What is Plywood and Floor Sheets?

Plywood and Floor Sheets Brisbane

Plywood and Floor Sheets Brisbane: Plywood and floor sheeting are an economical, factory-produced sheet of wood that is a very widely used and popular building material due to its range of uses and benefits. With its precise dimensions, this is a material that does not warp or crack when there are changes in atmospheric moisture.

Plywood and Floor sheeting are a wood product made from three or more thin sheets of wood that are glued together to form a thicker, flat sheet. The logs used to make plywood timber are prepared by steaming or dipping it in hot water. Each sheet is usually between 1 and 4mm thick. 

Plywood can be manufactured from both softwood or hardwood. Additional materials can be added to the face and back veneers to improve durability. These include plastic, oils and resin. These are added as a thin outer layer to resist moisture, abrasion and corrosion. They also facilitate better binding of paint and dyes

Plywood and Floor Sheets: The Benefits

Plywood and Floor Sheets Brisbane

No matter the construction project, plywood provides a variety of benefits. These include:

Strength: Plywood and floor sheeting has all the structural strength of the wood it is made from as well as the properties obtained from the manufacturing process. The grains of each wood sheet are laid at 90 degree angles to each other making the whole timber sheet resistant to splitting. This gives the sheet uniform strength and increased stability. 

Flexibility: Unlike cut timber, plywood and floor sheeting can be custom manufactured to fit any requirement. Any additional plywood and floor sheet layers add more strength to the timber. The thinner the sheet the more flexible it becomes.

Moisture Resistant: The adhesive used to bind the individual wooden sheets makes the plywood resistant to moisture and humidity. An additional layer of paint or varnish may also increase resistance to moisture and water damage. Moisture resistance is important in interior construction, especially on plywood flooring.

Degree of Fire resistance: Plywood and floor sheeting can be treated with a fire resistant coating making it ideal for use in fire resistant structures.

Insulation: Plywood and floor sheeting have a high thermal insulation. This makes it useful as an insulating material for flooring, ceilings, roofing, and wall cladding. This Insulation offered by can also reduce the heating and cooling costs of your property.

Our History

Plywood and Floor Sheets Brisbane

We began Gowan Lea Timbers over 25 years ago when we decided to open a small retail yard for timber needs on the rapidly growing Sunshine Coast of Queensland. We started with two staff members, a forklift, a flat-bed truck, and an office in a shipping container, and as we grew, we gained a solid reputation for boasting the best pine around. 

It didn’t take us by surprise. Our mill—Gowan Lea Sawmilling Company—had been operating for over 40 years and was already a well-respected wholesaler of premium quality western QLD Spotted Gum and Ironbark products. However, when the Queensland State Government bought out and closed Gowan Lea Sawmilling Company through a Regional Forestry Agreement process in 2007, the retail timber yard was left without a supply of the premium pine that our business relied upon.

It was then we entered into a productive relationship with Mary Valley Timbers, a green pine sawmill near Gympie, who had a similar focus on quality and cut 95% Spotted Gum and Ironbark.
