The name Binder stands for tradition awareness and innovation in the wood industry. Franz Binder senior turned his passion for wood into a profession in the 1950s and founded a sawmill business in the Zillertal.

Even today, the Binder family stands behind the brand name binderholz. Passion for the sustainable raw material wood still drives the family and the employees of binderholz today.

Historie Sägewerk


We use exclusively European wood from sustainable forestry. Wood species such as spruce, fir, Douglas fir and pine have individual properties that distinguish them for various applications.

Holzart Fichte


Colour: yellowish-white, darkens to yellowish-brown in light
Structure: annual ring structure is clearly visible 
Characteristics: good strength and elasticity properties
Field of application: particularly well suited as profile, structural and construction wood

Holzart Tanne


Colour: yellowish-white with grey-violet to blue shimmer, darkens in the light
Structure: without resin channels
Characteristics: many parallels to the wood of the spruce
Field of application: decorative interior design

Holzart Douglasie


Colour: dark yellow-reddish, darkens to brown-red in light
Structure: differentiation of sapwood and heartwood is clearly visible
Characteristics: Heartwood is particularly resistant and durable
Field of application: in decorative interior and exterior finish

Holzart Kiefer


Colour: dark yellow to reddish-brown
Structure: distinctive branchiness and characteristic annual ring structure
Characteristics: good strength and elasticity properties
Field of application: construction wood; with modern boiler pressure impregnation well suited for outdoor use

We process pine wood from twovery special growth areas: the Mark Bandenburg pine, which grows on the barren sandy soils of Brandenburg, and the Northern pine from the area around our Finnish locations. It grows in extremely cold weather ner the Arctic Circle. These growing conditions cause the trees to grow very slowly. The wood becomes finer, more small-scale, has a higher raw density and thus a high stability, load-bearing capacity and attractiveness.

Holzart Thermokiefer


If you prefer European wood types to the tropical ones and at the same time place high demands on durability and aesthetics, our thermopine is the right choice for you.
Through a purely thermal process, the physical and chemical properties of the wood are changed using heat and steam. The wood becomes weather-resistant, it hardly swells and shrinks. This all is achieved without the use of chemicals. Our thermal pine is very suitable for outdoor use.


  • durability class 2 (durable)
  • weatherproof
  • without chemical additives
  • resin-free
  • dimensionally stable
  • very good to work on
  • recyclable
  • quickly builds up a grey patina, but the brown hue can be maintained easily by the use of wood oil


The wood for our products comes from sustainable, European forestry. We meet the strict PEFC standards – from the raw materials to the finished product in the building supplies store. With our subsidiary TTW Waldpflege we are already active in the forest. We are committed to the conservation of timber and to the preservation of native forests.

And that is not all. The use of wood as a building material is a contribution to climate protection. This is because solid wood products store CO2 previously extracted from the atmosphere, for decades. At the same time, conventional building materials are being replaced, for which fossil fuels would otherwise be used in production.

Working with wood is therefore active climate protection.

Zero Waste

The conscious handling of the raw material wood is particularly important to us. In addition to our sawn timber and further processed products, 100% of the by-products of sawing are also used. Wood chips, wood shavings and sawdust are turned into biofuels, pallet blocks and pallets. And the bark is used as an energy source in our company's own heating centres.

Completely environmentally friendly. And total value utilisation according to the zero-waste principle.

100% use of wood as a raw material based on a zero waste principle


Wood thrives on numerous individual characteristics that reflect its organic origin. Some distinctive features for the natural product wood are:

Grain and branches

Grain and branches vary from wood to wood and from tree to tree. They are not a sign of inferior quality, but the fingerprint of every tree. And just as individual and variable as any human fingerprint. 


The natural colouring still changes after processing. UV irradiation causes natural colour changes over time. If the wood is exposed to the weather, greying occurs.

Dry cracks

Dry cracks and warping are caused by different densities and wood structures. They are generally permitted and are not subject to any restrictions in terms of width, length and depth. They do not affect the static properties or the strength of the wood. 

Swelling & shrinkage

Swelling and shrinkage occurs due to moisture absorption and moisture release of the wood. This affects the volume. People say that "wood works". When planning, it is important to take account of these natural fluctuations.

Resin bleeding

Resin bleeding is a natural feature of conifers. Removing resin is easy: By carefully scraping and grinding the surfaces, the visible traces of resin can be easily eliminated.

Blue stain

In warm and humid climate conditions, wood can be infested with blue stain. This is not damage the wood, but merely is an optical change.

Rough spots

Rough spots in the wood are sometimes unavoidable due to wood fibres that run in the opposite direction. That's why we always pay attention to a particularly gentle processing. Nevertheless, unequal, rough spots are sometimes unavoidable in the case of chop cuts.

Salt efflorescence

Salt efflorescence develops in impregnated wood. Copper salts penetrate deep into the wood to protect it against mould and insect infestation. There may be harmless colour deposits on the surface. This is only resin, which was dyed by the salts.
