High density sawn timber without pith, or shake but providing at least two clean adjacent faces for discerning manufacturers who prefer a more traditional solution. Kiln dried to 17% for external joinery applications in the UK and Ireland, this sawn timber helps overcome the initial swelling that can often occur when windows and doors are installed.

Advantages and benefits: is produced with a higher moisture content than typical laminated components so the potential for swelling is reduced. A bespoke kilning procedure dries the timber to 17% in order to cope with the humid conditions found in the UK and Ireland. The carefully controlled drying process results in virtually shake/split free timber. Windows and doors particularly, should function as designed, right from the day they are installed. Raising the moisture content won’t prevent swelling or shrinkage but it will help.
