At Crendon, we only use TR26 grade timber, which is specially designed for demanding load-bearing situations. One of the only viable sources for this grade of timber are the forests of Northern Scandinavia.
Once harvested, the timber is kiln-dried and then graded by machine, testing the deflection of the timber under applied pressure.
The TR26 stamp assures customers of consistent performance, while the timber is also regularised – given a planed finish to create a regular section size.
One of the most environmentally friendly building products available,TR26 comes from PEFC sources (Programme for the endorsement of Forest Certification). FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified timber is available in restricted supplies.
Aside from being grown specifically for structural applications, the slow growth rate in the Scandinavian forests gives the timber extra strength, in fact TR26 is the strongest structural grade timber available in the UK.
