Wood Advantages

Nowadays is necessary to change the direction of the building sector towards a sustainable development, trying to satisfy the actual needs without compromise the next generations’ needs.

To carry out this goal, the wood and their derivate products are the most suitable material, due to the technician and environmental qualities.

Apart from is an ecological material, the wood brings other excellent qualities as a high resistance, durability, adaptability, versatility… that make the wood products one of the best references of the habitats, decoration, construction, packaging in the 21th century

Some reason to choose woods products are:


  • Durable material. Due to the new technical treatment in the wood products, the good qualities and properties of the products stay longer and just with a simply maintenance, is possible to recover the initial properties.

  • Reusable, recycle and recoverable material. Timber is a renewable material that comes directly from trees in sustainable forest management.

  • Due to the cellular structure, timber is and excellent thermal insulator, avoiding  sudden change of temperature, reducing the need of heating and cooling.

  • Keep the hygroscopic balance with the environment, due to its porous structure.

  • Excellent acoustic insulator, due to the chemical composition in lignin and cellulose that absorb an important energy of acoustic waves, with the reduction of acoustic pollution and other phenomenon as reverberation.

  • Timber is bound with efficiency energetic. Timber products are really competitive because the energy loss, mainly calorific, is very little compared with other materials, due to its porous structure full of air that becomes timber in the best thermal and acoustic insulator.

  • Apart from the energetic save that suppose the use of timber products, we have to consider also the save that suppose the recycle of all the components when end the product's useful service life.

  • Beneficial for health due to timber product give a subjective comfort.

  • Adaptability.

  • Short time to staging.

  • Structural stability.

  • Better resistance against fire than other materials due to the low thermal conductivity.

Environmental Advantages

  • Wood is the only material that reducesthe CO2 emission, as play an important role to slow down Climatic Change.
  • Timber needs less energy in its manufacturing process, so has an  environmental impact lower than other materials in their life service cycle.

  • Wood is an important drain of CO2meanwhile the products keep their life service cycle.

  • Wood is a natural resource, renewable, whose consume help the local sustainable management of forests and environmental protection.

  • Sustainable forestall management, timber industry could continue it activity in the future, also strengthen the sense of social and environmental responsibility.

  • Timber products make easier to carry out the commitments of the Kyoto protocol.

Econonomical and social

  • Furniture and timber sector register 36.781 companies and 212.900 workers.

  • Timber sector is mainly set up with SME

  • Using autochthonous wood, promote the strengthen of local industry and rural development.
