Description of Wimmer works ranges
Naturally growing range (standard)
This range stands for the natural image of a wooden structure that can turn out calm to vivid with branches and smaller occasional fissures.
- Wood as it grew, a look full of character, from plain to vivid and rustic
- Branches: Existing branches without limitation on number, size and form
- The natural and thus different structure showcases wood as a natural product. Planks with a particularly vivid, figured or plain structure are not eliminated.
- Colour differences in the structure therefore exist
- Colour differences in wide planks exist
- Healthy splint: allowed without restriction
- Whirl growth: allowed without restriction
- Yellowing, shallow fissures, rind ingrowth, lightning cracks, sloping grains, colour differences, vascular rays are permitted without restriction
- Healthy core desired and permitted without restriction
- Colour variations and vascular rays permitted without restriction
- Pest infestations: not permitted up to blueness, black bore and isolated wormholes
- Repairs to ensure quality, e.g. drilling branches, placing filler or wax, exists
- Cracks are filled and possible up to 100 cm
- Decreasing widths: Wimmer wide planks are essentially delivered in decreasing (different) widths, i.e. the plank widths vary from 15 to 32 cm
- Lengthwise tongue and groove
- 3-layers glued, countermove possible for other wood types
- Small, chamfers along the long edges
- Continuous surface lamellas
- Groove layer approx. 4-5 mm
- Stack pad markings not permitted
We work with nature and highlight the beauty of individual wood features. Fissures in particular shape the character of wide planks; they are not hidden but emphasised. If a branch breaks down during processing, a real branch is used from a particular size and shape.
Wood full of character with branches and fissures distinguishes a rustic range. The structure seems livelier than in the fine or natural range.
The rustic range complies with the naturally growing range with the following differences:
- Branches: many branches desired, no restriction of number, size and form
- Cracks: long cracks desired, also possible across the whole plank length
- Proportionate planks in naturally growing and fine ranges
Fine range means a peaceful image that is only occasionally pulled off of different sized branches.
The fine range complies with the naturally growing range with the following differences:
- Fewer small branches up to approx. 4 cm and only occasional large branches exist
- Splint up to a width of 1 cm allowed
- Homogenous image
