Timber C24 and C16, what are the differences?
Timber are often classed into numbers. C24 Timber and C16 Timber are both varieties of Softwood lumber. The C numbers represent how fast the wood was removed from a developing Softwood tree.
Timber (C16) extracted from a tree which has developed at an accelerated pace, compared to standard trees. Thanks to this process of forced growth, the C16 timber often has an increased number of knots throughout the wood. Opposed to the gradually grown timber.
Having the timber grown at an increased rate with more knots throughout can result in a lighter, therefore weaker wood. The C24 graded timbre Is a more durable timber, taken from a tree which has been allowed to grow at a natural slower pace than the C16 timber.
Trees which are given a prolonged amount of time to grow, will always be stronger, denser and more durable than wood which has had their growth time quickened.
C16 timber is generally 50% weaken than C24 timber.
