The Flooring HQ proudly supply/distribute Australian grown and cultivated solid timber species that are popuparly utilised as decking.
A hardwood timber deck provides a way to enhance any home, garden, commercial or retail property.
A hardwood timber deck creates a comfortable, attractive and flexible feature that can be added to any kind of flat, sloping, wet or even waterside site.
Solid timber decking are mainly applied below:
Native Australian solid timber species are an excellent choice for decking because of their high density, toughness, durability and in some species, fire retardancy – perfect for Australian conditions.
Timber used for decking is rated on a durability scale of 1-4; 1 being the most durable and 4 being the least. The durability scale denotes the timbers’ natural resistance to moisture and attack by decay producing organisms. The scale is based on an “in ground” application and does not take into consideration protecting oils and finishes or differing climatic elements. Most hardwood timbers rate extremely well on the durability scale making a well cared for hardwood timber deck a viable long term option.
For external and exposed applications, Australia has a range of high-density native hardwood timber species with considerable natural fire resistance. These hardwood timber species are sufficiently fire retarding to meet Australian Standard AS3959, and so can be used in bush-fire prone areas without any treatment. Australian timber species that meet this criteria are Blackbutt and Spotted Gum.
The natural appeal and strength of timber continues to make it the ideal choice for decking in commercial, industrial and marine structures, including:
• foot bridges
• loading docks
• commercial/industrial decks and walkways
• grandstands, and
• tourist projects such as observation decks
Solid timber decking are legally logged and sustainably sourced meeting the Australian Forestry Standard (AS4707-2006).
Domestic application: nailed or screwed directly on to bearers and joists. Fencing nailed or screwed to timber or steel post. All structural must be consulted with engineers or builders regarding design codes and regulations.
