Hardwoods and Treated Timber

We have a wide range of timber species which are ideal for piers. If you know the timber you need, we will be happy to follow your specifications, and secure a delivery date and time which suits your construction. If you need help finding the right species, our experts will learn more about your project requirements before giving you our top recommendations.

For pier construction, we usually recommend a hardwood, though there are some softwoods which can be suitable depending on your requirements. Some of the toughest natural timbers which will handle marine and external threats with ease include:

Durable, strong and resistant to rot, we can confidently recommend these species for your pier depending on its particular requirements.

We also offer treated timbers which are ultra tough, ultra durable and stable. These include ThermoWood, in which the timber is subjected to heat and pressure to increase its durability and stability naturally. Also OrganoWood, in which the timber is impregnated with a natural Silica compound which increases its resistance to rot, infestation and fire.

We Meet Your Requirements

From standard decking and timber piles to studding and framing products – bearers, beams and joists – here at EcoChoice we are ready to supply what you need. Sawn, planed or regularised timbers are available in a wide range of sections and profiles so that you never have to compromise on your designs. 

We can also ensure quality in our certified timber products. If required, we can grade your timbers for strength so that you know the planks and beams will work with your pier’s engineering standards.

EcoChoice Pier Success Stories

Our team enjoys every project we work on, but the piers we have helped bring to life are a particularly great source of pride.

We worked on the award-winning Hastings Pier, supplying their construction team with a wide range of FSC-certified Ekki timber products. This included the Ekki decking boards which make up a vast portion of the pier, spanning 11,000m2 using 35x145mm boards, as well as custom-made joists, handrails and steps. 

Our team was also proud to supply timber for the historic Victoria Pier in Colwyn Bay. Restoring the original design with a sustainable twist which focused on longevity, we supplied their Trust with durable, FSC-certified Angelim Vermelho decking and supportive joists.
