Sustainability has become very important to consumers and contractors in the last several years. At the same time, what is involved in sustainable material selection is far more complicated than most people realize. There is not one set of standards that determines what is and isn't sustainable, and when it comes to sustainable woods, determining what woods are sustainable can be challenging. Knowing what to consider when trying to choose sustainable wood is important.
Contractors who prioritize sustainability also use the patented LignoLoc® Wooden Nail System made by BECK, the first collated nail made of wood, as well as Cross-Laminated Timber Panels. These panels offer a beautiful and functional solution for building projects and come in various types, including beerier wall panels, non-load-loading wall panels (dividers), and LCLT wall systems (LignoLoc® Cross Laminated Timber panels) which are CLT panels mechanically fastened using LignoLoc® wood nails and no glue. Discovering the innovative applications of sustainable woods like these can lead to a deeper understanding of their benefits and possibilities in construction.
