Everything you need to know about Wooden Products:

Wooden products are playing a critical role from the beginning of humankind helping to improve the quality of life. They are used for the construction of shelter, firing, cooking primarily and nowadays as furniture, decorative laminates, doors, ceiling and so on. If we take good care of wood like keeping them away from fungus, bacteria then they last forever. Wood is relatively a good heat insulator, durable and environmentally friendly only if we plant a tree, for every old tree we cut down. For construction purposes, we have a variety of composite wood products like Plywood, Laminated sheets, Blockboard, Hardboard, Fibreboard, and other products.

Types of wooden products:

Wood is of two types based on the kinds of trees used to make those.

Hardwood: It is made using deciduous trees like oak, teak, walnut, balsa, etc.

Softwood: It is made using coniferous trees like pine, spruce, redwood, etc.

As the name itself says that hardwood is harder compared to softwood but not in all cases. Hardwoods have a lovely appearance and used in making furniture, decorative woodworks, musical equipments, and Softwoods are tall and use for sheds, shelving, subflooring, planks, poles, etc.

Plywood:

It is made up of thin layers of wood called veneers of different thickness and glued together to get the desired product. Here, the name 'ply' refers to plywood and the most common type is 3-ply(number indicates layers used) which is strong, durable, and more decorative than plywood with more plies, recommended for interior uses. As the number of layer increases, its strength and durability increases and use for exterior purposes like roofing, where they can withstand heavy wind and damages.

Blockboard:

A similar process of Plywood construction is used for making blockboard usually with three layers. The outer layers are thin and the inner layers are thick wood square cuts, which are glued together to form a thick piece of wood and use for decorative laminations.

Fibreboard:

A dense composite wood fibres are glued together to form this fibreboard. Generally, Medium-density fibrewood known as MDF is commonly used, which is less expensive, stronger and a good alternative to plywood. We need to handle carefully the finished product to avoid cracks and splits.

Laminates:

Multiple layers of composite material are applied to make them strong and durable. They are an improved version of hardwood which looks very stylish and use for flooring, countertops, tabletops and other decorative spaces.
