KVH® structural timber

Product information

KVH® structural timber (Konstruktionsvollholz) is a technically-dried, strength-graded and generally finger-jointed solid wood product made from softwood (mainly spruce) and designed for a wide variety of applications in modern timber construction. Alternative types of softwood are also available for special uses, such as for thresholds or for outdoor areas not directly exposed to the elements.

KVH structural timber is sorted, calibrated and has precisely defined dimensions and load-bearing capacities for both visible and non-visible areas. Compared with conventional sawn wood, KVH must conform to much stricter requirements. The timber is graded in accordance with EN 14081 and German standard DIN 4074-01. Compliance is monitored by third-party quality inspection institutes. 

We offer KVH in 2 surface qualities: KVH-Si for visible structures and KVH-NSi for non-visible structures, and in lengths up to 16 metres. Both types come finger jointed, and the joints are barely visible as to preserve the natural look of the surface.
