Termite-Resistant Treated Timber

Every year termites cause millions of dollars worth of damage to timber buildings. They are the silent pests that can destroy an entire building in a relatively short period of time. Using termite-resistant timber particularly for concealed structural building components is an important part of termite management strategy.

Our selection of treated timber pine roof trusses and wall frames are termite resistant because they are protected with a preservative approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority and the Building Code of Australia.

All termite-resistant Timber Frame and Trusses come with a 25 year guarantee against termite attack provided for free and is transferable with the building ownership. Using treated timber frames and trusses will not only give the building owner peace of mind it will also increase the buildings value.

Benefits of Timber Types

Pine

The use of Australian Pine is by far the most popular timber in frames. The timber has been kiln dried and sized to give a uniform product that will not shrink or warp alolowing for use in most situations.

 
CCA Treated Pine

CCA treated pine has been treated with copper chrome arsenate. This treatment stops fungi and other timber pests and diseases from attacking and is used where there is a known problem with subterranean pests.

LOSP Treated Pine

LOSP (Light Organic Solvent Preservatives) is another treatment that deters pests and diseases. The major advantages of LOSP treatment lie in the fact that the dimensional stability of the timber is unaltered, so all manufacturing processes can be carried out before treatment, eliminating the need to dispose of treated waste materials. Additionally the timber is ready for use as soon as the solvent in the treatment process has evaporated, with no need for post treatment drying. The relatively small cost of treating the frame gives the home owner the confidence of knowing that their home has protection from attack by wood-destroying insects & decay.
