Home grown product 75mm sawn tanalised timber
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 intended for structural applications because they grow quickly in UK forests. Although referred to as 25mm carcassing the finished thickness is almost always 22mm. These 75mm width sawn tanalised timbers are supplied at 3.6 metre lengths. The grade allows for some wane on the boards, if you need a smoother, less rustic finish then try the planed timbers 25 x 75 pse
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. There are likely to be colour variations 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. Because the redwood is planed it will finish at 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. This will provide more protection to the top of the boards. The sawn 100mm width boards can also be used for “hit and miss” fences. Gates can also be made to match this style of fence.
