What Are Engineered Timber Products?

The Benefits Of Composite Timber

Composite wood boards is an engineered mix of wood and plastic fibres that are bonded and shaped into timber boards. This process creates a strong and stable board that is less likely to warp, twist, experience moisture damage or shrink than natural timber supplies. Engineered timber products are also more resistant to changes in temperature and humidity, making them ideal for use in a wide range of climates

This engineered timber also requires far less maintenance than regular wood; no need for painting, staining or oiling! – and is easy to clean with just a broom or a hose. This makes it ideal for installation both indoors and out.

Composite timber refers to a material composed of a blend of wood fibers or particles and synthetic materials, such as recycled plastics or resins. It is designed to mimic the appearance and texture of traditional timber while offering enhanced durability, stability, and resistance to environmental factors. Composite timber is a versatile alternative that combines the natural aesthetic of wood with the advantages of modern composite materials, making it suitable for various building applications, such as fencing, decking and cladding. 

Yes, composite wood is weatherproof. Unlike untreated traditional timber, composite wood is engineered to resist the effects of weathering, such as moisture, UV rays, and temperature fluctuations. The synthetic components in composite wood help to reduce issues like warping, rotting, splintering, and fading, making it highly resilient in outdoor environments. However, the level of weather resistance may vary based on the specific product and manufacturer.  

The comparison between engineered wood and hardwood depends on the context and specific project requirements. Engineered wood is constructed by layering thin sheets of wood veneer or fibers, bonded together with adhesives, to create a stable and strong material. It offers certain advantages over hardwood, such as improved dimensional stability, resistance to moisture-related issues, and potential cost savings.  

On the other hand, hardwood is a solid piece of wood derived from trees like oak or spotted gum. It boasts a natural beauty, durability, and can be refinished multiple times. Hardwood is often preferred for its authenticity, longevity, and the aesthetic appeal it brings to projects. 

The choice between engineered wood and hardwood depends on factors such as the project’s budget, desired appearance, environmental conditions, and specific application. Our team can provide guidance tailored to your project, considering these factors to determine the most suitable option for your needs. 

The maintenance requirements for composite timber are generally low when compared to traditional timber. Composite timber is designed to be resistant to rot, decay, and insect infestations, reducing the need for regular treatments or preservatives. However, to keep composite timber in optimal condition, occasional cleaning with mild soap and water may be necessary to remove dirt or debris. Additionally, it’s advisable to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding specific maintenance recommendations to ensure the longevity and performance of the composite timber products.
