Timber stickers

BRE (Building Research Establishment) is an independent, research-based consultancy, testing and training organisation, operating in the built environment and associated industries. A guide to the use of urban timber (FB 50) was written by Geoff Cooper and published by BRE on 31 July 2012.

The guide defines timber ‘stickers’ as:

'Thin pieces (usually in the region of 22 mm x 38 mm of variable length) of timber used to separate each layer of timber forming a parcel or pack, thus allowing air to filter through the stack to assist drying.'
