Timber banding

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 gives the following definition of ‘banding’:

After a pack or parcel of timber is dried, the pack is normally held together for storage or transportation using plastic, metal or nylon strips held together with friction lips. The application of these strips is known as banding.
