How does Kiln Drying and Finger Jointing affect the performance of the Weatherproof® range?

Kiln Drying ensures that all Weatherproof retains its dimensional integrity and does not distort when used onsite.  In simple terms the timber maintains its original size, shape and strength grading.  All radiata is dried to an average moisture content of 12-15%, ensuring the versatility of Weatherproof when used in all construction.  Finger Jointing is the process of removing defects from the wood fibre and mechanically joining the pieces of radiata into longer, straighter lengths.
