When choosing wood for building materials or façade, the purpose of the work must be considered because the performance of each type of wood is different from others. Wood profiles are one of the most widely used materials in the woodworking industry, which entered the market in 1973 and was able to occupy a special place in Europe and the United States.
Carpenters and activists in the wood industry always pay attention that to make any item, specific materials must be used to increase the efficiency of that device. In this article, we will introduce wooden profiles, their types and applications.
What is Wooden Profile?
You must have seen rectangular woods, but the edges are not sharp and with a special cut, the corners are angled in a way to remove the sharpness of the wood. This kind of wood is called a wooden profile. To make wooden profiles, woods such as oak are mainly used. Although the manufacture of wood profiles began in 1973, these woods were officially recognized in 1991 as one of the most important export materials in North America and Europe and became a major trade.

Steps of Producing Wooden Profiles
But now let’s answer the question, how is a wooden profile produced?
- In the first step, it is necessary to prepare the required wood. As mentioned, to make wooden profiles, they mainly go for European oak or even beech wood.
- In the next stage, cutting will begin. If you look at the shape of wooden profiles, you will notice that the profiles do not have an angle for installation. So with the machine, they make several very small cuts inside the wood.
- Finally, the four sides of the wood are grated completely and evenly.
- In the last step, the profile will be covered by veneers and packed.
There are different types of wood profiles on the market that differ in terms of wood and veneer material. Therefore, based on your work purpose, you should use appropriate profiles.
The Most Important Applications of Wood Profiles
Based on the wood used to make the profiles, their thickness and, of course, their appearance, they are used in various places such as doors, windows and even the baseboards. Wood profiles have different qualities and materials. For example, Plast wood profiles are a combination of natural wood fibers as well as plastics that are used as flooring, wall coverings and dropped ceilings, the exterior of the building and even for roofing fences.
Another type of wood profile is the MDF profile, which has veneers on it and these veneers are made of different materials. For example, the best covering in MDF profile is PVC, which has very high durability and will not be damaged or scratched by impact. PVC, in addition, is more beautiful because it looks shiny and uniform. MDF profiles are mainly used to build cabinets in the kitchen. These profiles are obtained from dry wood fibers and after processing, including veneer, pressure and the use of binders, are converted into wood parts.
