Structural timber, sometimes referred to as carcassing timber, is traditionally used to refer to timbers machined for use in structural applications, such as roof battens, floor joists and studwork for partitioned walls. Structural or carcassing timbers are typically machined to specific dimensions and fire or pressure treated according to their planned usage within a building.
Our stocks are predominantly imported from Scandinavia and graded to at least C16 although the majority is graded C24. From 47 x 50mm up to 75 x 225mm, all sizes have been regularised and eased edged to provide you with a superior product which ensures ease of handling compared to normal sawn softwood The term “eased edge” refers to the timber being semi surfaced and finished to a uniform, relatively smooth dimension with 4 radiused corners to minimise the risk of splinters. Sizes are generally 2mm below thickness and 5mm below width. E.g. a 47x100mm will be 45x95mm actual size. We do stock unseasoned carcassing which is full to size in a variety of sections.
If your requirements are particularly large in section or long in length we will be only too happy to get you a quote and lead time. If you have any odd sizes which aren’t a stock item we can offer a cutting service where we can supply timber to a particular width or depth. We do have a trade accredited visual grader on site should the timber we alter need re-grading. We can also cut firrings and angle fillets.
We keep all our structural timber stock undercover. This reduces the effect the environment can have on it and limits the chance of splitting, cupping and bending.
All of our carcassing stocks are from sustainable sources.
