Quality with a luxurious look

Used scaffolding wood

Used scaffold wood has a beautiful atmosphere. Used scaffold wood has traces of use that have arisen through the years. Used scaffolding is actually second hand wood. Originally new scaffolding boards, this scaffolding wood was used years ago in construction. A scaffolding was made along newly built walls, in order to be able to build up the walls. The planks were laid on the steel tubes so that they could stand on them. So a metal scaffold was built with used scaffold wood as the work floor. The construction workers walk across this work floor, which is a kind of gallery that is placed along a building. All building materials go over the scaffolding planks, here you have to think of bricks, cement, window frames, roof tiles. 

All building materials that are used and all the personnel involved in the construction make use of this scaffolding floor. The intensive use, the frequent use creates used and weathered used scaffold wood. The elements, so the weather, water and wind have had an influence on the originally fresh scaffold wood for years. Throughout the years, the wood is worn and soiled by the use. Also, the used scaffolding wood is contaminated with construction metal residues and the wood has become grey in colour. So each plank of used scaffold wood is therefore the same in appearance. Each plank will have different residues of cement, paint and other residues on it. You should also be aware of cracks in the wood, and there are steel nail plates on the end of the wood. Used wood has a shorter lifespan than new wood. 

You can imagine that used scaffolding wood has been affected by use and the elements for years, so you will not enjoy it as long as used scaffolding wood. We advise you not to buy used scaffolding. Actually used scaffolding has more disadvantages than advantages, which is why we have developed a good alternative, so there are only advantages to not using used scaffolding. We have developed an aged look scaffolding wood that does reflect the old atmosphere well, but you do not suffer from eg cement residues, and each board is equally old made. The advantage for you is that each board has the same appearance, and therefore you can make the best project.

Shaved scaffolding wood is a type of wood which is used for the production of scaffolding. With planed scaffolding wood all the charm of the wood is actually planed away. So you buy pine wood, which is planed super smooth. Actually this is the same as the pine beams that you can buy at any DIY store. To make a table from this, or any other project. In our opinion, this cannot be the intention. The best result you get if you fine sawn pine scaffold wood untreated, and only lightly sand the wood when you are done with the project. With this, all splinters are gone, and the wood still has a fine relief, so depth in the wood to see. After all, why else would you buy scaffolding wood?

Old scaffolding wood or used scaffolding wood?

Old scaffolding wood is the same as used scaffolding wood. The name old scaffolding wood indicates exactly what the name says. Why should you buy old scaffolding wood? Old scaffolding wood is used scaffolding wood. The wood has been used for years in construction, and has been lying in wind and weather. Used scaffolding is not carefully handled, used scaffolding is thrown and has dents and damage over the years. Also, used scaffolding is often crooked, cracked and dirty. This filth is created by frequent use of used scaffold wood, cement and paint residue are on and in the wood. If you want to saw these boards, your tools will wear out faster, because cement sawing is something completely different from sawing wood. Usually, old scaffolding wood or new scaffolding wood is used to make furniture. We can not imagine that you want to sit on old dirty planks. Therefore, we only sell old scaffold wood, so new wood in an old jacket.

New Scaffolding wood or used scaffolding wood

We only sell new scaffolding wood. We buy scaffolding wood directly from sawmills in Europe. Used scaffolding is difficult to obtain. By buying new scaffolding by ourselves at the sawmills, a number of factors can be guaranteed by us. Firstly, we as hardwood discount stand for quality. Secondly, we only want to receive fresh wood. Unlike used scaffolding wood, these boards are never the same. Thirdly, because of the short lines we receive new supply of wood every week. And last but not least, we can give you a fixed low price all year round! We have new scaffolding in stock in various lengths. The most common lengths are 2, 2.5 length 3 and 4 and 5 meters. Always in the thickness 3 cm and in the width of 20 cm we have new scaffolding wood in stock. You can choose between the natural new scaffold plank or the old made new scaffold timber. The latter variant is dipped in paint, a grey colour which imitates an old used scaffolding board. In used scaffolding wood we can never guarantee fixed lengths or quality, these are the main reasons why we do not sell used scaffolding wood.

Dried scaffold wood

There are many false myths about used scaffolding, especially that used scaffolding wood is nice and dry and that you buy stable dried used scaffolding. This is a myth. Dried scaffolding can only be offered as such if it is actually artificially dried scaffolding. Dried scaffolding wood is created when the wood is placed in a special wood drying room, the wood must then be lined up in bundles, and must then remain in this drying room for a number of days. This process of drying costs a lot of money. After all, the costs for gas and the use of the drying chamber must be paid. When wood is dried again, it is often too dry. Consequences can be that the wood starts to crack or that the wood absorbs moisture again and warps.

Spruce wood, the wood of which scaffolding boards are made, naturally dries quickly. Artificial drying of this type of wood in a drying room is unnecessary. We buy the wood at the sawmill where each layer of the wood package is battened, i.e. with small laths between the wood. By doing this, the wood can breathe and thus ventilate. By this ventilation, the wood can dry naturally, the wood has a few weeks to dry, and when you buy the wood from us, it is naturally dried scaffolding wood with the right moisture percentage.

