Carcassing & CLS

Carcassing & CLS Timber

Carcassing timber is a type of softwood that’s been kiln-dried. Most commonly used in the construction of timber framing and both roof and floor joists, often with a grading stamp, carcassing can also be used in a variety of internal and external applications.

Carcassing is typically used for load-bearing applications, as the name suggests for the skeleton or carcassing of a building. This type of timber was frequently rough sawn timber many years ago, but now comes with a range of surface finishes, where products such as planed timber are frequently available.

Carcassing timber can be bought either ‘unseasoned’ or ‘seasoned’, the latter of which will have usually been kiln-dried as part of its production process. This particular structural graded softwood has to be dried to contain no more than 20% moisture, which can then be stress-graded to certain strength classes.

The strength class to which the softwood timber has been graded are both C16 and C24. We stock both C16 timber and C24 timber, in a range of thicknesses and lengths.

We stock several types of softwood:

  • CLS
  • PSE
  • Sawn timber
  • Treated timber
