The idea of shopping local is a strong belief at Lobb St Sawmill. We source our timber and other products from predominantly Queensland based businesses, Maryborough in the North and Yatala in the south. New Zealand and Indonesia is also where our wholesalers import treated pine and decking timbers respectively. So if it's made of wood, we generally keep it - if not we can almost always order it in for you. From posts to rails and palings to nails, quality is assured.
Timber that is required for fencing is classed as H4 and is substantially more economical than building grade. The timber is treated with a CCA Treatment copper, chrome and arsenic these ingredients and their roles are: copper to control fungi arsenic to control termites chromium to fix the copper and arsenic in the wood.
We also can provide some timbers treated with the alternate ACQ alkaline copper quat is currently registered for use in all hazard classes except H6 marine use. Remember to use hot-dip galvanised or stainless steel nails or screws when fixing these treated timbers.
We stock all the needs for fencing, building and some landscaping projects.Our treated sleeper range is available in both pine and hardwood timber and we carry a large stockholding to quickly and easily fulfil even the largest of timber requirements.
It is important to note that we have a timber guarantee that means you can buy with confidence, knowing that you will get the best quality treated logs available. All timber sold at Centenary Landscaping Supplies is treated. Most are treated using the common CCA method.
This stands for Copper, Chrome and Arsenic CCA and protects the sleepers from both fungal attack rotting and insect attack termites.
Copper is the fungicide, Chrome the insecticide, and Arsenic is the fixing agent that holds the chemicals in the wood. Over recent years there has been growing concerns about the safety of such chemicals in timber, and Europe and America have moved away from such treatments.
In Queensland, CCA treated timber is now not allowed to be used in schools or playgrounds, but can still be used in general landscaping. Slowly there is a move towards ACQ treated products. For general landscaping, such as retaining walls, garden edging and so on, CCA treated sleepers are acceptable and widely used.
Buying treated timber can be tricky… even for professionals. There are different amounts of treatment put into the wood depending on what it is being used for and it is very important that the timber you buy is treated to the level required for the job at hand. The gradings are:. A second type of grading that is used on timber is related to its strength and while this is especially important in the building industry, it is also important to be mindful when landscaping.
The strength of a piece of timber is the F rating. Most landscape hardwood is graded F7, while most pine is graded F5. High quality building grade timber which we do not sell is generally around F For most domestic retaining walls, the F5 Pine is more than adequate although, if building a retaining wall over one metre, council approval is required and more than likely will require an engineered drawing.
All varieties of sleepers sold at Centenary Landscaping Supplies can be used for retaining purposes. Your selection will depend on a number of both aesthetic and structural factors. For example, a landscape graded sleeper only requires one good face and one good edge to be considered of acceptable quality. This is an important consideration when deciding on the construction method you will choose for your retaining wall.
We recommend viewing the actual stock your order will be picked from before placing your order. This means that if a crack opens up in the timber, or it is cut, untreated timber becomes exposed. So the treatment of hardwood will only minimize the risk of attack, not stop it altogether.Catering for residential, civil, commercial and industrial projects and developments, we boast superior and seamless operations across our manufacturing, pricing, customer service, turnaround and prompt delivery response.
