With the special “kiln-dried” version, the waste wood is “dried” for several days in a drying chamber at over 60 ° C, thus preventing insecticide infestation in the delivery condition. It is an environmentally friendly form of pest control.
However, we ask for your understanding that after this point in time, a possible new infestation is beyond our control and therefore cannot be ruled out.We therefore recommend preventive treatment against renewed worm infestation.
Reclaimed wood is called “rough sawn” if the original surface has been sawn off. This is done primarily on one side of the waste wood (e.g. cut bottom / top side of old wood beams). The rough sawn surface can be recognized by the lighter color.
The surface of the old wood is processed with a rotating brush head. As a result, soft wooden parts are released from the surface, the hard components remain and define a structured surface.
Reclaimed wood beams were originally used in commercial and residential buildings. The beams were connected to one another without metal but with bungholes and notches.
Notch-free bars are rarer and must be selected carefully. That is why the option ‚free from notches and bungholes‘ comes with a certain surcharge.
Beams and rafters were made by hand from tree trunks around 100 years ago. At that time this was not done by a machine, but only with diligence and perseverance.
Bars are available in thicknesses from approx. 10x12cm to approx. 24x26cm and in lengths from 0.5 to 13m. In addition, they have a rectangular cross-section and are not square – e.g. 14x16cm.
The indication of the beam dimension therefore always shows a certain fluctuation. See the description in your offer.
This means that longer bars are slightly narrower at one end than at the other – e.g. at the beginning 14x16cm and at the end 12x14cm. The reason for this lies in the shape of the former tree which was stronger on the trunk than it is in the treetop.
