Some Background Information
Balsa wood is a generally a very soft wood, which is known for its light weight . This makes it ideal for
making a variety of models, such as aircraft, bridges and other structures. It is technically a hardwood, however it has a density of about one third of most hardwoods. Typically it would have a density of
around 140 kg/m3 or 8.74 lb/ft3. This makes it the softest commercially available hardwood.
Our company is an industry leader in the production of balsa wood products. This is due to the use of state of the art machinery and techniques to craft each sheet to a high standard. We source our raw
material from the best producers, and this ensures that our customers get a quality product.
