Birch trees can reach an age of 300 years and become 80 ft (25 m) high, but generally they are fully grown after 80 years. Birch is abundant all over the northern globe, and is a well managed resource from an environmental perspective.
Birch wood is an excellent hardwood to manufacture furniture with, due to it’s unique combination of hardness and toughness.
It is amongst the hardest woods used for manufacturing furniture, which provides longer durability of the furniture and is much less prone “dings” and scratches than other woods such as poplar and pine.
Its amongst the toughest woods used for furniture, which means that birch has an excellent ability to resist stress fractures (there is no point in buying a hardwood furniture piece, if it easily chips).
We have found that it is the unique balance of these 2 components that have been most important to us, when selecting the wood material used to manufacture our bunk beds. Additionally we find that the natural color and grain pattern of birch is beautiful which is an added bonus.
We hope that the displayed "Hardness & Toughness Scale" illustrates our reasoning.
Birch tree the
most common hardwood
Below please note the relative hardness and toughness to other wood species often used in furniture production.
The Janka (or side) hardness test measures the force required to embed a .444 inch steel ball to half its diameter in wood. This is one of the best measures of the ability of wood species to withstand denting and wear. It is also a good indicator of how hard a species is to saw or nail. The higher the number, the harder the wood.
The toughness scales reflects the relative bending strength between birch and other wood species measured in Mpa.
