Details

PL8 Visual Grade Posts are structurally engineered timber elements with high strength and dimensional stability, good load carrying capacity, superior fire resistance, and are manufactured from select quality pine timber. These are intended for use in applications where appearance of the member is important and clear or painted finishes are used. All surface voids are filled, small tight knots are permitted. The surfaces are planer machined to a high quality finish. You can opt for machine finish, bandsawn finish, sanded and sealed or pre-primed. Prolam PL8 Visual Beams are treated to H3.2 or H5.

All timber used for laminating is carefully selected for production and graded according to strict Prowood specifications. All timber stock is kiln dried, to 13% average moisture content, to ensure efficient bonding in the gluing operations.

The laminations are machine finger jointed if required, with glue being cured by state of the art European press systems and controlled temperature. Prolam PL8  posts are manufactured to the wide range of sizes specified by the Prolam online software program.

Prolam comes standard in a common range of sizes that match standard timber sizes for easy integration, as well as any sized made to order beams. Standard sized Prolam is the cheapest large cross section structural timber in New Zealand, better the cost of large cross section SG8 or SG17.

Bandsawn Finish

 

PROWOOD PLPH5 100 BS

This is usually required in the visual grade, as it is used for its rustic visual appearance, the “roughness” of the bandsawn finish will vary as every saw will put a different finish on the product.

Sanded and Sealed

 Sanded and sealed POST

This is a premium finish added to a visual product, where all blemishes are filled, the whole product is sanded and then coated with a sealer that will protect the product from ingress of moisture for 6 weeks. This sealer is not a long term sealer. The product must be sealed for the long term as per our painting/sealing requirements.

 

Pre-Primed

 pre primed2

This is a primary coat that is applied in our factory as a protective coat to stop ingress of moisture until the undercoat and top coats are applied. This primer coat is not to be used as the final finish and the product must be sealed for the long term as per our painting/sealing requirements.
