2500mm x 1250mm x 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 25, 31mm AB/BB (long grain - the grain direction runs 2500 long)
1250mm x 2500mm x 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24, 30mm BB/BB (cross grain - the grain direction runs 1250 long)
1525mm x 3050mm x 6.5, 9, 12, 18, 24, 30mm BB/BB (cross grain - the grain direction runs 1525 long)
3050mm x 1290mm x 10, 13, 19, 25 and 31mm B/BB (long grain - the grain direction runs 3050 long, this veneer has joins)

AB/BB - one good face/downgrade back
BB/BB - downgrade both faces (BB faces must be re-veneered or laminated, it is not face grade, this panel will have butterfly patches. A butterfly patch refers to an imperfection on the face of the board that has been cut out and replaced with a similar coloured Birch veneer.)
AB/AB - good both faces (this is a custom panel, please forward your enquiry)
B/BB - one good face/downgrade back re-veneered with Sliced Crown Cut Birch veneer

AB/BB, AB/AB and B/BB sheets are re-veneered with interior grade glue, if exterior grade is required please specify on your order or forward your enquiry, extra charges may apply.

Sheets can be pressed together locally to create thicker panels up to approximately 250mm. Minimum quantities and additional lead time may apply.

Downgrade faces have butterfly patches which may or may not be seen on samples. The appearance of a small sample is indicative only and being a natural product both grain and color can vary. Natural veins and knots can occur on the face veneer, which are not classified as defects. A small timber sample does not completely represent the appearance of a larger surface of the same product. The Eco-Core® White Birch Multiply is a natural product and will have natural veins and knots on the face veneer as well as variances in colour, grain, texture and over-all appearance from sheet to sheet. The Eco-Core® White Birch Multiply Face Grade and Tolerances is available for download.
