Sawn carcassing timber is a term used to describe timber that has been sawn and prepared for use in construction applications. This type of timber is typically made from softwood species such as pine, spruce, and fir, and is commonly used in structural applications where strength and durability are important.
The most common uses for sawn carcassing timber include:
- Timber framing: Sawn timber is often used in the construction of timber-framed buildings. This involves using large pieces of timber to create the structure of the building, which is then filled in with other materials such as brick or stone.
- Roof construction: Sawn carcassing timber is also commonly used in the construction of roofs, where it is used to create the roof trusses that support the weight of the roof. Check our range of sawn timber here, and battens here.
- Floor construction: Similarly, sawn carcassing timber is often used in the construction of floors, where it is used to create floor joists that support the weight of the floor and the people and objects on it. Timber comes into its own in these applications due to its low cost and reliability.
- Fencing: Sawn carcassing timber is a popular choice for fencing applications, where it is used to create fence posts, rails, and boards which have been pressure treated beforehand. Making some of the best-looking and longest-lasting fences money can buy.
In all of these applications, sawn carcassing timber provides a strong and durable material that can withstand the weight and stresses of construction and use. It is also relatively easy to work with and can be cut, drilled, and shaped to fit specific requirements. We stock a wide range of sizes and lengths to suit any job or requirement.
