It is important to buy wooden office furniture
When buying wooden office furniture, most people only look at the style and the board, and they are ignorant or indifferent to other details about the quality of office furniture. In fact, when purchasing wooden office furniture, especially solid wood office furniture, the moisture content of the wood, the processing of the paint film, and the connection of the tenon structure should be paid more attention to. Especially when you choose off-site wood, it should be said that the moisture content of wood has a great relationship with the inherent quality of office furniture.
Moisture is not intuitive but important
Some consumers report that cracking has occurred in their solid wood flooring for less than a year. However, they usually pay attention to protection. How can such a phenomenon occur? In fact, not only solid wood floors, but also some solid wood office furniture, doors and windows, and so on, and the most direct cause of this phenomenon is the moisture content of wood.
Under normal circumstances, the wood itself contains a certain amount of moisture, so it is well known that it is dried before making office furniture. However, drying must follow certain standards, even if the moisture content of office furniture materials Consistent with the average moisture content of the atmosphere in the area of use. When purchasing wooden office furniture, especially solid wood office furniture, it is difficult for consumers to know whether the wooden office furniture has reached the required standard without a professional detector. However, we cannot ignore the importance of moisture content because it cannot be intuitively reflected.
Due to different geographical locations, the average moisture content in the atmosphere will be different. Therefore, different regions have different requirements for the moisture content of wooden office furniture. For example, the average moisture content of air in Beijing is 11.4%, while the southern region is 14 %, The specific requirements for office furniture is between the local average moisture content of plus or minus 1, Li Jiguang told reporters. The moisture content directly affects the quality and use of wooden office furniture, especially solid wood office furniture. Wood with a low moisture content will absorb moisture in the air, causing the office furniture to swell and deform. However, if the moisture content is high, the office furniture will face cracking. Danger. Generally speaking, the moisture content of wooden office furniture, especially solid wood office furniture, is preferably lower than the average moisture content of the local air, for example, one to two percentage points. In the Beijing market, there are many products of wood from the south, or they are directly produced in the south and then shipped over. It is conceivable that the air in the south is wetter than the north, and the moisture content of the wood there is higher than the north, so the south Wooden office furniture, especially solid wood office furniture, and wood must be treated with strict moisture drainage. There are two problems in this, one is the requirements of construction technology, and the other is the cost. If the two aspects are not coordinated in the end, If the effective treatment of moisture content can be guaranteed, wooden office furniture in the south is indeed more prone to problems in the northern environment.
Selecting wooden office furniture starts with the details
Although the moisture content of wood is measured by a tester, consumers can still test it by some simple methods. Li Jiguang said that consumers can touch the surface of wooden office furniture with their hands. Cold feeling, indicating that the moisture content of office furniture may be high. However, because consumers see samples placed in the store for a certain period of time, the moisture content is mostly close to equilibrium, so if the moisture content of office furniture is not assured, new office furniture must still be measured by a professional detector. of.
In addition to the moisture content, Li Jiguang told reporters that other details need to be paid attention to when purchasing wooden office furniture.
The first is the tenon structure of office furniture. For example, the table can be shaken by hand to see if it is stable. The sofa should be seated and shaken. If it is inactive, soft and silent, it means that the tenon structure is relatively firm. Secondly, when buying wooden office furniture, don't just look at the smooth paint on the surface, but also touch whether the coating is thick. If the paint film is too thin, the heat resistance and scratch resistance of office furniture will decrease. In addition, pay attention to the paint film at the corners. The corners cannot be right-angled. The door of the office furniture should also be painted with a paint. The unpainted sheet is easy to bend and unattractive.
In addition, check whether the veneer of office furniture is flat and look at the light. It may not be easy to see if it is not light. And the edge is not flat, indicating that the internal material may be wet, and the edge may fall off within a few days. Edge banding should also be rounded, not right-angled. Edges sealed with wooden strips are prone to moisture and cracking.
