- 14/07/2020 - Everyone at iWood would like to thank you for your continued support during the pandemic.
As more of our customers have started coming back to work we have seen an influx of orders. As such we are currently working to a lead time of 14-28 working days (some products have longer lead times as described in their individual descriptions). We are still following government guidelines to keep our staff and customers safe.
We are now selling a variety of marine timbers which are all highly durable and suitable for marine environments like locks, marinas, docks and bridges. These monstrous
timbers are larger and more durable than most of their European counterparts and require little or no treatment at all.
Due to their natural hardness a lot of our marine timbers are resistant to rot and infestation naturally. This is what makes them ideal for being in constant contact with
water as lock gates and bridge pillars. They are also heavily involved in boat building for both the hull and decking.
Our Marine Timber are all highly sort after, so we need to check availability before ordering which is why we ask for a cutting list rather than allowing you to price and
buy online. If you can’t find the timber you are looking for, let us know and we’ll see if we can source it for you.
