Also referred to as joinery softwood, pine or red deal this is one of the most widely used softwoods. We only stock the highest grade which is known as unsorted grade. The name refers to the fact that commercially softwoods are graded 1 - 6. The lower 5th and 6th grades are separated off for uses such as pallets, fencing and more general applications leaving the remaining top 1-4 grades combined in an 'unsorted' grade.

Clear and better Softwood



If you require a higher grade of softwood or a solid width over 225mm we have the option of southern yellow pine. Sourced from North America this softwood specie has a higher density than European redwood giving it natural strength, impact and wear resistance as well as very good screw and nail holding properties. It is also normally available in lengths 4.2m and longer.

Grade - 25mm and 38mm thicknesses are Saps Grade. 50mm thick is Prime and Better.
