What dimensions do I need to know?

Flooring dimensions are measured in millimeters, width x thickness. In 19mm-thick flooring the standard widths are 80mm, 130mm, 180mm and 210mm, but 10mm, 12mm, 14mm and 21mm-thick flooring is also available.
Ash and Tasmanian Oak is available in 83mm, 85mm, 108mm, and 133mm.

Recycled, re-milled flooring can come in the above sizes or can be cut to measure.

We also machine new timber to any size.


Dressed timber (that which has been machined by a moulder and is smooth) is measured in millimeters, width x thickness. Standard widths are 40mm, 60mm, 80mm, 100mm, 140mm, 160mm, 190mm, 220mm, 240mm, 270mm and 290mm. Standard thickness are 19mm, 32mm and 40mm.

Posts and beams are generally measured in inches, so a 4 x 4-inch post refers to a 100 x 100mm post that is rough sawn (the finish of timber when it has been cut by a band saw and is slightly furry to touch – ideal for outdoor use). We can also apply a brushed finish, which provides a smooth finish but remains organic and soft in appearance.

For more depth and natural colour, we recommend oiling posts and beams to bring out the grain of the timber.
