Living and joinery
Most of the sawn timber produced by Metsä Fibre is used to manufacture housing products such as doors, windows and joinery products.
Windows, ceilings and floors as well as external cladding are made from wood more and more frequently. Each of these wood products has a raw material that is ideal for the specific application.
Nordic pine is bright, and it has even grains. Bottom logs from well-managed forests have very few branches and beautiful top logs have healthy branches. Pine is used to manufacture doors, windows, battens and furniture, for example. Windows made from heartwood are particularly durable.
Sawn timber from spruce is naturally resistant to moisture. Spruce trees have small and healthy branches, which do not crack. Many products used in internal cladding are made from spruce, but it is a particularly popular material in panels and boards used in external cladding.
