The visual appearance of Timber is an important aspect, as it can sometimes determine what it will be used for. End users tend to want interior mouldings to be free of visual defects and knots to ensure a high quality appearance. That is why we visually grade our timber in accordance with the Nordic Grading Standards.

You will find out timber sorted into 4 grades which are;

  • Unsorted: The highest quality with minimal sound knots and other imperfections. This grade aligns with Nordic Grading Rules Grade A1 - A4.
  • 5ths (Or Vths): Good quality with a few sound knots of small size and other imperfections. This grade aligns with Nordic Grading Rules Grade B.
  • Sawfalling: A mix of unsorted and 5ths.
  • 6ths: More visible imperfections and suitable for a less prominent application. This grade aligns with Nordic Grading Rules Grade C.
