Softwood

Engineered Softwood

Softwood is widely used in construction, joinery, furniture, garden products and other applications and has proven to be a successful and competitive material for many centuries. However, in recent years it has become apparent that engineering this versatile raw-material can improve and enhance its characteristics and performance. Engineering the timber at source can provide the perfect solution by eliminating unwanted natural characteristics, such as knots or splits and greatly enhancing the stability.

Applications

We can offer engineered softwood for windows, doors, staircases, door linings (fire tested), playground equipment and many other uses. We hold a standard range of laminated squares in stock suitable for use as newel posts, playgrounds and porch posts, and suitable for preservative pressure treatment. All other dimensions are imported to order to precisely meet the customer’s requirements.

Stock dimensions

  94 x 94            Lengths 3.0m,  4.2m,  5.4m

140 x 140          Lengths 3.0m,  4.2m,  5.4m

 

Production capability

We are working closely with specialist European sawmills and manufactures, using modern high-tech equipment to provide fit for purpose products for a variety of end uses. Using computer controlled camera grading equipment, it is possible to grade raw material to suit the customer's end use perfectly. We can supply solid components, precision cut to length and machined to profile. Timber can be finger jointed in length and laminated in thickness and width. Further processes such as drilling, notching and shaping can also be added.

Sustainability

All of our Softwood is sourced from well managed sustainable forest and comes with full PEFC or FSC chain of custody certification.
