Dunnage

BRE (Building Research Establishment) is an independent, research-based consultancy, testing and training organisation, operating in the built environment and associated industries. A guide to the use of urban timber (FB 50) was written by Geoff Cooper and published by BRE on 31 July 2012.

The guide defines 'dunnage' as:

Waste wood material usually sawn into uniform squares of a given length and used to raise packs of sawn timber off the ground to allow fork-lift access. Dunnage is also used to separate packs of timber in the kiln-drying process.
