About Our CLS Timber and Studwork
Our environmentally certified, C24 and C16 graded framing/carcassing timber can be used for a variety of structural applications and is especially suited to framing applications.
All our framing/carcassing timber is straight, smooth and consistent in size and is available in a range of sizes and lengths.
Kiln dried to substantially reduce timber distortion
What is C24 Graded Timber?
C24 timber has been graded to a higher standard than C16. It's a premium piece of timber that can handle higher loads and wider spans. C24 grade can only be achieved by importing timber from areas where the climate forces a slower growth rate and hence a tighter grain. The tighter the growth rings of the wood, the better-quality piece of wood that you are dealing with.
It is a better-quality structural option because it can take up to 50% longer for these timbers to grow, meaning that they have more growth rings. The more growth rings a piece of wood has, the higher its overall density, which in turn means that it has greater natural durability and improved stability.
Our stud work timber is strong structural timber, ready to be used for structural framing, stud work, partitions and more. All of our timber is responsibly sourced forest-friendly timber.
For all the following applications, we generally recommend using a treated structural timber:
Roof Rafters, Timber Framing, Ceiling Joists, Floor Joists, Deck Joists
