The new Woodhouse Clear Grain TM (Clear Grain) timber product has arrived and is now available in Australia.
Clear Grain™ is a range of decorative and joinery timbers manufactured from New Zealand radiata pine that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC ®). Each product in the range has been engineered so that the wood grain runs vertically along each length, optimising performance, and appearance. These timbers, all laminated and clear primed, can be used for both internal and external purposes. Clear Grain Interior is available in the form of lining boards as well as screening, battens, and trim, while Clear Grain Exterior also has options for handrail components. Clear Grain Exterior is H3 LOSP (Light Organic Solvent Preservative) treated and can be installed in a variety of exterior, above-ground applications. After profiling and treating the timbers, Intergrain Universal™ Timber Oil Clear primer is applied to protect them from exposure to sunlight, rain and humidity during installation and ensures that the finished products are ready for final top coating.
In development for over three years and rigorously tested, the Clear Grain Exterior comes with a 15-year warranty and Clear Grain Interior with a 7-year warranty, offering complete peace of mind.
Woodhouse Timber CEO, Mark Woodhouse, said, “ We are excited about bringing Clear Grain to the Australian market. It is a game-changer as we can now provide an engineered softwood product that looks like hardwood but at a much lower cost and manufactured from a more renewable and sustainable resource.”
Clear Grain comes in a pale, neutral colour, allowing for the application of a wide variety of tinted and translucent finishes. It does not leach tannins and other extractives onto surrounding surfaces.
