This website, which is funded by TRADA (Timber Research and Development Association) contains a wealth of technical information relevant to the timber trade, building professionals and contractors. We have made a large proportion of the technical information on the site free to anyone who registers with us using the simple form above.
TRADA exists to help grow markets for timber through providing technical information support. So there are no catches to this offer – we are simply using membership funds to meet our objectives as well as yours.
As a registered user you will not be inundated with unnecessary emails. We only send out short useful news items covering issues such as new technical information available on line, changes to codes and regulations, training and conferences, new books available on timber etc. We send out no more than an average of 2 enews a month and it is easy to unsubscribe. All that we ask is that you receive one and see if it is helpful. The vast majority of those registering with us are happy to receive our enews items even though we make it very easy to unsubscribe.
Whilst we do allow access to a lot of our information for free, there are technical areas on the website which are for paying members only. Membership, which pays for this website, obviously needs to carry unique privileges.
Some of the information on this website can be freely accessed without registering. This includes:
- Suppliers Directory
- On-line bookshop
- Details of our commercial services
- Details of our training courses and conferences
