Sawn timber is the result of the longitudinal sawing of a tree trunk by vertically placed frame sawing machines. Depending on the number of sawings, a distinction is made between unedged timber – when the trunk is sawn once and two flat surfaces with uneven side edges are obtained, and edged timber – when at least of two sawings are made, resulting in four planes being processed.
Wanting to choose the right raw material for you with all edges machined, you should pay attention to dimensions you need.
The largest cross sections are those of beams and logs, which can be used, for example, for wall structures. Smaller ones – edge beams, also known as square timber, feature a very wide range of applications. They are used as rafter framing that transfers weight from the roof to the walls, a substitute for concrete screed for the floor (joists), and as fence posts that maintain structural stability. The elements with the smallest height are boards and battens that are used for various types of upholstery.
