The panel allowed the industrialization in the field of furniture. In the past, furniture was made of solid wood. It is a noble, ecological material, but which has as default the fact that it is alive : Presence of defects, heterogeneous supply dimensions, dimensional variability, hygrometry variability, ….
To overcome this problem, and indeed, to make this material homogeneous and stable, by-products have been created :
- Finger-joined wood
- The paneling
- OSB panels
For the furniture industry, we will retain the last 3, which provide the most benefits and can be supplied in all countries.
These panels have :
- Regular supply dimensions (standardization in panel dimensions)
- A homogeneous quality
