Dried or green? Firewood or timber? Not all wood is the same. It’s not just the use that changes depending on its condition and degree of processing: the storage requirements also differ significantly. If you can meet wood’s essential requirements, you will be able to make the most of this natural product’s potential.
In principle, freshly cut or sawn wood is ‘green’ and is best stored outside in the open air. Dry or seasoned wood for construction, furniture, worktops or flooring, on the other hand, belongs indoors. From solid-structure warehouse buildings to industrial tents, a range of different storage space is available. A temporary building specially designed to meet the requirements of the timber industry, trade and wholesalers offers a low-cost solution. The building can also be moved quickly. This gives companies the power to prevent delivery problems due to disrupted supply chains by increasing their storage capacities.
Green or wet wood cannot be used for processing. Construction timber, but also wood for tables, chairs, cupboards, floor boards and worktops, is therefore dried or ‘seasoned’ before use. This is possible through natural air-drying or with the help of artificial processes. The storage building must meet special requirements in order to store the dry wood properly.
The storage building protects the wood from direct sunlight. The roof textile is weatherproof with enhanced UV resistance to shield 99.8% of UVA and UVB radiation. And the wood is kept safe from bad weather too, as the roofing is not only resistant to UV light: it protects against rain and hail as well.
