TAS Landscape Technical: Specifying Timber & Coatings
AILA’s new Landscape Technical CPD sessions provides a forum for presentation and exhibition of industry information in an educational and inspiring format. The sessions offer landscape architects the opportunity to learn about the latest trends and research from Australia’s leading suppliers in one jam-packed session.

Presentation 1: Outdoor Timbers – Material durability and a new approach to installing decking and screening
In this session we’ll explore and discuss the durability of timber, timbers qualified for BAL 29 including the recent recognition for Jarrah and Karri, and the use of adhesives to fix decking and screening in under half the time of a traditional top fixed system.

Presenter: Tim Sherry – Product and Supply Manager, Auswest Timbers.

Presentation 2: Specifying timber finishes for exterior applications 
Timber is an extremely popular substrate but to maintain its attractive appearance, most timbers need to be coated.  There are a wide range of coatings available, this presentation is designed to give you more confidence to specify the right coating by explaining the benefits of coating timber, what to consider when choosing a coating and coating longevity and maintenance.
