Understanding Plywood Grading
EUROPEAN UNION TIMBER REGULATION (EUTR) All our panel products are EUTR compliant, a regulation designed to combat the trading and harvesting of illegal timber. Metsä Wood (our suppliers of Marine & metsadeck use a recognised due diligence tool which analyses the risk of illegal timber entering the supply chain.
CE MARKING The CE mark is a fitness for purpose, not a quality mark. CE marking, along with the supporting documentation, is the way for manufacturers to demonstrate that their products conform to a harmonised technical specification and therefore the CPD (Construction Products Directive). The technical specification to permit CE marking of plywood is EN13986 - Wood based panels for use in construction.
Is a standard for the structural testing of panel products, but is only applicable to the test undertaken. If the panel is to be used for flooring, roofing or wall sheathing, test data applicable to these specific end uses should be available on request. If in doubt, ask. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to provide the structural test data to support the CE2+ claim. If the mill or supplier cannot provide the relevant test information and show that the test is applicable to the required end use, i.e. Walls, Floors and Roofs, it is not an appropriately tested product for these end uses even if it carries a CE2+ mark. Structural data should consist of bending strength and stiffness, compression, tension and shear strength, impact resistance and point load.
BBA CERTIFIED Selecting BBA approved products is a sure way to avoid problems at a number of stages in the building process. BBA approved products will meet the criteria set out in the relevant Agrément Certificates to ensure the approved specification is met.
Species must comply with 1 of 3 performance classes within EN636. The three classes are as follows:
• EN636-1 Class 1, plywood will not delaminate in interior conditions (warm roofs, intermediate floors, timber frame and partition walls).
• EN636-2 Class 2, plywood will not delaminate in humid conditions or if it is to be used externally . Plywood should be treated or covered (cold roofs, ground floors, timber frame external walls).
Structural plywood with test data available to support structural status for specific end use.
Class 3, plywood will not break up in exterior weather conditions (fully exposed service conditions).
EN314 PART 2
Glue Bond, this is divided into 3 parts:
• EN314 CLASS 1 Dry conditions, appropriate for normal interior use. Replaces MR plywood.
• EN314 CLASS 2 Humid conditions, appropriate for protected external applications, capable of resisting weather exposure for short periods of time. Also suitable for interior use where the moisture level is raised above Class 1. Replaces Type 1.
• EN314 CLASS 3 Exterior conditions, able to withstand weathering conditions and liquid water over sustained periods of time.
BS1088 British standard covering the technical requirements for Marine plywood.
BS EN300 Applies to OSB and is the standard applicable for dimensional tolerances, humidity , moisture, swelling, thickness, strength of materials, bending, modulus of elasticity , tensile strength.
E1 EMMISIONS CLASS Covers the amount of formaldehyde released by the glue line. The glue used in plywood construction is a significant part of the cost make-up. A way to reduce that cost is to use more formaldehyde in the glue thus increasing the formaldehyde released by a panel. ‘Non Interior’ and ‘External Use Only’ is generally a sign that the panel has an E2 or worse formaldehyde rating. Boards of Class E1 can be used both internally and externally and will have less chance of causing irritation. Boards with an E1 rating in an internal situation will cause no greater concentration than 0.1 ppm of formaldehyde, conforming to the guidelines of the World Health Organisation.
