HomeDepot SelectionSt. NeotsProduct RangeTimberCarcassing

The phrase carcassing is normally used to refer to timbers processed for use in structural applications, for example; roof battens, floor joists and studwork for partition walls.

Bedford Timber Supplies carry a wide range and large quantities of carcassing timber from Sweden. These timbers are generally preferred to home grown timber because they grow slower overseas, have tighter growth rings and are a higher standard.

Timber Strength & Grading

Structural applications require carcassing timber to be marked to show they comply with the correct standards and strength that are stipulated by building codes and regulations. Imported timbers are almost always regularised, kiln dried and graded at the individual sawmills to strength classes C16 and C24.

Additionally we have a TRADA (The Timber Research and Development Association) certified grader who can grade large softwood timbers which we have machined specifically to a customer’s requirements.

All treated carcassing is pressure treated to a minimum hazard class-2 to minimize any deterioration from damp buildings or where used externally from our suppliers.

Sizes

Imported timber lengths are available from 2.4m – 6m (regularly stocked).
On sizes 47×100 and above, 7.2m lengths are available (check stock) and 8.4m lengths are available to order.
