Technical characteristics of crates and materials

FERCAM crates are made out of multilayered poplar wood recommended by the American Alliance of Museums for low formaldehyde emissions in accordance with EN 1084. Multilayer wood, unlike other types of solid wood, offers a higher mechanical resistance of the product, due to the arrangement of the layers with crossed fibers. It also does not require fumigation for non-EU air shipments.
