WoodSolutions Series: Webinar Four

WoodSolutions Series: Webinar Four

Join us for this CPD webinar presented by National Supporting Corporate Partner, WoodSolutions Australia. 

AILA and WoodSolutions have teamed up to co-host a 5-part webinar series focusing specifically on landscape architects and their use and specification of wood products. Featuring industry expert speakers, we cover a range of key topics including timber as a resource and its positive carbon benefits in a zero-emissions future world. We also explore timber durability, timber preservation and external finishes, the use of wood in bushfire prone areas, as well as case studies of some of AILA member’s flagship landscape architectural projects.

Webinar four: Timber Preservation and External Finishes. With Jack Norton - Timber Protection Specialist, Gareth Connell - Cabot’s - Premium Wood Care Brands

Not all wood is ‘naturally durable’, and ‘naturally wood weathers’. To preserve and protect our wood, and/or wood product look externally, it often requires some type of treatment or finish.

A number of wood treatment processes have been used since before the time of the Egyptians and new modern, environmentally responsible treatment products are constantly being developed. Timber protection specialist, Jack Norton, will explain this important topic, discussing the different hazard (H) treatment levels, the preservation products currently available, and the key points around design, specification, and maintenance.

Keeping wood looking good is the professional speciality of Gareth Connell, the National Specification Manager with Cabot’s Premium Woodcare Brands. Gareth will give you the ‘good-oil’ (pardon the pun), with his ‘External Timber-Coatings-101’ overview on the different timber finishing systems available for external wood products, the best finishing product to specify for different applications, and how to care and maintain them for optimal performance.

If making sure timber continues to perform and look good in external landscape architectural applications is your professional aim, then this webinar is a must see.
