View as

Our 3x2 treated and untreated timber offers both versatility and durability, making it an ideal building material for a wide range of construction projects. With dimensions of 75mm in width and 47mm in thickness, it is a sought-after choice for framing, decking, and other outdoor structures.

We hold huge stock of 3x2 (75 x 47mm) treated and untreated timber available in various lengths to suit your construction requirements.

Our treated 3×2 timber is responsibly sourced and tanalisedm meaning it has been treated with the timber preservative Tanalith to increase its lifespan.

Primary Uses of 3x2 Timber

3x2 timber is predominantly chosen for constructing stud wall partitions, serving both as horizontal and vertical elements. Owing to its treatment, 47x75 timber is apt for numerous indoor and outdoor settings, such as roofs, floors, and walls.

Common applications include:

  • Roof and flooring joists
  • Timber framing in building structures
  • Decking, due to its resilience and moisture resistance
  • Crafting outdoor frames, pergolas, and fences
  • Building garden sheds and furniture

However, remember, 3x2 is a non-structural timber, implying it isn't suitable for load-bearing in building structures.

  • Precise Preparation: We emphasize on the finished size, ensuring meticulous timber preparation and quality.
  • Versatility: Its treatment renders it apt for both indoor and outdoor settings, boosting durability.
  • Environmental Resilience: The treated wood is resistant to varied environmental elements, enhancing its outdoor longevity.

Common 3x2 Queries

  • 3x2 Timber in Millimetres: Nominal at 47mm x 75mm and finished at 45mm x 70mm.

Storing in a moderate environment is key; extreme heat might cause warping, while premature painting can be counterproductive due to internal chemicals.
  • Can 47x75 Timber be Easily Cut? While treated wood can be customized to your project dimensions, ensure you use the right equipment and protective gear. The treated wood behaves slightly differently during cutting, so proceed with caution.
  • Cost of 3x2 Timber: Timber's ubiquity makes it affordable, but prices can fluctuate based on supply dynamics. For bulk orders, connect with us for a tailored quote.
