Sawn Graded Timber
Softwood Building Timber - Rough Sawn or Regularised - Graded Carcassing Timber -
from JAS Timber - Walpole Street Sawmills - Blackburn BB1 1DB - Tel 01254 54000
This timber is high quality Home-grown or European Whitewood, some now being Regularised Easi-edge - ( semi-planed with eased corners ), Kiln-dried and Graded to SSC16 or SSC24 Certification, so suitable as joists, rafters and building timber, and is generally Grade-Stamped for inspection by your Building Inspector.
Normal lengths are 3.0, 3.6, 4.2 and 4.8 metres, with 5.4 and 6.0 metres in some of the larger purlin sizes;
We can also source larger sizes ( which may not be kiln-dried ), and longer lengths to order.
If required, we can machine certain items to special sizes that you may need - Please enquire - JAS Timber - Tel 01254 54000
Carcassing Timber is a natural product - variations in knots, colour, and grain should be expected - They are not defects. A certain amount of checking and splitting occurs, and is allowable in the Grading Specification; These timbers can be Grade-Stamped for strength, where required.
Smaller timber sizes are generally kiln-dried where larger timber sizes can be unseasoned or air-dried; Most 50mm and 75mm thicknesses of Graded Carcassing Timber are kiln-dried; 100mm and thicker sizes take a long time to kiln dry, and generally are offered unseasoned, and air dried "in the stick". Unseasoned 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, where the moisture level of timber is rapidly changed, that twisting, warping and splitting can and does 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 Carcassing Timber Softwood is cut from, with a finished size that is generally obtained; Up to 100mm Carcassing Timber sizes can vary ±10mm on thickness / ±20mm 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 Construction Timber. For many reasons, size, profile and other aspects 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 Graded Timber is cut or machined, then this may affect the Timber-Joist Grading, and also may cut off the Timber Grade-stamp;
Building Timber needs suitable external treatment, finishing and maintenance for exterior use. External use is at your own risk - unless we have had the timber specifically vacuum-treated for you, with a guarantee certificate.
- JAS Timber cannot be held responsible for any variations in machined Building Timber sizes, pattern, construction, grading, moisture-content, treatment, certification, knots, colour, grain or finish.
