This guide provides information to assist timber industry employees, timber users
and specifiers of timber to select members and structures with respect to their
service life requirements. The information provided has been derived from historical
performance and field and laboratory research and experience. The outcomes from
a 10-year multi-million dollar ‘world first’ research project to develop a probabilistic
durability design method for timber have also been incorporated in this publication
where appropriate.
The guide addresses in detail specific hazards with respect to the service life of timber
construction subject to the following hazards:
In-ground decay
Above ground decay
Weathering
Termites
Corrosion
Marine borers
More detailed information associated with timber performance for other hazards
including fire resistance and chemical degradation should be obtained from other
sources.
Better or more cost-effective performance is achieved with better knowledge. Thus,
it is expected that with time, this guide will be updated to reflect contemporary
knowledge and research outcomes. This may include coverage of alternative
preservative treatment processes such as ACQ, Copper Azole, and others, which are
now referenced in Australian Standards and State legislation.
This Guide is a complimentary publication to two other valuable timber durability
design resources that are outcomes from the Forest and Wood Products Australia
Durability Design Project completed in 2007.
