Geelhoutvlei Timbers mainly processes small diameter sawlogs with a maximum length of 3,0m Most of these logs are sawn into 19 and 25mm board (see below). In addition some heavier sections are sawn to be used as bearers and blocks in pallets and bins, as well as crossmembers for fencing etc. Geelhoutvlei Timbers product range is very wide. Waste products (bark, woodchip, sawdust, shavings) are all utilized in-house as boiler fuel or sold for chipboard manufacture, bio-fuel, chicken litter, growing medium and mulch. Industrial Sawn board
  • 19mm Rustic material (with bark on) is used for fencing and low cost pallets.
  • 19mm and 25mm material is kiln dried in highly sophisticated plc controlled modern drying kilns to moisture content of below 14%. Thereafter it is graded into two grades namely Non GVT (Utility grade) and GVT (Appearance grade) based on SANS 1783. These boards are used in a variety of markets inter alia, mouldings, furniture, shelving, beds, toilet seats, fencing, doors, boxes, bins and pallets.

Treatment is done in a high pressure vessel in accordance with SANS 1288 and SANS 753.
