Fall-down and shop grade plywood: an offer

money in the table

This month we introduce you to “fall down” and “shop grade” plywood. Have you ever considered importing this kind of plywood instead the more expensive grades? If not, you can be leaving money on the table.

What are these types of plywood and the differences between them?
  • Fall down Plywood – is a true downfall from production of graded plywood, presenting some mechanical defects such as broken corners, missing core at edges only, press marks, some missing face cover in small areas, some square variation. Its surface is corrected with acrylic mass and sanded on one side.
  • The Shop Grade plywood is one further step down in grading and does permit some blows in the lamination, allowing being used 70% of its area. No sanding or repairing is done.

Don’t hesitate in asking your supplier what they mean by these terms and grades. “Shop Grade”, “Fall down” and “Builder’s Grade” are frequently used terms but they are not clearly defined by any industry standard. A reliable supplier would be glad to explain what precisely they mean when they are using these terms in order to help their customers. Indeed, a seller who can’t make clear what they have to sell must be avoided.
