  • Conforms to BS 4978 and EN 14081:2006
  • Sustainably Sourced Timber
  • Regularised on all sides for uniform size, with eased corners

  • Not suitable for use in direct ground contact.

What is 3x2 CLS Studwork Timber Size in mm?

The designation "3x2" refers to the joist size in inches, -  47 x 75mm in metric measurements. However, CLS undergoes planing on all sides to attain an even and uniform finish, resulting in a "finished" size slightly smaller, approximately 38mm x 63mm, ensuring consistency throughout.

This minor difference is typical in CLS timber and is particularly beneficial for structural projects involving the application of plasterboard or similar materials to the structure.

What is 3x2 CLS Timber Studwork Used For?

C16 timber studwork is commonly used in construction for framing stud walls, particularly in residential and commercial buildings. CLS Timber is a versatile and sturdy timber suitable for creating the framework of internal walls, partitions, and other structural elements within buildings. CLS C16 Timber is often employed in framing to provide support for plasterboard or other wall finishes. These studs are known for their strength and are utilised in various construction projects where a robust internal framework is required.

What Does Kiln Dried Mean?

Kiln-drying involves a method of placing timber or wood within a kiln to remove excess moisture. The controlled heat and airflow in the kiln reduces drying time and improves the uniformity,  resulting in a lighter, sturdier material that's less susceptible to warping or cracking. Kiln-dried wood offers enhanced stability, making it a preferred choice across construction, woodworking, and furniture making due to these beneficial attributes.

What Lengths Do 3x2 CLS Timber Studwork Come in?

We offer 3x2 CLS timber in 2.4m, 3m, and 4.8m lengths. Although our goal is to have all sizes ready for delivery, there could be instances where we substitute a longer length if particular sizes face delays or become unavailable in your area.

What Does CLS Stand For?

Initially sourced from Canada, CLS stands for "Canadian Lumber Standard,". However, it is now sourced from multiple countries, including the UK. It refers to a specific timber type widely used in construction and framing.

Renowned for its smooth finish, consistent dimensions, and robustness, CLS timber is best suited for applications such as stud walls, framing, and various structural needs in building and construction projects.

What Does C16 Stand For?

C16 timber is a categorization within the UK timber grading system. The "C" signifies the wood type, typically coniferous in this context, while the number indicates its bend strength grading - determined by factors like the presence (or absence) of knots and imperfections.

Widely employed in construction, C16 timber serves various purposes, including framing, joists, and structural elements. Noted for its strength, it is well-suited for moderate load-bearing applications. Builders and contractors commonly choose C16 timber for projects requiring a robust yet reasonably priced timber option, particularly in domestic construction for tasks like wall framing, roofing, and general structural support.

Do I Need Treated 3x2 Timber?


Our untreated 3x2 CLS Timber is ideally used for internal applications unless adequately treated. If your project might face moisture or pest issues, choosing treated timber could be more fitting. Treated timber is better prepared for outdoor projects like decking, roofing, and similar tasks.
