishments often incorporate wire brushwood panels into high-traffic hallways, entryways, or other areas.
Wire-brushed lumber preserves the original surface of the boards while cleaning off loose debris and dirt. The resulting rustic surface exposes original saw marks and character imperfections. This type of planing is different from bright-planed and skip-planed reclaimed wood paneling, which each offer a different reclaimed wood surface type.
