butt jointed Albasia timber strips Albasia Falcata Door core boards

Door Core

Door core boards are made from butt jointed Albasia timber strips. There are one single-layer core, and three-layer core. Three layers door core is three layers of butt jointed falcata stave cores sandwiched together in different parallel order to give it a stronger construction compared to a single layer panel board. Both sides are sanded finely to make sure uniform thickness and making it easy for the customers to put decorative materials on it.

Albasia Falcata is a fast growing tree which can be harvested within five to seven years, making it an economic material for producing wood panels such as the Eco-Core Falcata Blockboard. These trees grow well in both high and low rainfall areas on most types of land allowing for maximum efficiency in plantation restoration.
