Perth Timber Gluts FAQ – Hardwood vs Softwood?

Classifying wood as either Hardwood or Softwood comes down to its Physical Structure and Composition . In Timber Gluts and Timber Dunnage usage we look for the Mechanical Properties of Timber,  Crushing Strength, Modulus of Elasticity and Modulus of Rupture, Timber species are given a S OR SD rating associated with each particular Specie, a S rating is used for Green Sawn Timber and SD for Kiln dried Timber.

Minimum Values For Strength Groups Unseasoned (Green) Timber (MPa)
Property S1 S2 S3 S4 S5 S6 S7
Modulus Of Rupture 103 86  73  62  52  43  36
Modulus Of Elasticity  16300 14200 12400 10700 9100 7900 6900
 Maximum Crushing Strength  52 43 36 31 26 22 18

Perth Timber Gluts FAQ – What is ISPM 15?

ISPM 15 was developed to address the global spread of timber pests by regulating the movement of timber packaging and dunnage in international trade. ISPM 15 describes measures to reduce the risk of introduction and/or spread of quarantine pests associated with solid timber packaging material (includes dunnage).

ISPM 15 can be applied to any solid wood packaging material. The following products are exempt: wood packaging made wholly of wood-based products such as plywood and veneer, reconstituted wood products (particle board, chipboard, hardboard (masonite) oriented strand board, high density fibre board, and medium density fibre board) or products created using glue, heat and pressure or a combination of these.

Perth Timber Gluts FAQ – What is Treated Timber?

Treated Timber is timber which has been coated with preservatives to increase the timber’s resistance to attack by wood fungi (rot) and wood eating insects. This chemical treatment increases the timber’s durability to an enhanced level which is suitable for the intended use. Both Treated and Untreated can be used outside as a Timber glut however the Untreated glut especially Softwood will have a limited lifespan compared with the treated option which could last as long as 40 years if treated to a high Level. Due to Hardwoods natural resistance to treatment they are not generally treated,  Pine however is widely treated and extensively used as gluts.

There is a large variety of treatments available, some treatments protect the timber against borers and/or termites; others protect the timber against insects, borers and general decay. Different coating preservatives are used for different protection requirements or Hazard Levels.

Perth Timber Gluts FAQ – 6 Hazard Treatment Levels

There are six main levels of treatment and a number of sub-levels. These are called hazard levels and relate to the hazard to which the timber is going to be exposed.Please see the table below which are based on the hazardousness of the exposure. Different Hazard Levels have different preservatives, different preservative penetration patterns and different preservative retention requirements.

Hazard Level Exposure Specific Service Conditions Biological Hazard Typical Uses
 H1  Inside, above ground  Completely protected from the weather and well ventilated and protected from termites  Lyctid Borer  Framing, flooring, furniture, interior joinery
 H2  Inside, above ground  Protected from wetting, Nil leaching  Borers and termites  Framing, flooring, etc., used in dry situations
 H2F  Inside, above ground  Protected from wetting, Nil leaching  Borers and termites  Framing (envelope treatment) used in dry situations south of the Tropic of Capricorn only
 H2S  Inside, above ground  Protected from wetting, Nil leaching  Borers and termites  LVL/Plywood (glue-line treatment) used in dry situations south of the Tropic of Capricorn only
 H3  Outside, above ground  Subject to periodic moderate wetting and leaching  Moderate decay, borers and termites  Weatherboard, fascia, pergola posts (above ground), window joinery, framing and decking
 H3A  Outside, above ground  Products predominantly in vertical exposed situations and intended to have the supplementary paint coat system that is regularly maintained  Moderate decay, borers and termites  Fascia, bargeboards, exterior cladding, window joinery, door joinery and non-laminated verandah posts
 H4  Outside, in-ground contact  Subject to severe wetting and leaching  Severe decay, borers and termites  Fence posts, greenhouses, pergola posts (in-ground) and landscaping timbers
 H5  Outside, in-ground contact, contact with or in fresh water  Subject to extreme wetting and leaching and/or where the critical use requires a higher degree of protection  Very severe decay, borers and termites  Retaining walls, piling, house stumps, building poles, cooling tower fill
 H6  Marine waters  Subject to prolonged immersion in sea water  Marine wood borers and decay  Boat hulls, marine piles, jetty cross bracing
