    Treated

    Treated timber is sprayed with a synthetic pyrethroid to protect the structure from being damaged by wood destroying insects such as termites in outdoor applications. The treatment process involves the application of a water borne timber preservative called Determite. Pinegard Blue is protected against termite attack by a modern safe wood preservative applied using a state-of-the-art timber treatment facility. This treatment has been thoroughly tested in Australian conditions and is approved under Australian Standards.

Solid Seasoned Hardwood F27

 

Seasoning refers to the process of removing moisture from timber or drying timber. Solid seasoned hardwood timber tends to have a superior dimensional stability to unseasoned hardwood timber and is much less prone to warping and splitting. Seasoning hardwood timber enhances the basic properties of the timber increasing the stiffness, bending strength and compression strength.

Solid seasoned hardwood should be used for indoor applications where shrinkage associated with hardwood drying out is important.

Features & Specifications
  • Consistent and attractive appearance for decorative and exposed applications
  • Offer superior nail holding capabilities and a consistent thickness and form
  • It is recommended that Pinegard Blue is used in conjunction with appropriate whole of house protection measures as outlined in AS3660.1
  • Blackbutt and Spotted Gum have a natural fire resistance. Their fire retarding properties, make them suitable for use in many bushfire prone areas under Australian Standard AS3959.
