Hardwood cladding envelopes a building in a protective layer that adds the beauty and warmth of timber. Increasingly popular for commercial and domestic building finishes, hardwood cladding offers design freedom, ease of handling, a range of products and the natural beauty of Australian timber species.

Design flexibility for interior/exterior use for commercial and residential projects.
Flexible and resilient to the stresses of foundation and natural seismic movements.
Provides a long-lasting and durable external surface.
Some hardwood cladding species, such as Blackbutt, are naturally termite resistant.
Designed for fixing to both timber and steel framework.

The availability of some species is state specific and not all species are available in all grades. Some additional species may be available on request. Variations within a timber species are normal, therefore photographs, samples and displays can only be indicative of colour. It is normal for natural timber products to react to changes in atmospheric and environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature.
These resources will help provide direction and clarity on the regulations, processes and procedures which govern the building and architecture industry.

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.
