Door news: if Thai manufacturers want to
make inroads into Japan's still massive post-and-beam market, they
must sell doors in a wide variety of heights and widths. Standard
sizes only suffice for use in imported houses, but different sizes
are used by Japan's post-and-beam builders. To compete in the
post-and-beam market, Thai exporters must provide a custom sized to
fit wooden doors.
Teak True teak grows in Burma and Thailand
naturally and in plantations throughout the tropical world. True
Teak has been prized for centuries as one of the world most durable
and stable woods for outdoor use. Traditionally teakwood is used on
boats and in outdoor furniture, teakwood has also been widely used
for doors and flooring. Burma teakwood exhibits a wide range of
colors when fresh cut, from pale yellows to orange browns with
darker striping, all of which mellows into medium brown tones.
Teakwood undergoes an extreme degree of color change with pronounced
color change from the highly variegated coloring found in material
fresh sanded which then darkens to a golden brown with substantial
muting of the initial color range over time. Teakwood is one of the
worlds most stable hardwoods.
Tectona Grandis Linn or teakwood is a
tall Burmese timber tree known for its hard and durable wood.
Teakwood is highly valued by shipbuilding, furniture and door
construction industry. It has been grown for more than 200 years, it
is a mainstay for many plantations. Teakwood is considered to be a
very valuable wood because of its ability to withstand harsh weather
and climatic changes. Teakwood actually prevents metals from
rusting. Teakwood is very stable, it does not warp when subjected to
variations in humidity and temperature.
During the dry season the tree is
leafless; in hot localities the leaves fall in January, but in moist
places the tree remains green until March. At the end of the dry
season, when the first monsoon rains fall, the new foliage emerges.
Although the tree flowers freely, few seeds are produced because
many of the flowers are sterile. The forest fires of the dry season,
which in India usually occur in March and April after the seeds have
ripened and have partly fallen, impede the spread of the tree by
self-sown seed. In Burmese plantations, teak trees on good soil have
attained an average height of 18 meters (59 feet) in 15 years, with
a girth, breast high, of 0.5 meter (1.5 feet). In the natural
forests of Myanmar and India, teak timber with a girth of about 2
meters (6.5 feet) and a diameter of 0.6 meter (2 feet) is never less
than 100 and often more than 200 years old. Mature trees are usually
not more than 46 meters (150 feet) high.
Teak timber is valued in warm countries principally for its
extraordinary durability. In India and Myanmar, beams of the wood in
good preservation are often found in buildings many centuries old,
and teak beams have lasted in palaces and temples more than 1,000
years. The timber is practically imperishable under cover.
Teakwood is used for shipbuilding, fine furniture, door and
window frames, wharves, bridges, cooling-tower louvres, flooring,
paneling, railway cars, and venetian blinds. An important property
of teak is its extremely good dimensional stability. It is strong,
of medium weight, and of average hardness. Termites eat the sapwood
but rarely attack the heartwood; it is not, however, completely
resistant to marine borers.
