Timber building materials in Indonesia
There is a wide range of mostly board products manufactured in Indonesia. About 300 companies are producing barecore, blockboard and plywood. The most common species used is Sengon (Paraserianthes falcataria). 90% of these companies are barecore producers only. These products are mainly for export and used as material for furniture, doors and other panel products.
Timber construction materials are new products for the Indonesian sector. More and more companies are shifting towards becoming construction supply manufacturers. Lightwood is predestined as a timber construction material in the form of LVL, Glulam and CLT.
Standards are important elements of international trade and construction. Standards ease the communication between buyers and sellers, and allow compliant companies easy access to various markets. International standardization work is carried out by the International Organization for Standardization, conventionally known as ISO, which publishes international standards designed to harmonize national standards. There is also a European Committee for Standardization [CEN].
