DPR is supplied in three grades

Supplier: DPR Hardwood
11 October, 2010

DPR is not supplied to furniture grade specifications.

  • F14 Graded for strength, not good looks
  • F17 Graded for strength, not good looks**
  • Appearance Grade Graded for its lack of natural characteristics***

**F17 is stronger than F14, however 98% of the F17 spans can be substituted with F14, which means substantial savings. Ask your Architect or designer to apply the DPR span tables to your project for maximum value.

***Appearance grade excludes natural characteristics such as gum vein, loose knots, grub and insect holes. A rule of thumb is "if you can't see any defect after you paint it then it's appearance grade"
