Our large stock of Treated Timber is the perfect structural material for a variety of building applications, such as roof and floor joists, partitions and timber framing. Along with this, our Treated Timber is both EN14081-2 and FSC Certified, making it perfectly suitable for both indoor and outdoor projects.
As well as our timber receiving the highest quality treatment, we sourced the highest quality Scandinavian Whitewood Spruce, a slow growing tree that produces tight growth rings, leaving the finished timber with an extremely high level of stability and a premium finish. The process of manufacturing the timber is extremely environmentally friendly, with all of the wood being responsibly sourced. The timber then gets kiln-dried and treated, to ensure maximum protection against all forms of decay.
Our Treated Timber is available in a variety of sizes and lengths. However, we can also cut any Timber to your required length or pack together as many pieces as you require, just select the custom cut of your choice when purchasing.
