The Benefits of Engineered Timber


The benefits of engineered timber
At OFP Timber Framed Homes we strive to remain at the forefront of the engineered timber sector. To ensure this, we use the latest developments and details available through the Timber Engineering technology sector. We use a select group of market leading partners to ensure that the timber we install in every project is value engineered and is fitted in the minimal amount of time.
Engineered and factory produced, the WebSpan engineered open web joists that we use in our floors out-performs traditional solid wood construction in all aspects. This engineered wood is produced at a reduced moisture content and is therefore dimensionally stable and highly accurate. As the engineered timber is produced with the highest quality materials, it means there are fewer dimensional changes over time, virtually eradicating floor movement and its associated problems – resulting in great floor performance!
In addition to the WebSpan engineered floor system OFP Timber Framed Homes uses the Ultrajoist structure. This engineered timber system utilises the Ultrajoist super dry solid timber. It is ideal for use in flats as it is dimensionally stable. It features market leading acoustics and is pre-treated to prevent against insect attack, wood decay and water ingress. This allows it to retain its strength and straightness both during and after the build process.
All of the OFP Timber Framed Homes engineered timber solutions are sustainable and have PEFC certification. In order to minimise waste all the timber used is finger jointed or alternatively optimised to be reused in other suitable projects. That way you can be sure that any OFP Timber Framed Homes floors we build will be sustainable, eco friendly and the perfect timber engineering solution for your build.
