Traceable raw material

The raw material for our joinery timber comes from Holmen’s own slow-growing and responsibly managed forests, or is bought in from private forest owners. Our advanced wood grading technology, which includes X-ray scanning, sawing with a horizontal saw, a trimming saw with camera sorting and batch kilns with pressure frames, produces even and stable quality.

Flooring grade 

Flooring grade timber is graded with sound knots. The product is used primarily to make solid wood flooring for indoor use. Moisture content 8%.

Furniture grade 

Furniture grade is a grade with a very high proportion of sound knots and an even structure. The product is sawn from a log that has already been graded for sound knots. The product is used mainly in the edge-glued products industry for furniture components, shelving and so on. Furniture grade timber is dried down to a moisture content of 9% or 11%.

Green split ​ 

Green split timber uses the grain structure and proportion of heartwood to create the best possible properties for the window industry. Since the end product may be exposed to wind and weather, a high proportion of heartwood is needed for a degree of natural protection. The right volume of heartwood in the log can be optimised from as early as the log sorting stage. Green split timber is supplied with or without pith/centre free. Moisture content 12%.

Centre free product – Monolit®

Monolit® is a special product produced for dimensional stability. The product is pith-free, and so free from pith cracks, with horizontal growth rings but no splay knots. Monolit is mainly used for bed and table legs, staircase details, rails and windows and thus often needs to be dried down to a lower moisture content, 12%, to suit indoor environments. The product is dried to meet the needs and wishes of the customer.
