Timber grading is an important measure to identify whether the timber you choose is right for your product, linking the producer and designer. The process is to group together timber that is either similar in visual or structure. Visual grading sorts and groups timber on the basis of the specifications from the designer, specification includes colour, grain patterns, knot size etc.  Structural grading focuses on grouping timber with similar strength and stiffness, informing the designer whether the product is right for their specific use.

Visual grading of timber rules according to the Australian standards:

  • Knot size & frequency
  • Splits, cracks, checks
  • Colour and grain patterns
  • Functionality

Structural grading methods – based on correlation between strength and a grading limitation:

  • Visual stress grading
  • Machine stress
  • Proof grading
  • Quality control

Due to our extensive offering of imported quality timber, the following grading system will provide you with the necessary grading.
