OUR PHILOSOPHY

environmentally friendly and resource-saving

Our philosophy

ferdinand_schneider.jpg
Ferdinand Schneider, Managing director

We all know that wood is sustainable. The fact that it is only available in limited quantities and that we need to ensure that sensible value creation of wood as a raw material takes place is now also widely known.

In its closed operational cycle, best wood SCHNEIDER® GmbH ensures that all possible facets of the value creation chain from round wood in the forest via its processing in a sawmill to the end of the lifecycle are utilized.

As a medium-sized company which sells ecological products, we make sure that we have an energy-efficient process. We have therefore faced up to our responsibility to society and certified our company in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001.

The natureplus® seal and the extremely good values which have been recorded in the EPD (Environmental Product Declaration), are evidence of an environmentally aware manufacturing process.

Energy-efficient production at best wood SCHNEIDER®

Our production is energy-efficient: From round wood to wood fiber insulation board, plus all of the energy requirements, everything comes from one manufacturing plant!

Sawmill

Our sawmill is the basis for an ecological production cycle which is unique within the wood industry and extremely resource-conserving.

This is where the round wood for KVH and glued laminated timber is cut to size. The sawdust and the bark are taken to the biomass combined heating and power plant as fuel.

The woodchips, on the other hand, go into wood fiber production. In this way we can recycle all of our production residue in a way that adds value.

Production of GLULAM, CLT and KVH®

When it leaves the sawmill, the sawn timber goes into several different glued laminated timber, CLT and KVH lines. This is where we produce all of the statically relevant wood products for modern wood construction. Any wood shavings which are produced are also taken to the biomass combined heating and power plant.

Biopower

best wood Schneider Biopower

The biomass combined heating and power plant is fuelled with bark and sawdust, and therefore generates the process heat that is needed for wood fiber production in an environmentally friendly way.

The office building and a district heating network are also fed with the heat and electrical power that are produced as a sideline.

Defibration

The wood fibers are the starting material for the manufacture of wood fiber insulation boards. The wood chips are de-fibred in the refiner and are then transferred to the wood fiber production building via the blowline.

Production of wood fiber insulation boards

DSC_0836.jpg

We produce our best wood SCHNEIDER® WOOD FIBER INSULATION BOARDS in what is currently the most state-of-the-art production facility for flexible and rigid wood fiber insulation boards. The finished best wood SCHNEIDER® WOOD FIBER INSULATION BOARDS are manufactured from the wood chips on a continuous production line using an energy-saving drying process.

Certification

Our companies, best wood SCHNEIDER® GmbH, and Holzwerk Gebr. Schneider GmbH, are certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50 001.

Certified!

Our best wood wood fibre boards have the following certifications.

natureplus is the international quality label for sustainable home and construction products, tested for environment, health and function.

The natureplus® quality label stands for health tolerability, environmentally sound and energy-efficient production, protection of finite resources and fitness for purpose. Products with this label predominantly comprise renewable or naturepreserving raw materials. Demanding independent tests and the strictest marginal values across Europe for substance raising health concerns guarantee the harmlessness of the certified products.

PEFC is a transparent and independent system for securing a sustainable forest management and thus a worldwide “Forest TÜV”. The forest certificate according to the standards of PEFC is based on very strict regulations for the sustainable management of forests. This management is monitored by competent and independent organizations.

EPDs form the data basis for an environmental building assessment. They are based on international standards like the European DIN EN 15804, and are therefore internationally coordinated. They are suitable as proof of environmental requirements in public procurement processes. EPDs provide a relevant data basis to show the environmental characteristics of a product in marketing or sales

With the CE label, we confirm as manufacturers that our best wood wood fibre insulation material conform to the product-specific applicable European guidelines of the European Union.

www.ce-zeichen.de

The Ü label (conformity label) labels construction products that conform to the relevant technical regulations, building authority approval, building authority test certificate or approval in individual cases.

KEYMARK is the European certification label that documents the conformity of products with European standards.

Material guarantee deposited at the ZVDH. Only the expert processing of impeccable materials guarantees real customer satisfaction. The ZVDH has developed for this very reason the material guarantees together with reputable partners in the roofing industry. We offer companies in the guild protection in the event of material complaints by depositing manufactures an extensive guarantee for our products.
