Manufacture

We are specialists in the manufacture of structural timber frame. Our team have the equipment, infrastructure, experience and skills to manufacture complex timber frame designs to an extremely high quality. When it comes to the manufacturing of timber frame, our reputation speaks for itself as we have had countless happy clients since we began trading in 1982. We can manufacture a wide range of designs for projects large and small, taking all requirements into account for complete customer satisfaction.

 

We can manufacture external wall panels from 89mm up to 195mm thick, and up to 3m high and 4.8m long. We also have the capability to pre-insulate external wall panels with rigid insulation boards to meet the requirements of any specification. Our floor panels are manufactured with a choice of structural members from traditional softwood joists or I-joists. For common spans or for more open plan style buildings we use metalweb joists or laminated beams to achieve longer spans. If required, we can also manufacture roof panels similarly to our floor panels. However the vast majority of our roofs are made from our own prefabricated roof trusses.

    Manufacture FAQs

    Timber frame manufacture is the process of building and creating timber frame designs. After your designs have been finalised, Structural Timber Frame can begin to manufacture your project and bring your ideas to life. This process is included with every timber frame project, both big and small, and takes everything into account to ensure our customers are satisfied with their timber frame structure. 

    At Structural Timber Frame, we have the ability and experience to manufacture wall panels, roof panels, open plan buildings, floor panels and roof trusses. Whatever timber frames your project requires, Structural Timber Frame will manufacture them for you.

    Timber frames are manufactured with our highly trained and skilled team of timber frame manufacturers. Their years of experience, along with the necessary equipment and infrastructure, allows them to complete all projects given to them at Structural Timber Frame to an extremely high standard. 

    Timber frame structures are built using precision engineering and pre-fabricated components. Each component is perfectly measured and cut to fit your design, ensuring your timber frame structure is as sturdy as possible.

    The price of timber is often lower than other common building materials, such as brick. Timber is a relatively cheap building material and can be quite cost-effective during construction. It’s not only versatile, meaning it can be clad in almost any building material, but manufacture with timber is often a quicker process. If your project is completed with a timber frame structure, you won’t only save on the cost of building materials, but also on the cost of labour.  

    The main advantage of timber frame manufacture is that the material is very easy to work with, allowing for more flexibility and complicated designs when using timber frame structures. Timber is also relatively cost-effective, reducing manufacturing costs and encouraging further investment in larger timber frame structures. 

    As one of the most eco-friendly building materials, timber is a popular choice for many. It is a non-toxic and organic material, with the lowest embodied C02 of any building material. 

    Different types of timber can be used for timber frame manufacture, including: 

    • Teak
    • Oak
    • Pine
    • Redwood
    • Cedar
    • Spruce

    Certain timbers are best suited to different structures, with softwoods like Cedar better suited to outdoor projects. Structural Timber Frame will inform you of the timber we are using for your project, and will work with you to bring your design to life.

    Timber frame manufacture is the second stage in the Structural Timber Frame construction process. It takes your timber frame design and starts creating the components for it. You would need timber frame manufacture after your design has been finalised and both you and our design team are happy with the structure. Structural Timber Frames can then pass the design over to our manufacturing team.
