Vigidas Pack sawmill has officially been certified as per "Certificate Of Conformity Of The Factory Production Control"
this means that our factory production control fulfills all the prescribed requirements for strength graded structural timber with all the classes of C14 - C18 - C24 - C30
There are 12 strength grades as set by the British Standard in the BS 5268, but the most commonly specified are C16 and C24.
Both grades are used in structural applications and are suited to different loads. They can be used for rafters, floor joists, studwork for partition walls, formwork, shuttering etc…
Most imported graded carcassing timber these days tends to be heavy to C24 grade.
Whilst C16 graded timber is strong enough for some applications such as wall boards, studwork, rafters, joists etc… C24 comes with added benefits.
C24 timber has been graded to a higher standard than C16. It's a premium piece of timber that can handle higher loads and wider spans.
C24 grade can only be achieved by importing timber from areas where the climate forces a slower growth rate and hence a tighter grain.
