Fire Rated Birch Plywood
Plywood is an extremely versatile product. It is used for a wide range of interior, exterior and structural applications - from shuttering formwork through to internal finish grade plywood.
Plywood is basically a number of thin pieces of wood bonded together to produce a flat sheet. The biggest differences between each type of plywood are:
1. The overall thickness (6mm, 12mm, 18mm etc)
2. The type and quality of timber used (Birch, hardwood etc) and
3. The grade and certification standard of plywood specified (BB/BB, CE2+ EN636/2 etc)
Points to watch when handling plywood are:
1. Store plywood panels flat and level.
2. Keep finish faces inward and cover stacks to protect from bumping and abrasion.
3. Protect panel edges and corners. This is especially important with tongue and groove plywood.
4. Carry panels on edge (always being careful not to damage faces, edges and corners).
5. When plywood is used as a finishing material, deliver to job-site at the last possible moment.
6. Protect panels from sunlight, water or excessive humidity.
7. All cut edges should be sealed with a good quality varnish or oil based paint.
