The term ‘engineered wood’ refers to a range of man-made wood productscomprising wooden fibre or boards and binding agents. These products are available in different types and shapes and, typically, in various dimensions.
The underlying principle of ‘engineered wood’ is simple: achieving maximum strength using the minimum material or weight. As a result, these products tend to be lighter and easier to process than traditional wood, although their main advantage is that they are specifically developed to satisfy precise performance requirements. Their technical properties are commonly supported by ETA approvals or CE conformity declarations, and the products therefore offer greater assurance than traditional timber building materials that do not come with similar such test certificates.
