When buying from a sustainable forest you can choose between different kinds of timber. Globally we can distinguish about 50,000 varieties of timber, while only making use of a few. Up to 93% of tropical forest timber volume consists of Lesser Known Timber Species (LKTS) and many such species are currently being burnt or otherwise wasted after logging operations or forest clearing. Looking at the LKTS several of them are high- quality and can be deployed in many ways. Using these kinds of timber, we make better use of the forest without exhausted nature.
Each of these species has its own properties, characteristics and applications. The durability class for these species is ranging from I – V and the strength class varies from A – D. The variety of density is between 400 – 1200 kg/m3. All species come with FSC-certification.
Uses depends on the particular specie and is not limited to, but exist of: joists, door and window frames and sills (internal use), moldings, partitioning, joinery, furniture, plywood, flooring, decking, staircase (angle blocks, rough bracket, baluster, balustrade, carriage, newel, riser, spandrel framing, stringer, tread, bullnose, round end and winder), columns (light duty), railway sleepers, vehicle bodies (framework, floor boards and planking), ship and boat building (keels, keelsons, framework and general planking), cooling tower (structural members) and tool handles (non-impact). The heavier species are also suitable for heavy construction under cover.
