what kind of wood to use outdoors?

The selection of anti-corrosion wood generally chooses pine and fir coniferous wood with low density. Some of them have low density and loose wood fibers, which are conducive to the penetration of wood preservatives, and have good processing performance. The texture is beautiful and smooth. The produced anti-corrosion wood With beautiful appearance and good physical properties, it is suitable for various outdoor landscape facilities.

Today’s commonly used preservative woods include sylvestris pine/Russian pine (generally produced in Russia and Northeast my country), southern pine (produced in the southern United States), Nordic pine (commonly known as Finnish wood, generally produced in Finland and Germany), Citi Pine (origin in the United States and Canada), etc.

Pinus sylvestris preservative wood

Pinus sylvestris is fine in quality and straight in texture. The wood color of Pinus sylvestris is yellowish, its texture is clear and clear, and its appearance is simple and elegant. Similar to red pine, it can be used instead of red pine.

Russian sylvestris pine can be directly treated with high-pressure infiltration for full-section anticorrosion treatment. Its excellent mechanical performance and beautiful texture are highly recommended by designers and engineers.

Russian sylvestris pine preservative wood is a good material, and it is the most widely used on the market and has a wide range of uses. The treated sylvestris pine preservative wood has various uses and is used in a variety of outdoor landscapes and structural buildings. Projects such as wooden plank roads, pavilion platforms, pavilions, waterside corridors, flower trellises and fences, trail piers, children’s play areas, flower beds, trash cans, outdoor furniture, outdoor environments, hydrophilic environments, and indoor and outdoor structures can all be used .

Southern pine preservative wood

Southern pine is durable and durable. Ideal for boardwalks, patios and exterior decking. The moisture content of southern pine is normally limited to less than 19%. For wood marked “KD19″, the maximum moisture content is 19%. Marked “KD15″ means that the moisture content is 15%. Of all the softwoods, southern pine has the strongest nail holding properties. Nail-holding properties of southern pine are enhanced when dried or air-dried. Because of its unique molecular structure, the preservative can easily penetrate into the wood, and after a certain period of drying and fixing, the active ingredients of the preservative are fixed in the wood tissue without loss, maintaining the long-term anti-corrosion and insect-proof effects of the treated wood. After the wood undergoes strict anti-corrosion treatment, its processing performance will not be affected, and its service life can be extended by 3 to 5 times when used in the corresponding specified environment. It is not perishable even if it is exposed to wind and rain or in contact with the ground or used in high temperature areas.

Treated Southern Pine Treated Wood can be used for: Decks, Patios, Plank Piers, Fences, Outdoor Furniture, Patios, Promenades, Bridges, Baseboards, Store Signs, Planters, Benches, Stadium Seating, Platform Bases, Game Rooms , entertainment facilities, storage, lattice sheds, corridors, steps, roller coasters, railings, road signs, sound barriers, retaining walls, waterproof walls. Southern pine has the highest design value of all softwoods. It has won the reputation of “the best structural tree species in the world”.

Douglas fir preservative wood

The most little-known advantage of Douglas fir is its strength and weight. Douglas fir has a high specific gravity, which brings us direct benefits in decoration and decoration. It has good nail holding power and fixing force, and it is small enough to be used for commercial purposes in the construction of ordinary wooden houses. Small wooden houses and multi-storey buildings can use Douglas fir as an effective load-bearing and connecting part.

In North America, Douglas fir is the strongest wood among softwoods. All aspects of the wood perform well, including bending fiber stress, tensile force along the grain, transverse shear force, pressure across the grain and pressure along the grain. , It is precisely because of these characteristics that Douglas fir is used in professional frame making, and other frame woods are also selected according to the characteristics of Douglas fir.

Finnish wood preservative

The red pine anti-corrosion wood imported from Finland is commonly called Finnish wood. Finland is located in a high-latitude area, and the climate is cold. The growth cycle of trees is long and the growth rate is slow. Therefore, Finnish preservative wood has many advantages over other woods, such as clear texture, natural surface color, and better wood density and stability.

Finnish wood is used for interior decoration. Its lines are more smooth and natural than ordinary wood, and it exudes texture. It can make the decoration style of the whole house elegant, clean, simple and simple, giving people a natural and primitive atmosphere.

Finnish wood preservative wood can be used for outdoor landscape construction such as wooden structure buildings, anticorrosive wood floors, anticorrosive wood pavilions, wooden structure gallery frames, etc., and can also be used as the basic material for outdoor furniture to produce outdoor tables and chairs, swing chairs, park chairs, etc. It can produce carbonized wood, engraved wood, sauna board, wood wall board and other products through deep processing of wood.
