  • Product Description

Species

Blackbutt is a common tree in the wild and its timber is an Australian favourite. The timber is a light pale straw, it’s hardy and versatile. Blackbutt's colour, figure and suitability for staining makes it popular for indoor use. Additionally, its high natural durability and strength make it popular for external & structural use.

Variation disclaimer

Timber is a natural material. Variation in appearance and properties is an enticing part of designing and building with real timber! Each fibre in each plank in each project is uniquely designed by nature. We strive in good faith to present you with the most accurate portrayal of what you can expect in your timber by using images, past job portfolios, detailed information and samples, the other part of this responsibility is advising you that your timber's appearance WILL vary from these guides. Please use this information as a guide only.

Installation summary

Decking is typically nailed or screwed onto a suitable timber frame. They come in a raw state and are usually coated during installation. THIS IS NOT A DIY FRIENDLY PRODUCT, only an experienced installer or carpenter should attempt the installation of decking.

Sustainability

Timber is a truly renewable resource, a mature tree is harvested, a young tree grows in its place and a few decades later is ready for harvesting again. Australia's vast forests are carefully, conservatively managed to ensure a responsible amount of wood is harvested. Timber uses a relatively small amount of energy during processing compared to other building materials like metals and concrete, the timber itself is a carbon storer and has a long working life.
