The softwood species we use are typically Norway Spruce (Picea Abies) and Scots Pine (Pinus Sylvestris).  A small proportion of European Larch (Larix Decidua) can be present. The majority of our sawn product is pre-dimensioned from our supplying mills, although we do produce some re-sawn dimensions through our small milling facility.  We are therefore able to optimise some of our dimensions and reduce waste, which helps us to keep our prices competitive.
Our nails are serrated shank, galvanised and the nailing configurations ensure that panel construction offers good stability and integrity.
