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.
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
