Home/Timbers/Teak/Teak FEQ

Teak FEQ (First European Quality) is a quality indicator for teak. Teak FEQ is sorted on wood that does not contain sapwood, knots and wormholes. The teak FEQ is heart free sawn and is mixed-grain.  Teak FEQ is for many purposes applicable, however less applicable for straight grain purposes. For this purpose, Worldwood imports special quarter sawn teak wood. See also Teak Quarter Sawn

Before shipping to the Netherlands, one of our employees will check whether the teak meets our quality standards. Worldwood has opportunities for a project-oriented approach to purchasing, processing and storage.

The height and diameter of the teak trees are highly dependent on the growing place and soil conditions. Teak trees with a height of 40-45 m, with diameters up to 1.80 to 2.40 m are common in Myanmar / Burma. These large trees are free of branches up to 25-27 m.
In general Worldwood prefers a natural seasoning process of teak, which is also the case in most cases. However, in some cases there is no time for a natural seasoning process and we use one of our three kilns.\r\n\r\nWorldwood ensures that, during seasoning process in one of the drying chambers, no type of wood is mixed with a different type of wood, in order to avoid staining problems. Employees of Worldwood are experienced and qualified to to give the teak the special treatment it deserves.
