Douglas Fir

Our company imports the timber for our frame from Canada or USA. We always use Douglas fir or hem Fir. That is considered to be the king of timber in structural Lumber. Every piece of wood carries a WWPA’s registered grade mark for the assurance that the lumber will consistently meet grade specifications and performance standards.

“Douglas Fir has an enviable performance record. The species has earned respect from industrial users worldwide because when it comes to high performance demands and extreme stress conditions, Douglas Fir meets the test. With its tough, strong fiber, high strength in relation to its weight and dense grain structure, Douglas Fir is a natural choice for industrial and remanufacturing uses”

“When architects and engineers look for the best in structural lumber, their first choice repeatedly is Douglas Fir. It is dimensionally stable and universally recognized for its superior strength-to-weight ratio. Its high specific gravity provides excellent nail and plate-holding ability. The species also enjoys a documented superior performance against strong forces resulting from natural phenomena such as winds, storms and earthquakes. It is truly the ideal structural and general purpose wood for framing lumber in residential, light commercial, multistory and industrial construction.”
