Furniture board is a plate of wood. It is made by gluing wooden bars. For the assembly of a natural sheet material lamellas with a width of 10-70 mm are used. This technology has a great advantage. It is possible to solve one of the complex problems of natural wood — curvature. By gluing the lamellae together, the internal tension is reduced and the material is not subject to deformation. The result is large-format full-lamellar wood products. As a material for furniture boards are taken different varieties of wood: spruce, birch, pine, alder, ash, and beech. In
some cases, fruit tree species are used.
The allowable deviations in dimensions:
- thickness +0.2 mm,
- width +1 mm,
- length +1 mm,
- humidity: not more than 12%.
Advantages of the material
Furniture boards are very popular today. The high demand is easily explained by a large number of advantages, including:
Safety for health
The main advantage of furniture board is the environmental friendliness of the materials from which it is made. Only natural wood species are used for its production.
Practicality and durability
When creating the blade, the lamellas are laid in such a way that the wood fibers are arranged in different directions. This increases the strength indicators by 50-70%.
The production process fully preserves the natural texture of the wood. The texture and shade of each species of wood is beautiful in its own way. The rich choice of patterns and colors allows you to create interiors in different styles.
Solid wood is much harder to dry than small lamellae individually. Therefore, the percentage of moisture in furniture boards is low. Some types of boards can be used for the arrangement of the bathroom and kitchen. The main condition — the lamellae must be connected with a special glue, treated with a special wax or glue.
Resistance to mold and mildew
The outer surface of wood boards is treated with antiseptic. Mould and fungus do not settle on it. This results in a long service life.
Due to the different orientation of the fibers, furniture boards do not succumb to cracking. Solid wood often suffers from this problem, because the wood fibres are in one direction.
The boards are easy to sand and cut. Working with them is not difficult. In addition,
the surface can easily be restored after damage.
