FINGER JOINTING FOR A SUPREME FINISH

 

Finger jointed products are created from quality New Zealand pine from which defects, such as knots, have been removed. Finger joints are precisely cut into the pieces of timber, and each joint is then glued in place using glues that ensure the finished product meets New Zealand standards. The finish, strength and stability created is superior to that of the original timber.

LAMINATED TIMBER—THE BEST STRUCTURAL TIMBER

 

Glued laminated timber, also called glulam, is a structural timber product comprising of a number of layers of timber bonded together with durable, moisture-resistant structural adhesives. Laminated timber is structurally consistent and more stable than conventional timber, making it ideal for structural posts and beams.

TREATMENT TYPES

 

Timber must be treated to the particular hazard class specification to be used in an application where these hazard risks apply.

H3.1  For above ground applications you can rely on the new generation preservation system based on safe, organic and biodegradable active constituents to provide full 25-year protection from insects and decay. Unlike some systems, the LOSP system won’t leach out or cause the timber to swell. Twenty-five year warranty.*

H5  For below ground applications Niagara offers H5 (CCA) posts and beams. This treatment allows timber being inserted directly into the ground to meet building codes. Fifty-year warranty.

STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES

 

Bearers, joists, posts and beams are the major structural components of most outdoor living areas. The rating and profile of structural components relies most importantly on spans and loadings.  

GL8 refers to a specific glue laminated standard of strength and stiffness.
