Tru-Pine® posts beams and boards combine strength and durability, with the enduring character and beauty of timber. Used in pergolas, verandas, porches, balconies and other applications requiring stunning paint finishes. Engineered for performance.
A range of high quality pre-primed timber products manufactured from pine finger-jointed for defect-free strength, and treated to withstand termites, borers and rot. Tru-Pine® combines strength and durability, with the enduring character and beauty of timber. The Tru-Pine range of versatile exterior timber products is widely used by builders throughout New Zealand and Australia.
Tru-Pine® is used for structural timber, and timber cladding. It is also widely used in exterior structures such as pergolas, decks, verandas, porches and balconies. The range includes laminated beams and posts (Tru-Pine® laminated posts are discontinued until further notice), fascia boards, timber mouldings, and weatherboards. A complementary range of hand railings, stair railings and balustrades is also available.
Tru-Pine® is awarded with the PINENZ mark - the independently certified mark of quality for engineered pine products which meets Australasian manufacturing standards.
Tru-Pine® is a premium quality timber ideal for outdoor use. It is structurally graded and has a surfaced smooth finish for easy painting.
The benefits of Tru-Pine® are:
Boards and beams are treated with an advanced proven organic pressure treatment using LOSP (Light Organic Solvent Preservative), that protects against fungal decay, rot, insect attack (including Formosan termites).
Also ideal for interior structural usage where an aesthetically pleasing high grade paint finished product is required. `
Tru-Pine® products are manufactured from radiata pine, an exceptionally versatile timber known for its exceptional machining properties, durability when treated, strength, stability and lightness. Paint coatings are easily applied and achieve a smooth visually appealing surface finish.
The radiata pine used in the manufacture of Tru-Pine® products is sourced from New Zealand's renewable plantation forests. This timber has Forest Stewardship Council Certification as it is sourced from forests which comply with set environmental, social and economic standards.
Tru-Pine® is pressure treated with Light Organic Solvent Preservatives (LOSP).
All Grades are treated to H3 using Azole fungicides and permethrin termite control actives.
Tru-pine® carries a 25 year limited treatment guarantee against fungal decay and insect attack when timber is exposed in H3.1 conditions.
Polyurethane adhesive is used in finger jointing and lamination. This adhesive conforms to the AS5068 Service Class 3 operative standard for exterior above ground use exposed to weather.
To fasten Tru-Pine®, hot-dipped galvanized, high tensile aluminum or stainless steel fasteners are recommended for general use in exterior applications. The active ingredients used in the timber treatment process are non–corrosive to nails and fastenings and are compatible with bright steel, although the use of bright steel fixings is not recommended.
We recommend Tru-Pine® is painted with colours that have a Light Reflective Value (LRV) of 45 to 100, (100 being pure white). Colours with a LRV of 44 to 0 (0 being pure black) progressively generate extreme surface heat when exposed to direct sunlight. Over time this heat can cause resin bleed, shrinkage, distortion and cracking and will also reduce the service life of the paint coatings.
