Scandinavian and Baltic stocks
We buy this regularised timber from Scandinavia because it allows us to offer high quality C16 and C24 Graded Timber stock. These imported timbers grow slower than home-grown timber, offering greater stability, higher grading levels and providing a better machined finish.
Regularised and graded timber
Our imported structural timbers are kiln dried and then machine graded at the sawmills to BS4978 strength classes C16 and C24 (predominantly 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.
Timbers all pressure treated with preservative
Our timber carcassing is pressure treated with Tanalith E, or similar, timber preservative. 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 timber stocks
Large quantities of 75mm carcassing are kept in stock, pricing is competitive and enquiries are welcomed for pack quantities. Stock turn is good across most of the 75mm range, we usually keep some back-up stocks elsewhere in the Yard and replenishment from the docks normally takes 3-5 days.
Stocks normally kept in Yard for 75mm x 175mm:
75mm x 175mm at 3.6 metres
75mm x 175mm at 4.8 metres
75mm x 175mm at 6.0 metres
