Hello, I need a bit help for my study, I´m translating a OSHA document, and the last expression I don´t understand is "full size undressed"

Anyone who can explain me what is meant by this?

Thanks!



1926.855(b)
Before demolishing any floor arch, debris and other material shall be removed from such arch and other adjacent floor area. Planks not less than 2 inches by 10 inches in cross section, full size undressed, shall be provided for, and shall be used by employees to stand on while breaking down floor arches between beams. Such planks shall be so located as to provide a safe support for the workmen should the arch between the beams collapse. The open space between planks shall not exceed 16 inches.

Must be a purely American term. I don't remember anything like it in the British scaffolding boards (BS2482) or Construction (Health Safety and Welfare) 1996 regs.

I've never come across the expression but 'undressed' refers to timber that hasn't been plane or sanded (i.e. the surface is left rough). I imagine the 'full size' means the whole length of the timber should be left undressed, presumably to reduce risk of slipping.

A "dimensional" 2"x10" as used in building construction is really a 1.5"x 9.5". So the OSHA instruction is telling you to use a true size of 2"x10" for your support.