Sanded scaffolding wood

We sell finely sawn or rough boards scaffolding wood. The making of scaffolding wood furniture is currently very popular. The beautiful robust appearance and thick scaffolding planks makes it that this application is often used. For sanded scaffold wood we do not sell, this because you would otherwise have to pay extra for this application. When building a scaffold wood furniture, it is better and cheaper to sand the wood sides you want to sand yourself. Sanded scaffolding wood can be done in different ways. Through and through sanded scaffolding wood is almost entirely sanded smooth, or do you prefer lightly sanded scaffolding wood? Make your own choice. Scaffolding wood is easy to sand and treat.

Brushed scaffold wood 

Sanded scaffolding wood does not give the same result as new or used scaffolding wood. Brushed scaffold wood has a different end result than sanded scaffold wood. The most important difference between brushed scaffold wood and sanded scaffold wood is that when sanding the wood, the sanding belt lightly flattens the wood. The surface becomes smoother when sanding and the wood feels smoother. With brushed scaffold wood, the splinter is removed but more depth is created in the wood. So the grain is slightly eroded. Brushing scaffolding wood can easily be done with a steel brush. If desired, sand it lightly with a piece of sandpaper. If you only lightly sand the scaffolding wood, you get almost the same end result. So we choose as hardhoutdiscount to sell rough wood and that you can then lightly sand the wood.

Greyed scaffolding wood

Scaffolding wood is not a very durable product, but it can last a long time if you maintain it in the right way. If you do not treat the wood, you will eventually get grey scaffolding wood. The combination of water and sun ensures that you will eventually get grey scaffolding. Greyed scaffolding is no less strong or good than un-greyed wood. It is also advisable to treat the wood if you already have greying scaffolding. Spruce wood, of which scaffolding is made, is by nature not very durable. But by painting the scaffolding wood, it can be made very durable. Tip: it is better not to put scaffolding wood furniture in too damp a place. It is important that the wind can ventilate the wood and it is best to prevent the sun from having too much influence on the scaffolding wood. Place your furniture outside in a place where it can dry easily and quickly. It is best to place them dry under a veranda or hardwood discount roof. Extend the life of scaffolding wood if you use scaffolding wood stain. Make sure that the stain is moisture regulating. The moisture regulating content of the stain is important so that the wood does not rot from the inside.

Vintage scaffolding wood

Vintage scaffolding wood is another name for used scaffolding wood. Used scaffolding wood or vintage scaffolding wood has a beautiful old look. You can buy this look by purchasing old made scaffolding boards. Old made vintage scaffolding wood has an advantage over real old scaffolding boards, that this wood is new. New wood has a longer life than already old planks. Also, old planks are often smeared with all kinds of paint and cement residue, which can rub off onto your clothes and cause extra wear and tear on your machines during processing. We have developed a product which makes it look as if you have bought old vintage scaffolding wood. While you have actually purchased new vintage scaffolding wood. The old made vintage scaffold wood planks.

Untreated scaffold wood

Freshly sawn scaffolding wood is untreated scaffolding wood. The name untreated means that no substances or paint has been applied to change the appearance of this wood. If you buy untreated scaffoldwood from us you have all the possibilities to colour the scaffoldwood to what you personally like. Do you give the untreated scaffolding a colour so that it looks like you have used scaffolding? Or do you just like the natural colour? Make the project the way you like it white.

Treated scaffolding wood

Scaffoldwood furniture can be made for both indoor and outdoor use. In terms of indoor soft furnishings, TV units, beds, cupboards and tables are often made from treated scaffold wood. Outside, scaffolding wood is mainly processed in garden furniture or fences, for example in lounge sets. All scaffolding wood furniture can be provided with a so-called white wash, grey wash, black wash or a completely opaque white appearance, so then you have treated scaffolding wood. Treated scaffold wood is made because by adding a stain, either in a colour or in clear, the life of the wood is extended. Or because in terms of appearance it gives a nice colour to the wood. We always advise to stain scaffolding wood, treated scaffolding wood has a longer life.

Ageing scaffolding wood

Or buy aged scaffolding boards from us, they look like aged scaffolding wood. Aged scaffolding wood has a nice robust appearance. Used scaffolding boards also have an aged scaffolding wood look. New aged scaffold wood is made by us by dipping new scaffold planks in a paint bath, the new scaffold planks get an aged scaffold wood look. The so-called old gray paint gives almost the same look as aged scaffold wood.

Fresh scaffold wood

Fresh scaffolding wood is scaffolding wood which has not been treated, has not turned grey and is only a few weeks old. The name fresh actually indicates that the wood is very new. Advantage of fresh scaffolding is that the wood has not been touched by anyone. There are therefore no use traces on it as with used scaffolding wood. You can make the look as you wish. The combination of old scaffold wood with a suitable new colour, makes the furniture very popular.
