Bespoke Machining

Enquire

Harlow prides itself not only on the comprehensive range of timber products we offer but also the range of specialist machining services that compliment and enhance our capabilities for your project. Whether you need a simple while you wait cut or a bulk machined timber component or product to your job spec we offer a bespoke machining service to meet your requirements. 

So whether it's a traditional strength graded and regularised joist to length, bespoke machined and primed skirting boards, door linings or casings in soft or hardwood, bespoke treated fencing or cut to size sheet materials we can offer you a practical and cost effective solution.

At Harlow we only machine timber and products purchased from us so unfortunately if your enquiry is for bespoke machining of your own timber or sheet materials we are unable to assist.

MACHINING

Having invested consistently over the years in our sawmills we have the capacity to provide a comprehensive machining service. With several six head moulders, band re-saws, cross cut saws, panel saws, bench saws, planers and spindle moulders at our disposal we have the ability to regularise carcassing, produce bespoke Door Casing/Linings, Rebates, Skirting Boards & Architraves and bespoke fencing requirements. We also offer a machine & match profiling service where we will match any timber profile you give us or if needed machine tool brand new profile designs.

Throughout our network of branches we have retained a sawmill facility meaning that when you are using our services in branch you will also find a suite of machines with trained machinists to help you with your bespoke project.

DELIVERY

At Harlow we are delighted to offer a fast and efficient delivery service. Situated throughout the midlands with our central hub just a stones throw from the M1 when you are placing a bespoke machining requirement and need a delivery too we can cater for your needs in an efficient manner.

TREATMENT

At Harlow we have invested in our own in house on size pressure treatment tank facilities to ensure that if you require bespoke treated timber we can cater for your requirement. It is important in some circumstances to protect your timber products from the elements, fungal and insect attack. Harlow's team of treatment technicians have years of experience in producing timber to meet the specifications of our clients, and our treatments are performed in a controlled process with modern industrial treatment vessels giving an unrivaled level of protection.

So if your bespoke timber project involves timber treatment we have you covered with the expertise and equipment in house to complete your job to a high specification. 

STRENGTH GRADING

At Harlow we keep huge stocks of strength graded kiln dried carcassing and CLS (graded to BS4978 strength class C16 or C24) on the ground, but if your requirement is for graded timber beyond the scope of the norm Harlow has its own team of Certificated Visual Stress Graders.

Third party Trada and CATG certified our graders are qualified to select timber to your specification and to the structural grade that your job requires, so if you need structural strength graded timber out of the ordinary we'd be delighted to heat from you with your enquiry.

PRIMING

Another bespoke requirement we cater for at Harlow is the priming of your timber. We have a specialist unit and team of experienced staff at our central hub that can prime your product if your specification requires. 

Often a requirement for decorative or moulded timber or MDF such as skirting boards or architraves at Harlow we have established relationships with clients priming a wide range of timber products to meet their specs, and if you have a timber requirement that has a primed element to complete your job we are ready and waiting to hear from you with your enquiry.

REGULARISING

Within our sawmill capability at our central hub we are able to regularize timber to your finish specifications. Regularising is a simple, quick and effective sawmill process that gives timber a uniform thickness and/or depth throughout its entire length. Used particularly when a consistent level surface is required in timber products such as floor joists, ceilings & wall battens.

If you have a bespoke requirement for any quantity of regularised timber then we'd be happy to hear from you to discuss your requirement.

SAWING & CROSS CUTTING

Although we carry huge stocks of timber in off the shelf sizes there can be situations where specific non standard stock size and/or length of timber is required. Our band re-saws, cross cut and bench saws allow us to produce any timber size and length exactly to your specification and desired quantity. 

Machining or working timber to your specification in site can be a time consuming and constly exersize so if you have a bespoke requirement of this nature why not let the expert sawmills 7 machinists at Harlow take this headache out of your project.

Within our hub we have a suite of 6 sided moulders that can cater for timber products that required a profile to any size or scope or requirement, and we even have our own in house tool shop that can create cutters for your profile if we don't have one already to meet your specification.

It a little known fact that the timber skirting boards, architraves, decking, timber flooring & cladding that we sell are all moulded in our very own mills to our own in house specs, and if you have a project that requires a bespoke or out of the ordinary shape our expert sales, design and tooling teams are on hand to create what you need from a variety of source timbers.
