Birch Plywood

KEYSTONE LININGS’s Birch plywood is a multi-layered plywood panel manufactured from 1.5mm thick layer that produces a panel of uniform appearance. It is produced from slow-growing plantation logs sourced across the northern hemisphere from Russia to Scandinavia. The slow growth produces layer that is close-grained and of a consistently high quality.

2440mm B/BB Multiply – Rotary

High quality rotary ply is used for the face and back of this plywood and it is constructed with multiple constructions. Multiple is a term used to describe that the plywood is produced with the same thickness layerss throughout resulting in a stable product that is also visibly appealing. Highly sought after for wall and ceiling applications where the plywood is clear finished to highlight its unique character.
