The preparation and packing of timbers on site at Clows Top ensure that machine round timbers are supplied to meet our benchmark standards.
The introduction of a 900kw Biomass unit has converted our kiln drying facilities to a more sustainable fuel source utilising wood waste created at both the Hartlebury and Clows Top manufacturing sites to provide heat for the kilns and across the wider site.
Once the timbers have been processed through the plant they are packed for kilning and treatment. Each pack is sticked prior to kilning to maintain air flow and even drying prior to being loaded into one of the three state of the art Drying Kilns with capacity of 180m3 (Approximately 6 artic loads of timber).
Timbers are kilned down to 40% moisture for Spruce and 30% for Pine.
