Structurally graded carcassing timber is used mostly in applications such as floor joists, rafters, purlins, studwork, beams, sheds, stables, garden offices, the construction of decking areas, and elevated balconies.
Strength graded structural timbers are selected and graded by taking into consideration factors such as timber species, moisture content, knot size, content and proximity, resin pockets, fissures, splits, twist, bow, cupping, straightness and wane. Lower grade timber has a higher level of defects than better quality timber.
Pressure treatment offers a high level of protection against rot, wood boring insects, mildew and other wood decaying organisms.
