Indoor structural timber
Timberlink produces a range of renewable untreated and termite-treated structural timber.
Termite and EHB Protected Timber Framing
Timberlink Blue is Australian grown plantation pine that has been treated to provide protection from termite and European House Borer (EHB) attack.
If you are building in a termite or European House Borer (EHB) risk zone Timberlink Blue is the simple, cost effective, and renewable solution for protecting the structure of your home.
Timberlink Blue is our structural house framing range with the addition of guaranteed termite and EHB protection. The price difference between protected and unprotected plantation framing is small. Typically, the cost of treatment is less than two percent of the value of the average house and land package: a small price to pay for 25 years’ peace of mind.
Timberlink Blue is suitable for use in termite affected areas south of the Tropic of Capricorn. Always check with your council or local building authority to determine whether you need to use termite-treated framing. If building above the Tropic of Capricorn, H2 or better treated framing such as Timberlink Green should be used due to the different termites found there.
If you are in Western Australia, you need to check if you are building in a European House Borer (EHB) restricted movement zone (RMZ). If you are, the Agriculture and Related Resource protection (European House Borer) Regulations 2006 require the use of pine that has been treated to hazard level H2 (H2F included) or higher or non-EHB prone wood. This makes Timberlink Blue an ideal choice for roof framing when building in WA.
