What Are Timber & Sheet Materials? 

Timber, derived from trees, is a versatile natural resource renowned for its strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal. It is available in various species, each with unique characteristics.

The origin of the term "timber" traces back to the Old English word "timbre," which directly translates to "building." This linguistic connection aptly reflects the role timber plays in construction—an essential and reliable material that lives up to its reputation.

Whether your project calls for resilient roof battens or versatile sawn timber, our comprehensive selection has all your needs covered.

Sheet materials, on the other hand, encompass a range of engineered products created by bonding or compressing layers of wood fibres, particles, or veneers.

Plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), medium-density fiberboard (MDF), and particleboard are common examples. 

Sheet materials offer advantages such as consistent strength, dimensional stability, and ease of use. They find extensive use in subflooring, wall sheathing, cabinetry, furniture manufacturing, and decorative applications.
