2 inch Carcassing Timber is a natural product - variations in knots, colour, and grain should be expected - They are allowable. A certain amount of checking and splitting occurs, and is allowable in the Grading Specification; 50mm Timber can be Grade-Stamped for strength, where required.
Most sizes of 50mm Graded Carcassing timber are kiln-dried; Unseasoned 50mm timber can have a moisture content approaching the maximum saturation level of 27%, when air-dried "in-stick" this can fall to 20-23%, and if kiln-dried the moisture level is brought down to 18-20%. Generally in a heated building, the moisture level can be 8-10%, and it is here, when the moisture level of timber is rapidly changed, that twisting, warping and splitting can occur.
We keep tilt-fillet in stock and can cut firring pieces and other timber sections to size for flat-roof and pitched-roof work.
Sizes may be the usual timber nominal size that the 2 inch Carcassing Softwood is cut from, with a finished size that is generally obtained; 50mm Carcassing Timber sizes can vary ±5mm on thickness / ±10% on width, ± 50mm cross-cutting tolerance and there may be splitter saw cut-edges; This is the size immediately after machining the timber, and does not take into account any movement later, caused by moisture movement into, or out of the 50mm Construction Timber. The size, profile and other properties of Building Timber may vary from batch to batch, so it is best to purchase all you need for a job in one go, rather than buying more at a later date.
If any 50mm Graded Timber is cut or machined, then this may affect the Timber-Joist Grading, and also may cut off the Timber Grade-stamp;
