All wood is the same. Right?… Wrong.
Engineered wood is manufactured by binding together solid pieces of high-grade wood with structural adhesives, in a tightly monitored atmosphere. It’s an example of humans taking something from nature and making it even better.
This manufacturing process allows engineered wood products to meet exacting specifications. Advantages for builders, engineers, architects, and consumers include better overall strength and dimensional stability than with built-up members or solid timbers. Plus, there is less worry about warping and splitting. A precise manufacturing process, results in better appearance, durability and consistency.
Take our Posts, for example.
They are manufactured by laminating graded and kiln-dried lumber utilizing the world’s finest moulding, adhesion and pressing technology. Our focus on quality control, combined with the patented profile and manufacturing process, ensures the post remains straight, will not twist and looks great for years. The hollow design makes our Posts lighter than solid timbers with no loss of structural integrity. In fact, they are stronger, carrying both Canadian & American structural certifications.
