Our Range of Birch Plywood

Birch Plywood Sheets

Birch plywood is a high-quality, multi-ply hardwood panel that provides consistency in strength with fine grain texture and ease of finishing. Birch also offers a high aesthetic standard and can be used untreated or stained. At Builders Marketplace, our range of birch plywood sheets will be suitable for any building project.

What is Birch Plywood Made From?

Birch Plywood is constructed using layers of birch, held together with resin, and has one of the highest strength to weight ratios because of this reinforced layer structure. Birch Plywood sheets are also an excellent choice for using with machines such as CNC boring machines and radial saws.

The BB Grade Birch Plywood comes almost flaw-free and creates a beautiful finish from all angles. As well as this, the BB/CP Grade means that one side has a few imperfections while the other side has a purer, cleaner finish. This duality gives you price scales for your specific requirements.

Why Should I use Birch Plywood?

Birch is one of the most sustainable options for your projects or your clients. As a quick-growing tree, and currently, in abundance in Northern Europe, the felling of birch has minimal impact on the biodiversity levels when it is felled. Birch is also more resistant to warping than any other plywood sheets and the screws stay tight and secure in the holes.
