Solid Seasoned Hardwood
Seasoning refers to the process of removing moisture from timber or drying timber. Solid seasoned hardwood timber tends to have a superior dimensional stability to unseasoned hardwood timber and is much less prone to warping and splitting. Seasoning hardwood timber enhances the basic properties of the timber increasing the stiffness, bending strength and compression strength.
Solid seasoned hardwood should be used for indoor applications where shrinkage associated with hardwood drying out is important.
Ideal for all structural applications including sub-floor construction, stair components, highly loaded truss members, wall lintels over openings and high strength structural beams.
- Hanging beams
- Floor bears and joists
- Strutting beams
- Window heads and lintels
- Ceiling joists
