Timber Firrings

Timber firrings, also known as firring strips or furring strips, are essential components in construction and renovation projects, particularly in roofing and flooring installations. These timber elements are designed to create a level surface on uneven substrates or to provide additional support and insulation.

Crafted from high-quality timber, firring strips offer durability and reliability, ensuring longevity in various applications. MGN Builders Merchants, a trusted name in construction supplies, offers a range of firring strips to meet diverse project requirements. 

What are timber firrings, and what are they used for?

Timber firrings, also known as firring strips or furring strips, are wooden components used in construction to create a level surface on uneven substrates or to provide support and insulation. They are commonly employed in roofing and flooring installations.

What sizes of timber firrings are available?

Timber firrings are available in various dimensions to suit different project requirements. Typical sizes include Firring Treated Timber 47mm x 75mm to 0mm, Firring Treated Timber 47mm x 100mm to 0mm, and Firring Treated Timber 47mm x 150mm to 0mm.

How do timber firrings contribute to insulation in construction?

By raising the insulation layer away from the substrate, timber firrings prevent thermal bridging, which occurs when a conductive material spans an insulated gap, reducing the overall insulation performance. Firring strips help enhance insulation effectiveness by creating an air gap between the insulation and the substrate.

 Are timber firrings resistant to moisture and rot?

Timber firrings can be treated to resist moisture and rot, enhancing their durability and longevity, especially in outdoor or damp environments. Treated firring strips are recommended for applications where exposure to moisture is a concern.

Can timber firrings be used for structural reinforcement?

While timber firrings primarily serve as support elements and for creating level surfaces, they can contribute to structural reinforcement in certain applications. However, for significant structural support, it's essential to consult with a structural engineer to ensure proper design and installation.
