Haldane UK has demonstrated its experience and expertise in timber technology by manufacturing Accoya timber columns for the refurbishment of a Victorian property.
The columns taper from 200mm diameter to 150mm with bespoke 250mm turnings fitted to each end to achieve a finished size of 2.2metres.
Accoya Timber is a modified softwood which offers outstanding durability and stability to rival or exceed the best tropical hardwoods.
Its unique properties can reduce swelling and shrinkage by over 75% whilst offering superior resistance to UV degradation – making it ideal for exterior use, especially for projects requiring a paint finish.
And from a machining perspective, the consistency of quality and the stability throughout the timber, makes it an excellent material to work with.
