Paulussen Houthandel has developed a thorough business management approach in which we map out the entire process from tree to project.
As a result, we can proudly announce that we are successfully working on the next GLOBAL GOALS For Sustainable Development:
By choosing wood from certified forests, you give the forest economic value and enable the forest manager to protect the forest.
Yield data from various FSC® concessions shows that an area of more than 1,000 m² of tropical forest (0.1 hectare) produces a yield of approximately 0.5 m³ of hardwood. Because the yield can differ per hardwood species, averages have been used.
The FSC® forest calculation tool is a first step in quantifying the positive impact of using FSC® wood on protecting forests. No rights can be derived from the tool and the calculated impacts.
Did you know that there are more than 50,000 tropical wood species? However, we currently only use a small amount of these species.
Will you choose Lesser Known Timber Species (LKTS) from FSC® in our circular facade system Forestlines®?
Then you give value to lesser-known wood species and your choice protects the forest and its biodiversity.
Would you like to know more about the Lesser Known Timber Species?
The Forestlines® gives an optimal yield to every tree trunk.
Narrow and shorter pieces are integrated into our system almost without any problems because the aluminum connector secures them optimally.
Because you do not have to bring the planks together on the substructure, you will reduce sawing losses by up to half and you will achieve optimal use of untreated wood as a raw material.
By focusing heavily on variable widths, we also want to emphasize the narrower 'recovery sizes'.
We integrate as many parts of the tree trunk as possible so that each tree trunk gets optimal yield.
If you want to give wood a second life, the return is usually severely limited technically.
Because the bad parts are sawn away, you quickly end up with a lot of shorter and narrower wood.
Forestlines® is a revolution in the world of recycled wood.
The wood is properly clamped over the entire length and should not come together on the substructure, etc. This ensures that the efficiency of recycled wood is strongly optimized.
Forestlines® can have used mooring posts resawn and then give them a very high-quality second life in facade cladding.
Depending on the type of wood, this is also possible up to fire reaction class B-s1,d0 without treatment.
