Other wood products
Wood has long been used as thermal insulation in buildings. Historical fillings such as wood shavings or sawdust have many good properties, including serving as a moisture buffer due to the hygroscopic properties of wood. Today’s equivalent is loose fill cellulose insulation. The material has good thermal insulation properties and can be treated to resist both fire and microbial growth.
Loose fill cellulose fibre insulation.
Wood for the packaging industry
A large amount of the timber consumed by the wood industry is used for wood packaging – e.g. pallets, pallet collars cable drums and packing crates to suit various purposes and quality requirements.
