Covid-19 - 07/03/2021 - Just a note to say iWood Timber will remain open again through this lockdown as we supply the construction industry.
We're currently experiencing a high volume of orders, and with Covid restrictions in place,
we're currently working to a lead time of 14-28 working days
(some products have longer lead times as described in their individual descriptions).
Durability is a measurement of how long specific species of timber would last if a 50mm x 50mm cross section was left in the ground unprotected.
An untreated Oak beam
, which is classed as 'durable', for example, will last 15-25 years depending on environmental conditions.
The following scale of durability was outlined by TRADA, the Timber Research And Development Association.
||Average timber service life
||less than 5 years
||more than 25 years
