As part of the ISO certification process,
Lafor examined its operations for opportunities to enhance its handling of raw materials; reduce its environmental footprint; and create replicable, transparent operational processes. The ISO 14001 accreditation covers purchasing, milling, handling and storing and manufacturing of lumber, edge glued panels and solid wood furniture.
Lafor utilizes Primultini bandsaw and MEM twin bandsaw for primary and secondary log itemization. The machines are assisted by skilled personnel for accuracy and maximum utilization of resources. Our comprehensive timber manufacturing process is contained under roofs. That protects and enhances the natural color of the wood we saw, steam, and dry. Lafor utilizes the latest technology for steaming and drying its lumber.
Glued timber manufacturing process
The glued timber is manufactured from narrow pieces of wood glued along their edges to create large width boards.
The narrow pieces of wood used for edge-glued panels are cut from larger pieces of wood. We remove visual defects such as knots, cracks, and wanes. The finished boards are more dimensionally stable than a single piece of wood of the same dimensions. They better resist warping, cupping, and twisting because of the grain's random orientation in the adjacent sections.
As an industrial product, the glued timber come finished or unfinished. The boards are often cut to specific furniture manufacturing sizes, or for countertops and tabletops, stair treads, drawers, and cutting boards.
Stair treads and stair parts manufacturing process
Our millwork operation fully equipped with modern molding machinery, laminating equipment, CNC machines, and wood finishing equipment. That gives us the technical capacity to handle standard and custom staircases construction. As a leading stairways and stair treads manufacturer, we pride ourselves on our products' quality and price. Quality control is a crucial factor in our production process, along with uniqueness and usability in our stair parts design process.
