WHY WE SHOULD USE PLYWOOD INSTEAD OF SOLID TIMBER ?
WHY WE SHOULD USE PLYWOOD INSTEAD OF SOLID TIMBER ?

      Increased stability Plywood offers all the inherent advantages of the parent wood plus enhanced properties in its laminated structure.   High impact resistance Being a wood based material, plywood has the ability to accommodate the occasional short-term overload; up to twice the design load. This is useful where seismic activity or cyclonic winds can occur. This property is also effective when used as construction flooring or as concrete formwork. Plywood’s laminated structure distributes loads from impact over a larger area on the opposite face, which effectively reduces the tensile stress.   Surface dimensional stability The cross laminated […]

WHAT IS PLYWOOD?

        Plywood boards or “sheets” are made up of three or more thin layers of real wood that are glued together. The layers are known as “plies”, hence the name “plywood”. Generally, the thicker the plywood, the more layers it has. It is a versatile material with a huge range of applications, from wall and floor covering to moulds for concrete structures, designer furniture to packaging. Plywood is considerably stronger than some other wood-based sheet products, such as medium density fibreboard (MDF). Plywood’s strength is due to the way the direction of each layer’s grain is alternated […]
