At Southern Timber we supply a wide variety of ply, OSB, MDF and chipboard sheet products. Located near Newton Abbot the depot at Southern Timber is ideally located to distribute these sheet materials throughout South Devon, Exeter, Plymouth and parts of Cornwall.
We normally purchase a pine ply which is manufactured in China, the ply is structurally graded and conforms to EN standards 636 and 314.
EN314 relates to bonding quality, this quality is determined by the type of adhesive and the quality of the core veneer. The G2 ply conforms to Bond Class II making it suitable for use in humid areas or exposure to occasional wetting.
EN 636 takes into account the bond quality and the biological durability of the wood species used in the plywood. This biological durability refers to the natural capability of the wood to resist the detrimental effects of fungal decay and beetle larvae. The G2 ply conforms to Specification Class II making it suitable for use in humid areas or exposure to occasional wetting.
Whatever class a ply might achieve the product stuill requires finishing with a product suitable for the specific application. Even marine ply needs careful application of an appropriate water resistant finish which must be applied when the ply is dry enough for the finish to adhere.
This G2 structural ply can be used in a wide range of constructional applications: e.g. concrete shuttering; structural walls with studwork; site hoarding; shed walls, roofing & flooring amongst others. Please note that this ply is not recommended for cutting into smaller pieces, if this is important then please speak to a member of staff who can advise on a more suitable product for your purpose.
