Grade selection and specification will have a significant impact on both the appearance and performance of wood products in any given application.GWP procurement personnel are specialists well versed in local conditions and customs. They have in-depth knowledge and expertise in sourcing, grading and the preparation of hardwood products.
Contract monitoring and quality control play a vital role in eliminating the enormous costs incurred when substandard timber is shipped.
When tropical hardwoods are specified or purchased without clearly defining grade expectations, there is no assurance of the quality and consistency of the product delivered, and no accountability standard set for the supplier. And since grade affects price, what looks like a good deal on paper might not look nearly as good on your project. If the product is being used in structural applications like decking, grade has a direct impact on mechanical properties and load performance. In the absence of industry established and defined quality control standards for tropical hardwood decking and lumber GWP has developed and published grading standards and product specification language which we apply to our own decking production and timber products.
