Treated batons are either tanalised or vac vac treated, depending on application……please ask. White wood soft falling is a general quality deal not joinery quality. Easy edge is as CLS but better quality.

Treated or Untreated?

Carcassing timber can be either treated or untreated. Treated timber is a popular choice, since it offers superior strength and increased protection against fungus and rot. This means lower maintenance demands for you, and a longer life for your wood. But the type of treatment depends on exactly what you’re using the wood for – an outdoor project might require waterproofing, whereas indoor construction might be better served by a different treatment. We offer two different treatment options – Tanalising and VacVac – so you can choose the one that best suits your project.

Graded or Ungraded?

The process of grading timber involves drying it in a kiln, which removes excess moisture and enhances the wood’s durability and strength. This makes graded timber suitable for load-bearing uses where ungraded wood might not be up to the job. Graded timber comes in a variety of strength classes, which are determined by careful testing of the wood. If you’re not sure which is best for you, get in touch and we can help.
