Australians regard forest products like timber, furniture, wood panels, etc. as a part of their everyday lives, and most of us love the bush. That is why the renewable forest industries as a group make up one of Australia’s largest resource industries. Management plans are prepared by foresters to ensure that harvesting is well managed and that other forest values are protected. The forest is permanently conserved by a sustainable harvesting and regeneration programme.
Gooding Timber and Hardware supports sustainable timber production, where the forests are managed by qualified foresters that adopt the principles of sustainable yield to produce a renewable resource while catering for a range of forest values.
There are a variety of products to choose from these days when building a new structure but timber is still a firm favourite. The environmental benefits of timber outweigh other products by far. Wood is the only truly renewable and sustainable building material. Timber is the most energy efficient building material because wood is made from solar energy and that’s all that’s required to produce a natural and renewable product.
A timber framed house actually stores about 3.1 tons of carbon. However the alternative building products such as concrete, steel, and plastic require a lot more energy and use of fossil fuels to produce.
We source a wide range of plywood and timber types at Gooding Timber and Hardware from various suppliers, including environmentally friendly plywood manufactured from Pinus radiata, using veneers bonded with products of a quality and grade that complies with the joint Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 2269. 0:2008 and PAA JAS/ANZ accreditation.
We can source and supply plywood suitable for general structural building and construction uses. It can be detailed to meet the requirements of the Building Code of Australia in relation to structure, durability, fire, moisture and energy efficiency. A wide range of sheet sizes and thickness provide optimal design flexibility.
Plywood flooring is available as a strong, durable pre-sanded panel available in a range of thicknesses suitable for use in structural and non-structural flooring.
