Design Pine is a range of structural and decorative timber products coated with a genuine primer. Impregnated with a preservative to prevent the onset of decay and resist insect attack in all above ground applications, Design Pine is finger jointed and/or laminated for increased dimensional stability to give a reliable product for years to come.
All finger jointed primed pine products are made up of four key components, these being the timber, the preservative, the glue system, and the primer system. Each one of the defined components can vary in quality and performance, each should be evaluated on their own merit prior to selecting a product. Design Pine does not jeopardise its quality as only the finest quality components are used to create the ultimate outdoor timber solution.
All products in the Design Pine range utilise an innovative organic preservation system and are rated to hazard level 3 (H3) for all above ground applications. The preservation system is free of heavy metal allowing Design Pine be used in high contact areas as specified by the APVMA. Waxes and resin are used in the preservative to aid dimensional stability over the life of the product in application by they reduce the rate of moisture uptake into the timber.
This proven preservation system increases durability, resists rot and decay, increases resistance to insect attack and is covered by a limited 25-year durability guarantee.
Timber is a natural material and thus the use of light coloured topcoats is recommended. Dark colours tend increase the boards temperature and may lead to problems such as surface checking and resin bleeds. An optimum finish is obtained with two topcoats of quality exterior paints within 12 weeks of installation.
First remove all dirt etc, and prime all bare areas with Design Pine exterior primer. If the primer surface is exposed to weather for an extended period without painting (3+ months), the surface may become chalky. If this happens sanding and repriming is required. Painted Design Pine creates a beautiful glossy finish.
While Design Pine is treated, it remains a non-hazardous waste. Thus, private and commercial users can dispose of cuts through normal waste refuse. Design Pine timber off cuts should not be burnt as domestic fuel nor supplied for mulching or animal bedding.
Design Pine comes in a wide range of profiles, which can be used in all above ground applications. Some examples include:
