Standard Sawn Timber
Sawn timber, which mainly comes from the pine, spruce and elm species, is the world’s most widely used material for all areas of construction. Its properties, such as the many possible uses, its high strength to weight ratio and its easy mouldability, are advantages that have extended its use for many years.
Our raw material for the production of this product comes from sustainable forest management and is processed according to the latest technologies.
This type of resource is very versatile and its dimensions are obtained by different cuts and quarterings that seek to make the best use of the trunk.
