6x2 Timber C16/C24 Grade

Also referred to as 6 x 2 wood or 2 x 6 timber, this relates to the old imperial sizes of 6 inch by 2 inch and 2 inch by 6 inch. Sold by the stated nominal size of 47 x 150mm, the actual finished size of the sawn carcassing timber is around 45 x 145mm but may vary slightly. The process of regularising (regged) gives a smoother edge that takes 5mm from nominal width and 2mm from the nominal thickness. Slightly rounded edges on the lengths, achieved after the process, improve handling

C16 Timber v C24 Timber, what is the difference?

Need wood for structural support? Kiln-dried softwood like C16 and C24 are popular choices, but understanding their differences is key to a successful project.

Quality & Strength:

Grading acts like a strength ranking. C24, the top performer, excels with exceptional strength and near-perfect appearance. C16, a close second, offers solid strength with possible minor imperfections.


Need maximum muscle? C24's your champion, ideal for heavy-duty projects like beams or load-bearing walls. C16, while sturdy, works best for less demanding tasks like stud walls or internal structures.

Don't forget:

Both grades are durable for construction. The key lies in matching the specific needs of your project with the strengths and characteristics of each grade.

Things to consider that effect grading:

• Knots - More knots mean less strength
• Insect damage or woodworm holes
• Shakes or splits along the grain of the wood
• Slope of the grain
• Wane - bark or a lack of wood fibre on the edge of a piece of lumber

6 x 2 Timber C24 is visually graded and is therefore a higher quality product.

Owing to increasing demand, most areas of the UK will now supply C24 graded timber. In some regions though, 6 x 2 C16 timber will be supplied. If you have a specific requirement, please check before buying.

What is 6 x 2 Timber used for?

Don't underestimate its size. C24 6x2 timber offers impressive tensile strength, perfect for structural applications such as:

• Wall framing

• Stud walling

• Timber rafters

• Roof joists

• Floor joists

• Base for decking (must be treated if used externally)

• Heavy duty furniture building

If you're planning on using 2x6 timber for 150mm joists, care must be taken to ensure the clear spans are suitable to take the required load. If you're not sure, check the Span Table.
