OUR PRODUCTS

WHAT WE SUPPLY

Laminated Beams and Tops

Laminated Structural Beams are made up of several layers of dimensioned timber bonded together with a durable and moisture-resistant adhesive. Laminated beams provide strength and stability and are by far the preferred choice for structural applications.

They also add aesthetic value when used as exposed beams and rafters. H & S Timbers supply a vast range of sizes manufactured from Pine and Saligna in lengths up to 13m.

In addition to beams, we also manufacture laminated tops which can be used as kitchen and bar counters or worktops. Tops of various thicknesses can be manufactured from a range of hard and softwoods as well as imported exotic hardwoods.

TIMBER

H & S Timbers brings you a comprehensive range of hard and softwood species in grades to cover all your timber requirements.

In addition to our standard range, we can machine timber to the exact needs of our customers, usually on a short lead-time, whether it is for standard profiles e.g. architraves and skirting, or just planed all round (P.A.R.) components required for your DIY project.

Because of our long-standing reputation in the industry, we can assure our customers of consistently high quality. We pride ourselves on procuring only the best quality lumber from FSC accredited sawmills and all our Structural Pine is strictly graded to SABS standards.

We also offer a range of exotic hardwoods from Africa, Europe, South East Asia, and America for both commercial and industrial applications. Some of our species include Meranti, Red Oak, White Oak, Cherry, Beech, Kiaat, Maple, African Mahogany, and African Rosewood.

BOARDS

We are a proud distributor of locally manufactured board products from well-known companies including PG Bison, Sonae Novobord, and many more.

We supply a wide range of particleboard in raw and upgraded forms to both industry and DIY enthusiasts.

Our products include Chipboard, M.D.F, Melamine, Hardboard, Softboard, and Post Form Work Tops in a full range of dimensions, colours, and thicknesses.

More Info:

Thomas Stevenson (1818-1887) – a Civil Engineer and father of author Robert Louis Stevenson – is accredited with the design of the Stevenson Screen, which is still widely used today. He is also famous for inventing a new and much improved illumination system for lighthouses.

The screens manufactured by H & S Timbers are constructed from kiln dried Eucalyptus Saligna finished off with three coats of epoxy strontium chromate primer followed by two coats of white polyacrythane.

The front, back and side panels are doubled louvred with the outer louvre sloping downward and outward. The door has solid brass hinges at the base allowing it to hinge downward to the vertical position. When closed, the door can be locked using a solid brass hasp and staple. Three partially overlapping floorboards are fitted with the outer two sloping downward to allow rainwater to run off. Tool clips are fitted to allow easy fitting and removal of the thermometers. To offer maximum protection from the elements, the screens are fitted with a White Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) roof.

Stevenson Screens are usually supported by means of a steel stand, which is firmly set in the ground. To comply with Meteorological Office Standards, the stand must elevate the screen, so that the bulbs of the wet and dry thermometers are 1.25m above the ground. These stands are available in knock down form
