At Sydenhams, we can supply an extensive range of PSE sizes from our 2 main milling facilities (Poole and Wickham Depots), the timber is selected into grades by the quality of each piece and then packaged in the country of origin. Most Joinery comes from Scandinavia, with a selected range from Europe.

Unsorted Joinery (Premium Grade)
This is the best quality Joinery timber, where the lower grades have been removed (sorted). Unsorted Joinery is mainly used where the visible finish is of paramount importance, such as doors, windows or stairs. Unsorted is also used for skirtings, architraves and other internal mouldings when a high quality finish is essential.
Unsorted Joinery has a low knot content, straight grain and a smooth finish.
5th Grade (Standard Grade)
This is the next grade, a more multi purpose grade, which has a huge variety of uses. The bulk of Sydenhams PSE and mouldings are machined from 5th Grade. 5th Grade is typically used for cladding, flooring, skirting, architraves, dado rails and many others.
5th Grade Joinery still maintains the smooth finish of unsorted but has a slightly higher knot content.
6th Grade (Contract Grade)
The lowest grade that Sydenhams import which has larger knots and more defects. It is used for packaging materials and disposable pallets. 6th Grade can also be used for some claddings, and furniture manufactures where the defects add to the features of the furniture.
6th Grade Joinery has a higher knot content than unsorted, with the grain not always straight.
