Home grown product
Most 25mm timber carcassing is home grown, it is normally used for cladding or fencing applications, with no need for regularising or grading of timber. The timbers used are not best suited to structural applications because they grow quickly in the forests of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and even Cornwall. Although it is referred to as 25mm carcassing the finished thickness is almost always 22mm. The 75mm sawn tanalised timber is supplied at 3.6 metre lengths. The grade allows for some wane on the boards, if you need a perfectly square timber, something less rustic, then please check the planed timbers
Sawn and pressure treated timber
All of our 22mm timbers are pressure treated with Tanalith E, or similar, timber preservative. These timbers are intended for use above the ground layer but where the timber may be subjected to the risk of wetting. It is strongly recommended that any cross cuts are treated with two coats of Ensele end-grain preservative treatment.
The timber will be unspecified softwood, most usually Sitka spruce, and there may be colour variation between boards even from the same pack. It is conceivable that some boards will have some wane on the board edges, that is perfectly normal within the specification. If a more contemporary finish is required then we also stock plane Scandinavian redwood available with a finish of approximately 70mm x 20mm.
Pales and fencing materials
The 75mm widths are often used for paling applications. They are stocked at 3.6 metres which means they can be cut to 600mm, 900mm, 1200mm and 1800mm lengths with minimal waste. As well as treating the cut ends with Ensele it may be worth using a sawn length of timber as a capping board to provide more protection to the top of the boards. The 100mm width boards have always been popular for “hit and miss” fences so 1.8 metres boards were sourced for this application. Gates can also be made to match this style of fence.
