Sawn timber

Coniferous sawn timber  

Mainly sawn timber is in demand at the market. Depending on the cross-section dimensions sawn timber is divided into timber of over 100 mm width and thickness, boards with width over double thickness, bars – when width is not more than double thickness.

Sawn timber from pine tree or spruce takes leading position at the local market. It is strong, easy to treat timber, which absorbs less moisture in comparison with other hardwood. That’s why practically everything, from boards and timber to mouldings, is made from sawn timber.

Coniferous sawn timber (description): appearance and price are determined primarily by treatment grade: for instance, logs are called sawing logs (or round wood), if log has passed canter chipping line one time and has flat areas on the four sides, it is called timber, along with that sawdust and wood chips are produced.

If after that timber passes through multiple sawing, we get boards (square-sawn timber). Velocity of processing of one 6 m long log into boards is 6 seconds.

Board has attractive natural timber finish. It is used in any construction works. The board fits for construction and household purposes. Timber has the backing of dark reddish or yellowish brown color and narrow yellowish white listing, large pores can be seen at the cross cut of annual ring’s early zone, light radial flame-shaped stripes, formed with small pores, can be seen in dark late timber. Annual rings and wide (real) wood rays are well noticed at all cuts. Timber is strong, rot-proof, flexible, has nice texture and can be used in many ways: as parquet, sliced veneer for workpiece finishing, in furniture industry.


Bar is a log, sawn on four sides for further sawn timber sawing. Bar and its workpieces are essential in construction. We can’t manage without bar in civil and industrial construction. Wooden things’ popularity is not reducing, it’s growing continuously. Bar has been used since long ago, it is not getting old and may serve for centuries.

Specifiс radioactivity of timber is over 100 times lower than that of brick and concrete. It can’t be compared to plastic, different coverings and other artificial materials.


Timber is subject to strict check and conforms to State standard and technical requirements.

For softwood timber production spruce and pine are more suitable, as distinct from spruce and silver-fur they are more rot-proof.

Main benefits:

  • It doesn’t change the form in service
  • Is stronger as compared to standard timber;
  • Has lower heat conductivity.
