What is C24 Timber?
C24 graded premium structural timber offers greater strength than C16 timber, making it a more demanding grade that can handle higher loads and wider spans.
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.
The tighter the growth rings of the wood, the better-quality piece of wood that you are dealing with.
