Log imitation is the type of a facing board representing an imitation of rounded log. On each side there is a tongue-and-groove connection for easy installation, and from the back side – grooves for the removal of stress.
The basic material for the manufacture of “block-house” is a log. The log is sawn; the scheme “square in the circle” is used when cutting, i.e. the inner part of the timber goes into production of square timber or boards, and the external 4 parts – for production of log imitation.
We produce log imitation made of coniferous wood (pine, spruce) – they have a natural waterproofing in the form of a resin; this extends the service life of the log imitation.
