May 03, 2017

Timber as a building material has the characteristics of light weight, high strength, aesthetics, good processing performance and so on, since ancient times have been favored by people. From Norway's large wooden structure churches and ancient temples in China and Japan, to countless North American buildings of 19th century, the timber structure proves good durability. Modern wooden house construction is very common in many countries in the world. In North America, wooden houses are dominated by the market in 1997, about 1.138 million new single-family villas in the United States, with 9O wooden structures used in 338,000 multi-storey dwellings, most of which also use wood structures. Wooden houses are also widely used in building factories, schools, hotels, gymnasium and so on. In Canada, the timber industry is one of the pillar industries of the country, and its industrialization, standardization and supporting installation technology are very mature. In Asia, a large number of dwellings are constructed using timber, glued wood and cement particleboard, even in densely populated Tokyo area. More than half of the new residential buildings in Japan are timber structures. In northern Europe, Finland and Sweden, residential housing 9O is a layer or two floors of wooden structures.
