Moisture Content

Moisture content is a critical property of seasoned timber.

We can usually provide timber with an average moisture content of +/- one percent. This will ensure minimal movement in a given environment.

If required solar kilns are used to achieve small adjustments to moisture content. It is difficult for us to supply moisture content of less than 10 percent as this is well below east coast equilibrium.

 

Durability Ratings

A variety of class 1 and class 2 materials are available for external use. Internally, durability is not really an issue unless termite attack is possible.

Strength Ratings

Typically, we are requested to supply timbers with strength ratings from F17 to F27. We are able to supply strength ratings from F14 through to F34 and higher, if required.

We can also provide advice about the best species to use to obtain your required strength and stiffness.
