Timber has been the traditional material for Shop front construction for many years.
Traditionally, the timbers used were teak, oak, black walnut and mahogany, chosen for their aesthetic as well as practical qualities. Nowadays, although there is a vast range of timbers available for shop front joinery, it is still imperative that specifiers are aware of the properties of the timber and its durability.
The durability of the timber chosen will also depend on the aspect of the shop fronts and the finish applied to the timber. It is also necessary to apply preservatives to some timbers, such as plywood, or surfaces which are to be painted.
A suitable grade of plywood for exterior use must always be specified when used in the construction of stall risers or other components of the shop front.
