The finest Oak timber, sustainably sourced and available for all of your joinery requirements. We can cut to size for a perfect fit.
Sawn to size
We are a major oak timber merchant supplying quality hardwood.
We predominately operate across the western half of the country. As well as operating in the West, we also offer a nationwide delivery service.
We maintain close connections with our European suppliers to give us the upper hand in sourcing European oak and other hardwood, which in turn, enables us access to the best pricing and continuity of supply.
Our oak timber comes from specialist mills in Europe that offer the very best quality and range of hardwood. Maintaining these supplier relationships enables us to satisfy the needs of the restoration sector, the joinery trade and the construction industry whilst still meeting the demands of today’s competitive market.
As a respected timber merchant we ensure all of our hardwood meets our quality standards.
Oak beams, particularly in the building trade, are quite probably the most ‘traditional’ material used, creating structures with a warmth and style all of their own.
These can be used for framed extensions, framed garages, swimming pools and extensions. The Oak we supply can also be used for fireplace beams and surrounds.
We can supply structural Oak Hardwood, often called beam Oak, in a multitude of different grades and sizes ranging up to 20″ x 20″ cross-section and up to 40′ in length (although in exceptional circumstances we have produced larger!).
We are also licensed by TRADA (Timber Research And Development Association) to stress grade Oak to BS 5756, grades being THA D40, THB D30, TH1 D30 and TH2, thus giving you peace of mind that the Oak you are using are strong enough for the intended task. We are the timber merchant for you, so if you would like to find out more then give us a call on 01939 235550.
Kiln dried products
One of our main product lines include kiln dried European Oak. The primary grades are:
- Prime grade (Knot free, Sap free, Very clean)
- Joinery grade (Small sound knots, very small sap on one face)
- Character grade (Medium sound knots allowed, strip of sap on one face)
In House Cutting/Milling
We are one of the few remaining importers who still have an in house sawmill. This gives us the flexibility to offer a very quick turnaround. The modern stock systems for our customers are just in time not just in case.
Having our own milling facilities on site at our depot in Wem, Shropshire, allows us to fine tune our products. For example, if we were to stock a feather edge product through the summer it will distort and cup. As we cut our entire feather edge from stock, we can program this into our production schedule and supply an excellent flat cladding.
Many of our customers order sawn to size. We receive a specific cutting specification via email or on our on line shop. Our team of skilled, dedicated sawyers will produce as per the ordered grade. As we cut in house this gives us the flexibility of being able to reduce our availability on orders to within 24 hours from time of order. Also we can select the correct grade from stock to relate to the end use.
We always insure that our dedicated team understand what our customers are after, what the timber is being used for, and ultimately, providing customer satisfaction.
Border Hardwood take environmental issues very seriously. We have been PEFC certified for many years now and the vast majority of our Oak is sourced from renewable sources. All of our Oak is able to be supplied with a chain of custody certificate if requested on order. We insure that we continue to support the replanting of the trees.
