Build/install phase

Use phase

  • The performance of timber cladding and thus whether service life is met is influenced at all stages

  • Need to objectively assess the importance of each component of a system and its contribution to delivery of service life


Durability l.jpg

Durability

  • Capability of a building or its parts to perform its required function over a specified period of time under the influence of the agents anticipated in service

  • Material of biological origin - need for protection

  • Biological durability

  • Prevent moisture ingress


Delivering durability l.jpg

Delivering durability

  • Timber species

  • Substrate selection

  • Cladding design

  • Pre-treatment

  • End grain protection

  • Primer or base stain

Durability enhancement l.jpg

Durability enhancement

  • Upgrade to DC1

    • Costly, market acceptance?

  • Accept that for the chosen design and for timber species of low durability, to maintain the desired appearance, to deliver an acceptable service life then the durability will require enhancing

    Enhancing durability

    Permanence of characteristic

    Planned maintenance


Enhance durability and test l.jpg

Enhance durability and test

  • Wood preservation

Innovation wood modification l.jpg

INNOVATION: Wood modification

  • The action on wood by chemical, biological or physical means creating a new material - “modified wood” - with a desired property enhancement for the service life of the wood product

  • >50 years of wood science

  • Numerous technologies

  • Stimulated by the need to consider alternatives to

    • Conventional wood protection

    • Non-sustainable hardwoods

  • Exciting commercial reality


Wood modification l.jpg

Wood Modification

  • Modified wood technologies can…

    • Resist decay organisms (biological durability)

    • Minimise shrinking and swelling of the wood in changing moisture conditions (dimensional stability)

    • Confer hardness and wear resistance

    • Prolong the life of exterior wood coatings

    • Compete effectively with less sustainable materials

    • Improve end of life options

  • Thermal modification ThermoWood®

  • Acetylation AccoyaTM

  • Densification Indurite*

Uncoated cladding l.jpg

Uncoated cladding

  • Typically uncoated cladding with non-uniform colour changes can lead to dissatisfaction

  • Brush applied maintenance coatings


Innovation coating system l.jpg

INNOVATION: Coating system

  • Water-borne

  • Low VOC

  • Extensibility

  • Photostability

  • Improved Environmental Profiles

  • Full factory finish

  • Powder coating
