What is the timber preservation process
1. Timber is transfered into a treatment vessel
2. A vacuum pulls the air out of the vessel
3. Osmose preservative then fills the vessel
4. The vessel is pressurised forcing the preservative into the timber
5. The preservative is removed and a final vacuum is applied
6. The timber has now completed the Osmose preservation process

C24 is a stronger grade than C16.
C16 graded timber kiln dried is mainly used on internal floor joinst and roof joists. Online we offer lengths up to 6.0m - although longer lengths are available on request.
C16 treated timber is specified when the strength is required in an outside environment. Treated C16 timber is often found in roof rafters, timber framing, ceiling joists, floor joists and deck joists and other garden buildings.
