Abstract

The particleboards with different density from specially prepared particles from black locust and willow were prepared. The standard mechanical parameters of the panels were investigated, as well as the corner wall connections with eccentric connecting fitting element or confirmat strength. The screw withdrawal resistance and hinge bearing were also measured for investigated panels. The results, compared to the strength of commercial particleboards, show that excluding panels from black locust with low density, the rest of the panels can be successfully used for furniture production purposes.
