  • Structural timber, (shear, tensile, delamination, bending, density, moisture content tests)
  • Board products (including doors, mosaic flooring, plywood blockboard, fibre and particle board)
  • Finger joint timber
  • Transmission, telephone and fencing poles/droppers
  • Laminated wood products
  • High density scafflan
  • Doors, moisture resistance tests
