Structural Hardwood Plywood sheets

Our structural grade hardwood plywood is manufactured using a eucalyptus core. Eucalyptus hardwood plywood is strong and resistant to rot while being more affordable than other types of hardwood. The panel is faced on both sided with a mixed red hardwood backing veneer.

Red hardwood is resistant to rot and insect damage. As the name suggests, structural hardwood plywood is a strong and robust choice for load-bearing applications, interior flooring and more. While structural hardwood can be used for external applications if it is properly sealed, we would recommend using marine grade plywood wherever the material may be exposed to high levels of damp or weather.

Hardwood Plywood cut to size

Save yourself the hassle of cutting plywood yourself with our cut to size service. We can cut your hardwood plywood board to custom shapes and dimensions, and can also add custom cutouts as well.

Hardwood Plywood thickness

We offer several thickness options for our hardwood plywood, ranging from 5.5mm to 18mm. When choosing your thickness, consider how your plywood will be used. Thicker sheets are better for load-bearing applications, while thinner sheets are a lightweight option for cladding or decorative use. Thicknesses available: 5.5mm, 9mm, 12mm, 18mm.

Softwood VS Hardwood Plywood

Hardwood plywood is stronger and more head-wearing than softwood plywood, such as Elliotis Plywood. Hardwood plywood also tends to be heavier. Hardwood plywood is also more resistant to warping. However, since softwoods are easier to source, softwood plywood tends to be cheaper. When deciding between hardwood or softwood plywood, consider what kind of capabilities or durability you need.

Hardwood Plywood FAQs

Can hardwood plywood be used outside?

Hardwood plywood is suitable for external use, providing that all the edges are effectively sealed. This will prevent damp from getting into the material and damaging it. It will withstand being outside better than softwood plywood. However, for long-lasting external use we would suggest our marine grade plywood, which has superior water resistant properties.

Can you paint Hardwood Plywood?

All plywood can be painted, just be sure to adequately prime or seal the plywood before applying paint. Plywood absorbs a lot of paint, so it is important to prepare the surface first for a professional finish. If your project will be outside, make sure you choose a suitable paint for exterior use.

Is Hardwood Plywood waterproof

Hardwood plywood is water resistant, but not completely waterproof.
