    Tasmanian Timber

    Grown locally and sustainably, Tasmanian Timber is processed to the highest standards, and backed by the technical support of Australia's leading timber experts. Our timber is sourced from forests that are sustainably managed, independently audited and certified to an internationally acclaimed standard. The end product is revered by designer makers, architects, interior designers and furniture makers. Tasmanian Timber is a thing of beauty. 



    Tasmanian producers regularly supply timber around Australia. Some have depots while others have regular suppliers in major capitals. Others will freight special orders to you.

    Many Tasmanian producers export timber around the world and it is not just the major companies. Smaller producers can service niche markets.

    Tasmanian producers can supply engineering timber around Australia. The timber is available in natural rounds, unseasoned large sections, or in large section glue laminated timbers.

    It is relatively easy to lay timber strip flooring over a concrete slab or other flooring substrate. For a slab, it can be glued directly to the slab or fixed to a plywood underlay.

    If the strip flooring is being fixed to joists, nail sizes are set in Australian Standard AS 1684. Any glue used should be elastomeric and allow movement in the timber.

    You can build an energy efficient house that has a timber sub-floor and achieves a 5 Star energy requirement relatively easily.
