Wood drying

The wood for our products is dried in two 100 m3 capacity drying chambers. Structural timber is dried to a +/- 15 % moisture content, which is required for timber-frame construction. Wood drying may be described as the process of ensuring that dimensional changes through shrinkage are confined to the drying process. Ideally, wood is dried to the level that will ensure further dimensional change will be kept to a minimum. Dried timber is stronger than green timber in most strength properties. Dried timber is lighter, and the transportation and handling costs are reduced.
