Hardwood timber cladding provides an attractive and economical way to finish the exterior of both new and old buildings and suits a traditional, modern or uniquely designed commercial or residential building.

Hardwood timber cladding should be considered an integral part of the overall building design as it can contribute to aesthetics, comfort and structural performance.

Construction in Bushfire-Prone Areas
Blackbutt and Spotted Gum timber species have a natural fire resistance. Their fire retarding properties make them suitable for use in many bushfire prone areas under the Australian Standard AS3959-2009 - Construction of Buildings in Bushfire-Prone Areas.

For more information on building with timber in bushfire areas please view Boral Timber's Construction in Bushfire Zones brochure for Timber construction in bushfire prone areas throughout Australia.

Building Applications

• Residential, commercial and industrial buildings such as:
- Resorts and hotels
- Agricultural buildings
- Units
- Townhouses
- Industrial units
- Educational buildings
• Outdoor structures such as exterior walls, fences, sheds and garages

Finishing of hardwood cladding
When an exterior pigmented stain or painted finish is chosen, one or two final coats should be applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Light coloured paints and stains are recommended.

NOTE: Where cladding is installed without the application of a surface coating, weathering of these products will occur.

The long term performance of cladding is dependent on regular and effective maintenance. The frequency of maintenance will depend on the type of finish and the degree of exposure to the weather. Recoating and any further preparations should be carried out in accordance with the finish manufacturer’s specifications.

This provides peace of mind that Boral’s timber is sourced from sustainably managed and legal forestry. The Australian Forestry Standard Scheme has mutual recognition by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme (PEFC) – the world’s largest forest management certifier.
