Types of wood - Carpentier Hardwood Solutions
Carpentier Hardwood Solutions delivers semi-finished products, such as oak beams (surfaced or not), waney-edged boards, wooden boards, wooden posts and sheet pile walls. Furthermore, we offer all-in-one solutions such as timber framed buildings, wooden fencing, wooden decking and timber cladding. Our products are available in different types of wood.
Carpentier Hardwood solutions specialises in European hardwood. We deliver various products in beech, ash, oak and Kebony (new). These wood types are purchased directly on the basis of the wood logs. First we carry out an extensive study of all the beech, ash and oak logs in the forest. We then buy the rights in order to chop down the trees. After the different types of wood are assorted as to quality, they are processed into different wood products.
Thermowood – HOT-wood
Thermowood is the perfect ecological alternative to tropical wood types. We deliver thermo ash and poplar under the name of HOT-wood. This thermowood is heated up to at least 215 °C. The heat treatment makes the wood more durable and resistant against moist and wood rot. As time goes by the attractive colour of the thermowood will eventually turn into a beautiful grey. It is for these reasons that HOT-wood is extremely suited for outdoor solutions such as wood decking, timber framed buildings and timber cladding. HOT-wood is strong, durable and resistant against moist. Tears, knots or worms do not stand a chance. It is guaranteed, durability class I
American wood types
Next to European hardwood, Carpentier Hardwood Solutions also delivers various American types of wood, such as American white oak, red oak, yellow poplar, cherry, walnut and hard maple. We can offer you a wide range of fixed and random widths. Our American types of wood are mostly incorporated in furniture, ceilings, parquet floors, kitchens, frames, panelling and stairs.
