Scandinavian grown Large Timber Stocks
Firstly, we have been buying large timber stocks from Scandinavia for most of our existence. Our most popular timber sizes are 47 x 150mm and 47 x 100mm. Because these imported timbers grow slower than home-grown timber they offer greater stability, higher grading levels and providing a better machined finish. Large stocks of 47mm structural timber are maintained in our Devon yard
C24 Graded Stock
Our imported structural timbers are kiln dried and then machine graded at the sawmills to BS4978 strength class C24. We purchase packs of regularised timber, the timbers within each pack having consistent dimensions and a smoother planed finish than traditional sawn carcassing. Most regularised timber has “eased” edges, the machining processing means that the nominal sizes are reduced by approx. 2mm off the depth and 5mm off the width of the timber.
Pressure Treated with Preservative
Our timber carcassing is pressure treated with Tanalith E, or similar, timber preservative. Therefore these timbers are intended for use above the ground DPC but where the timber may be subjected to the risk of occasional wetting. All cut ends should be resealed with the appropriate end-treatment, e.g. Ensele should be used on any Tanalith E timbers. Full packs of untreated timber can be ordered from the docks if required.
Large quantities of 47mm carcassing are kept in stock, pricing is competitive and enquiries are welcomed for pack quantities. because our stock turn is good we keep back-up stocks elsewhere in the Yard and replenishment from the docks normally takes 3-5 days.
