We supply both imported and homegrown CLS to the merchant and manufacturing sectors of the UK timber industry. Our long-standing partnerships with our sawmills ensure a stock of high-quality CLS, which we can supply in both full and part loads to meet all your CLS requirements.
“Canadian Lumber Standard” or CLS is kiln dried and ‘regularised’ timber finished on all sides giving a smaller cross-section than traditional sawn timber. Originating in the Canadian market, hence the name, it is mainly used for timber frame home construction and for internal and partition walls.
