Description

All birch veneer, structural grade plywood to which the section properties, grade stresses and moduli listed in BS 5268-2 apply; see also 'Handbook of Finnish plywood' (visit manufacturer's website for details).

Plies are bonded using a phenolic resin, cross-bonded, weather resistant glue to EN 314-2, Class 3 'Exterior'.

Shapes, profiles and drillings can be machined to specifier's drawings.

As wood is a living material, every panel is unique. Thus a photograph or a sample piece cannot represent all variations in colour, shade, graining, knots, etc.
