We use suppliers who source FSC® and PEFC timber from well-managed forests for the manufacture of external panels. Openings for these factory-assembled open cell panels are formed, sheathed externally and factory-fitted with breather paper. Panels are secured with stainless steel staples on polypropylene tapes that indicate stud positions. Panel sizes are bespoke but are usually 2414mm high to suit plasterboard sizes and 2400mm wide to enable manual erection. Stud centres are maximum 600mm to comply with our engineering requirements unless otherwise specified by our engineer. The external panels can be supplied in 90mm x 38mm, 140mm x 38mm or as our double panel system.

All internal panels are factory assembled with openings and usually measure at 90mm x 38mm. Walls may be sheathed with 9mm OSB for structural reasons, and head binders are supplied to fix to the head of panels, tying them together. These are supplied as pre-cut/random and are available in widths to suit any timber frame size.
