Lightness: poplar has a lower specific weight (380 kg/m3) than fir (450 kg/m3), birch (650 kg/m3) and most woods used for panel production.
Clarity and homogeneity: poplar, in contrast to other woods, allows to obtain large-sized, light-coloured, and almost homogeneous veneers.
Ease of processing: poplar is a soft-pulp wood. This characteristic makes it easy to work and limits tool wear.

Environmental advantages Derula
Environmental advantages

Poplar cultivation requires a minimum use of fertilisers compared to other agricultural crops and therefore does not impoverish the biological quality of the soil and does not cause groundwater pollution.

Poplar can distil water, absorbing it from the soil to returning it pure, by transpiration, to the atmosphere.

Poplar counteracts the greenhouse effect and global climate change. A traditional poplar plantation with a 10-year rotation can absorb 4.9 to 5.5 tonnes of carbon per hectare per year and return as much in oxygen.


At the origin of the high-quality standards of Derula products there is not only a great work organisation that knows how to offer the ability to listen to anticipate the needs of an extremely dynamic market.
At Derula there is know-how based on the experience of extraordinary people. There is no technology that can replace the look and touch of those who carry out quality controls during all the production processes every day, from the arrival of raw materials to the tests carried out in the internal laboratory, from the selection of the veeners to the control of the finished products before shipment.
