    Structural timber that makes the grade

    We use modern grading technology to sort the timber into standardized classes. This helps us select the best raw material for each end use – and reduces handling costs and raw material waste. We cut and grade according to your individual needs. 

    If you are building a load-bearing structure, strength grading provides an accurate basis for choosing just the right wood based on its strength, stiffness and appearance. 

    Stora Enso offers up to the highest C35 and C40 strength classes available and our products are CE-marked. 

    High environmental credentials

    Structural timber is one of the best materials for wood construction. It is effectively carbon neutral, with the lowest embodied CO2 of any building material. And it is also the only naturally renewable building material. All our wood supply chains are covered by a wood traceability system that is third-party verified according to PEFC™, FSC® or both systems.
