Birch Plywood – Structural & Engineering

Birch plywood panels featuring a consistent high density and grain structure provide a very high strength to weight ratio which is ideal for a wide range of structural and engineering applications. Having a consistent density and grain pattern, birch panels are one of the very few plywood products that have reference tables giving loading values for bending strength and modulus of elasticity.

The unique properties of birch plywood provide a multi-purpose, high quality product which can be easily machined and worked to fine finishes and tolerances. Due to its clean and aesthetically pleasing appearance it can be used for clear decorative purposes or overlaid with many different laminates for industrial and functional applications which may require specific performance criteria.

Our extensive range of birch plywood for structural and engineering industries is produced by a range of manufacturers who are renowned for their technical knowledge and ability to produce very high-quality plywood. Products are produced using selected premium birch logs to ensure that all stringent requirements are fully satisfied.
