Surfaces and
Qualitydefinition

Surfaces and Qualitydefinition

As a standard, we produce KLH solid wood panels in spruce and in three different surface qualities, which can be combined as required. This applies without restriction for all the panel types shown previously.

SURFACE TREATMENT AND SPECIAL SURFACES

Both the industrial visible quality and the domestic visible quality panels are fully sanded. We also offer domestic visible quality surfaces in a brushed version. Should you require UV protection, varnished elements or any other surface treatment, please contact us. The same applies to surfaces in other types of wood, which we can offer depending on customer requirements and the availability of raw materials.

OVERVIEW OF THE INDIVIDUAL SURFACES

  Domestic Visible (DVQ) Industrial Visible (IVQ) Non Visible (NVQ)
Application Area Visible components without restrictions used in residential constructions. Visible components with with moderate restrictions, not recommendet for residential constructions. Pure structural components with subsequent panelling.
Demand towards Surface high demand medium demand no demand
Production-Related References chamfer on TL panels chamfer on TL panels no chamfer
Surface Finishing In-Plant fully sanded (one- or double sided) also one side brushed fully sanded (one- or double sided) planed
Surface Treatment In-Plant on request on request not possible

Minimum Requirements

The given surface qualities at delivery only include the non-machined top layer but not the edges of the elements. Edges as well as machined surfaces are subject to our non-visual surface criteria.

Range of validity The given surface qualities
at delivery only include the
non-machined top layer
but not the edges of the
elements.
The edges as well as
machined surfaces are
subject to our non-visual
surface criteria.
Crack formation Like all solid wood products, the above stated
qualities are subject to crack and joint
formation as a result of drying to their future
compensation moisture balance when installed
due to the product characteristics.
This cannot be prevented.
