Wood-based product testing

Determine the properties & uses of wood & wood-based products, structural & non-structural.


Independent testing of wood and wood-based products, structural and non-structural to determine their properties and uses.

The mechanical properties of wood and wood-based products are quite different to those of other materials. We offer specialised testing to determine the properties asked for by specifiers.

Examples of the products we test:
  • Flooring
    • Floor decking from wood-based panels
  • Cladding
  • Joinery
    • Engineered wood joinery profiles
    • Sports equipment
    • Tools
In addition, we are able to carry out testing to determine time related mechanical behaviour such as:
  • Creep
  • Fatigue
  • Duration of load
