The topic of timber can be a minefield but we are here to help you understand it better and aid you in choosing the right product to buy.

What Is C16 Timber?

C16 timber is an extremely popular choice for constructional timber in the UK. This is because it is regularised which means it provides regular dimensions and has rounded or eased edges for comfortable handling and fit.

Not only that but it has also been tested for strength and has continued to get a consistent result in its performance applications.

This type of timber is slow grown and is kiln dried to minimize the amount of moisture in the wood. Drying it in this way ensures there is no more than 20% of moisture in the wood which helps keep it in keeping with the relevant building regulations. C16 timber is one of the gradings of what is known as carcassing timber.

Why Choose C16 Timber?

We know that timber can be a confusing product to understand and buy and you might not know why a specific type of timber is better than others. As mentioned above, it is a very popular choice for constructional timber due to it being strong and durable as well as comfortable to handle and fit. It provides consistent results and is very affordable too. It is the most widely used timber in the UK for a reason and the softwood timber comes from sustainable forests.

The timber is extremely high quality and is untreated but stress graded for strength. It has multiple qualities which make it perfect for construction including density, bending and compression. Many people choose this timber because of how versatile it is. Its eased edge uniform finish looks good but the timber tends to be used in an area that will not be seen.

You can rest assured that our entire range of C16 timber has all been stress graded and will ensure a good quality and effective piece of construction.

Where Would I Use C16 Timber?
If you are wondering whether C16 graded structural timber is the right type of timber for your project, then it can be used in many different applications and is seen as the most cost-effective option.

It is most commonly used in internal construction including floors, roofs, and minor building works where the performance of the timber matters. Preferably it would be used in an area that is not subject to wetting or moisture on a regular basis. This eased edge timber looks good and is strong and durable which makes it the perfect choice for internal construction.

Other uses include deck joists and other garden buildings however it is important to remember that C16 is considered the minimum standard for decks above 600mm in height.
