Product Description

Have all of your construction needs met with 4.8m 47mm x 75mm 3 x 2 timber. Otherwise known as 47x75 timber, 3 x 2 is the ideal framework for your next project.

Suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications such as roofing, flooring and wall applications, 4.8m 3x2 timber provides many benefits, namely protection from the elements, promising longevity and low maintenance.

Here at Materials Market, we offer high-quality timber, sawn to the necessary length and pressure-treated to prevent fungal and insect attack.

We sell 3 x 2 stud timber in various lengths such as 3m, 3.6m and 4.8m - all of which can be trimmed to whichever length your project requires. 


47mm x 75mm 3x2 Timber 4.8m Applications

Here at Materials Market, all of our timber available to buy online is treated with preservatives, kiln dried, and then planed all around to give it easier-to-handle eased edges.

In the building sector, good quality pressure-treated timber is popular as it provides many benefits, namely protection from the elements. 

Thanks to the treatment of the timber, 47x75 timber is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications such as roofing, flooring and wall applications. 

3 x 2 timber lengths are used for the most part in stud wall partitions, where they provide both the horizontal and vertical sections of a stud wall.

A few examples of how 47x75 timber can be used are:

  • In roof and flooring joists
  • As part of a building structure's timber frame
  • Outdoor decking (due to its durability and moisture resistance)
  • Outdoor frames and pergolas 
  • Fencing
  • Garden sheds and garden furniture

Please note: 3 x 2 is a non-structural timber size, which means that it shouldn't be relied upon to support the building structure.

What is 3x2 Timber In mm?

3 x 2 timber is most often measured in inches, which is an imperial measurement, though it is sometimes measured in metric and this is where millimetres (mm) come into play.

3x2 is considered to be 50x75mm or 47x75mm. This discrepancy is accounted for by the way the wood is cut and prepared.

On our website, we sell 75mm x 47mm but the difference in the actual size is minuscule and will not make a meaningful difference to your project.


Pressure Treated Timber Benefits

The goal of pressure treating wood is to force preservative chemicals deep into the timber's cellular structure.

This pressure treatment process will often include copper and organic co-biocides, which help to repel both insects and moisture.

Here is a list of treated wood's many benefits:

  • Longevity
  • Weatherproof
  • Cost-efficient
  • Fungal Resistance
  • Insect Resistance
  • Low maintenance


Cutting 47x75 Timber To Your Preferred Size

Treated wood can be readily cut to the dimensions required in your project, however, this should only be done with the right equipment, eye protection, and a respirator since the cutting process releases tiny airborne particles of wood, possibly impregnated with the chemicals used in pressure-treating.

Treated wood also cuts a little more like wet wood so some extra care should be afforded to ensure the blade doesn’t slip while cutting.
