Checklist of application for wood products
Fields of application for wood products in public and private use are much more diverse than one might think
In principle, sustainable building, furnishing and procurement could cover significantly more product areas than is currently the case. In addition to fair-trade coffee and ecological food for the public canteen or energy-saving electrical appliances and light sources, building materials also play an important role here. The following list serves to illustrate the wide range of possible uses for wood as a building and construction material in the private, commercial and public sectors. The list is only an excerpt from the variety of possibilities and only wants to give a first impression of the diversity.
When building with wood, don't just think of 10-storey buildings. Very little wood goes into such representative buildings today. But wood can be used optimally in many areas of application. Here is a list of examples where you could use wood everywhere.
If you have more examples of categories and examples, we are looking forward to all information and suggestions.
