What’s the difference between C16 timber and C24 timber?
C16 and C24 represent two different types of softwood timber, these numbers differentiate how quickly the timber was taken from a growing tree.
C16 timber is taken from trees which are grown much faster than regular trees, because of this forced processes the timber can have more knots in the wood than slower grown timber. This process of fast growing and increase in knots can also make the timber less dense meaning it is weaker and not as durable as C24. The longer a tree takes to grow the denser and stronger the wood will be.
C24 timber is approximately 50% stronger than C16 timber, this means it is more appropriate for longer spans or heavier loads. A C24 joist can bear more weight than a C16 joist thanks to the increase strength and durability within.
