Applications, requirements and suitable PERI solutions

Concrete paving and block industry

Robust and durable production pallets are essential for the manufacture of concrete blocks. PERI Pave production pallets provide a flat surface during the production process and, due to the stable multiplex structure, a very high load-bearing capacity during the storage procedure for drying the blocks. In spite of its high stability, the pallet has a low own weight. The crosswise bonding of the individual veneers ensures a high and uniform transfer of vibrations. This results in not only good concrete compaction but minimizes energy use at the same time.

Robust and durable production pallets are essential for the manufacture of concrete blocks.

The PERI Pave production pallet is coated on both sides with a plastic laminate. This joint-free and easy to- clean surface provides a smooth reverse side of the block and also allows problem-free use for the production of washed concrete stones.

Furthermore, the coating prevents any leakage of the wood constituents and thus discoloration of the concrete blocks. Through customized CNC processing, the PERI Pave can easily be adapted to all machine types.

  • PERI Pave IT
  • Maintenance products

Vehicle industry

Plywood panels are used in various parts of the vehicle production process, therefore different characteristics are required for each. For vehicle floors, wear and slip resistance is very important for both commercial vehicles and trailers as well as for railway carriages and boat decks. PERI wiremesh plywood is the right choice  because the non-slip surface pattern ensures good slip resistance and is also resistant against abrasion. PERI offers different types of surface productions, which are all weather resistant, easy to clean and resistant to chemicals. This prolongs the service life and reduces operating costs. PERI Maxi panels with structured surfaces allow the production of large, joint-free vehicle floors.

For vehicle sub-constructions, uncoated plywood from the PERI range is used. For the interiors, smooth, coated panels are ideally suited which also provide optically high-quality surfaces. Customized constructions and sizes give the manufacturer the freedom to use it in different types of chassis. The plywood panels used in vehicle construction are easy to process on CNC machines but at the same time are so robust that tongue and groove joints are possible as well.

The PERI solutions

  • Plywood with different structured and smooth coatings, also in maxi sizes
  • Uncoated plywood
  • Plywood composite constructions

to the panels for the vehicle constrcution

Timber framed construction

In timber frame construction, structural plywood and OSB panles are primarily used. Important characteristics are dimensional stability and exact accurate tolerances of the utilized panel product.

In constructional timber construction, uncoated plywood and OSB products are primarily used.

For constructional purposes, such as walls, floors and roofs, PERI offers a full range of panel solutions. Our wood panels can be used  both constructive as well as decorative applications. They can be easily machined and are characterized by their low weight.

All PERI products that are used in this field of application are CE or FSC® certified, and also comply with other country-specific standards.

The PERI solutions

  • Structural plywood
  • OSB panels

to the panels for the constructional timber construction

On-Site concrete construction

For on-site concrete applications the panels are exposed to a number of stresses. In addition to environmental influences, the handling and storage of the panel before and during use can have a decisive influence on the life and performance of the product. The number of formwork uses along with the demands regarding the concrete surface quality vary from project to project, and provide two important factors in choosing the right panel.

For in-situ concreting operations, the formlining is exposed to particularly high stresses.

Through our vast experience PERI is able to offer sound solutions in the construction industry with regard to the different surface finishes, wood types, thicknesses and panel sizes required to meet our clients demand. All our formlining panels are characterized by a robust core panel for consistent dimensional stability, whilst maintaining a relatively low dead weight. In addition good workability and lifespan is ensured with the correct handling and use of our panels.

If required, a particularly abrasionresistant coating provides a high number of re-uses. In order to achieve large and joint-free surfaces, we offer special formlining sizes, so-called Maxi panels. But also for secondary operational purposes, our product range includes inexpensive alternatives.

The PERI solutions

  • Coated plywood available in a wide variation of small and maxi sizes and thicknesses
  • Uncoated plywood
  • Plastic coated panels
  • Composite panels

Precast concrete industry

The production of precast concrete elements is very complex and ranges from constructive prefabricated construction to the manufacture of single components.

Due to the wide varity of formork panels, PERI offers optimum support for any requirement in precast plants. Similar to on-site construction, the plywood for precast products features high stability and dimensional accuracy as well as a high-quality core with a hard-wearing and smooth surface. This facilitates multiple utilization and makes a significant contribution to the final concrete finish.

The production of precast concrete elements is very complex and ranges from constructive prefabricated construction through to the manufacture of single components.

For large, joint-free concrete elements, PERI provides a full range of Maxi panels in different thickneses and formats. The easy workability of the panels makes it possible to produce individual precast forms in a short time at low cost.

For support structures, the high strength and dimensional stability of the panel is decisive. For this, a wide range of coated and uncoated plywood products is available.

The PERI solutions

  • Coated panels in small and maxi sizes in various thicknesses
  • Uncoated plywood, chipboard and plastic panels
  • Individual panels solutions to fit the customers requirements

Packaging industry

Panels used as industrial packaging for valuable goods are characterized by its high strength and low weight. Due to their construction, panels are ideally suited for packaging of any type. It is particularly light and, at the same time, meets the high requirements regarding strength and dimensional stability. In addition, it can be easily machined and thus adapted to suit a wide range of packaging sizes.

Plywood which is used as industrial packaging for valuable goods is characterized by its high strength and low weight.

If the focus is on ensuring low weight products softwood panels are the best solution. If a more sturdy packaging is required, then hardwood plywood such as birch is recommended. Also in this fields PERI offers a full range of panels.

The PERI solutions

  • Hardwood and softwood plywood in different qualities, sizes and thicknesses
  • OSB panels

Sustainability and compliance with due diligence during the procurement of our products

Sustainable management is a fundamental principle of PERI. As a result, we source our plywood and panel products from manufacturers that process timber only from legal sources and, as far as possible, from certified, sustainably managed forests.

The product chain (Chain of Custody) of PERI is certified according to the standards of the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) which is non-governmental, non-profit organization. It is committed to sustainable forest management and certified forests which are managed according to these criteria. Sustainability means that the forest management must not only be environmentally sound but also socially acceptable and economically viable. Many PERI subsidiaries are already certified or are currently going through the certification process.

Due diligence and regular, independent verification

Everyone like PERI who sells products made of wood from certified growing regions may make this clear on the end product by attaching the FSC® logo. The prerequisite is that a due diligence system is introduced that covers the entire product chain – from procurement and storage through to the sale. Compliance with the requirements is reviewed annually while certification is renewed every 5 years.

Thus, our customers can be sure that the wood for PERI products which carry the FSC® logo does come from sustainably managed forests.
