Spotted Gum (Corymbia Maculara)
Spotted Gum is an Australian hardwood sourced from the NSW and southern QLD coastal strip. With its vibrant range of colour and features, it is one of Australia’s most unique hardwoods. The colour tends towards a variety of light browns to dark red browns, with some pinkish tinges and pronounced creamy sapwood elements, and a wavy grain pattern. Gum veins are a common feature of the timber. With its fantastic natural appearance, class 1 durability and high hardness rating, spotted gum is one of Australia’s premiere timbers.
Select grade timber has the minimum allowable occurrence of natural features such as gum veins and pin holes, with those features it does contain having the minimum allowable dimensions.
Prestige grade combines select grade timber with some relatively low feature standard grade timber.
Standard grade timber has a moderate quantity of natural features, with those features having greater allowable dimensions than those found in select grade.
Rustic grade is a combination of standard grade timber and feature grade timber, with some features which are more prominent than those found in feature grade.
Feature grade timber has a high quantity of natural features relative to standard grade, such as knots, gum veins, pin holes and even holes through the odd plank, with those features having a greater allowable range of dimensions.
Structural Solid Timber
Structural solid timber denotes timber that can be used as the primary structural floor. It ranges from 19mm thickness and above. Structural timber must be “top nailed”, meaning the nails go through the top of the plank at a 90 degree angle and into the sub-structure. The head of the nail sits below the surface level of the plank, and the resultant small hole is filled with an appropriate filler.
Overlay Solid Timber
Overlay Solid timber denotes timber which must be installed over an existing structural floor, such as existing floorboards or a concrete slab. As the Overlay timber is a non-structural floor, it does not require “top nailing”, and can rather be “secret nailed”. This means that the nail is inserted at a 45 degree angle through the tongue of the timber plank along its edge, and into the substrate.
