QUALITY SECTION

Bouls
: this term generally indicates a product with superior quality characteristics; reference is made to boards, taken from different trunks or a single plant according to the place of origin and sales area, that are Trimmed or to be Trimmed (in this case the phrase “Trunk recomposed in Bouls” is used because after sawing, the double chamfered boards obtained are ordered recreating the shape of the original trunk).

COMMON: term used to identify the quality level that is generally suitable for making kitchen doors, board and plank flooring and most furniture components.

COMSEL: definition that identifies the improved COMMON selection.

EXPORT/SELECT QUALITY: the first is used to identify Teak Burma trunks that may have some defects on the sides and which are destined mainly for sawing into boards; the second, instead, defines top quality trunks, excellent in structure and colouring, usually destined for engineered veneer.

FAS, FAS F1F, SELECT: special assortments that are particularly suitable for long moulding without defects, finishing products such as door casings, indoor architecture and furniture that requires many long and wide cuts.

PRIME: definition that identifies a higher quality level than the FAS, FAS F1F and SELECT qualities which, for this reason, must be considered improved.

Boards to be Trimmed: this classification includes boards with two chamfers, obtained from cutting the trunk parallel to its longitudinal axis only.

Semi-trimmed boards: the product is made up of a board that has been trimmed on one side, therefore having only one chamfer.

Trimmed Boards: the product has been trimmed on both sides.

Prismatic Boards:when speaking of prismatic boards, reference is made to the composition of the sales package: a package is called prismatic when it contains only boards of the same width.

Multilaminar Prismatic Boards: differently from the previous product, where the single size package of boards is formed by manually selecting from the different widths being produced, in this case boards of a given width are obtained directly from the Multiblade narrower cut process.

Narrower cut: this term indicates the working process in which a board of a given width is sawn in parallel to the longitudinal axis to obtain two or more narrower boards but with the same thickness. Prismatic tables obtained in this manner, if having a width that is generally not above 130 mm, are called Scantling.

Sideboards:indicates the first boards obtained when the trunk is cut: they are therefore the most external with regard to the centre and, excluding special cases, are narrower. This makes it possible for the sawmill to reduce the waste from board chamfering and, as a result, maximise production process efficiency.

U/S: abbreviation of “Unsorted”, the packages are made up of boards with quality that is between the first and the fourth level but not in pre-set percentages.

S/F Knotty Pine:“Saw Falling Knotty Pine” refers to boards obtained from the highest part of the trunk, characterised by the presence of small knots. This product is mostly used when making Perline.

Green Split: scantling obtained from fresh boards. In addition, the words “Outside Centre” refer to a product obtained from regions of the trunk that are outside the heartwood; viceversa, when speaking of “Broken Heart” reference is made to the scantling obtained from the innermost areas that include the heartwood.
