Tech/Engineering - Materials (Plastics, Ceramics, etc.) / timber
English term or phrase: 1500mm centres
Timber that is to be exported to Australia will be required to comply with the marking specified in AS/NZS 1748.
Marking may be by ink-marks, stamps, labels or imprints. If colour marks (see appendix A) are present in conjunction with a grade by number then the grade by number mark takes precedence.
It is recommended that each piece be marked at not more than 1500mm centres.
Grade can be indicated by colours (see Appendix A) . While this is not a recommended procedure it may happen from time to time and there may be no stress grade number on the piece.

agree  Ramesh Madhavan: A common practice with manufacturers to mark continously long products with marks inside a specified span length.// Yes, Dusty: You are very correct.

agree  Tony M: Yes, though strictly speaking 'centres' means 1500 mm spacing FROM THE CENTRE OF ONE MARK TO THE CENTRE OF THE NEXT; so if the marks themselves take up quite a bit of space, the actual GAP between them would be less than 1500 mm...
