WoodSolutions launches comprehensive Timber Species App

31 October 2017

WoodSolutions has launched the WoodSolutions Species App to support professionals in the design and build industry, including furniture makers and DIYers to choose and specify the best timber species and products for structural, exterior and interior applications.

The free App, now available for Apple and Android devices from their app stores, covers a broad range of hardwood and softwood species, lists suppliers for each of the species and details application types and available engineered wood products. The comprehensive list of 100+ Australian and imported timber species can be filtered by wood type, colour group, Bushfire Attack Level (BAL), durability and strength ratings to provide a refined search result.

The WoodSolutions Species App will support design professionals during the research phase of a project and will enable them to find the fit-for-purpose solution for their requirement.

“Our objective,” explains Eileen Newbury, National Marketing and Communications Manager, “was to take all that wealth of resources and information available on wood species and deliver it into a convenient, easy to use tool that is available on the go. The app has the potential to make the decision process so much easier and faster.”

The WoodSolutions Species App is available for free download in the iTunes (Apple) or Play Store (Android). To download it, simply search for WoodSolutions in each of the stores and click download. To find out more about the App, click here to download the WoodSolutions Species App infographic – functionalities and features at a glance.
