CASEMENT

-

Binq Casement Windows come with concealed adjustable hinges which means with the turn of a spannel we can ensure your window operates smoothly for years to come, and it has continuous German rubber gaskets that help the window to seal like a fridge, keeping any cold drafts out in winter.

Vic Ash

Bushfure Rating: BAL19

 

Properties

  • Density: 675-770kg/m3 at 12% moisture content; 1.3 to 1.5m3 of seasoned sawn timber per tonne.

  • Strength groups: S4 unseasoned, SD4 seasoned.

  • Stress grades: F7, F8, F11, F14 (unseasoned); F11, F14, F17, F22 (seasoned) when visually stress-graded according to AS 2082—2000: Timber—Hardwood—Visually stress-graded for structural purposes.

  • Joint groups: J3 unseasoned, JD3 seasoned.

  • Shrinkage to 12% MC: E. regnans—13.3% (tangential), 6.6% (radial); E. delegatensis—8.5% (tangential), 5.2% (radial); E. oblique—11.3% (tangential), 5.1% (radial).

  • Unit shrinkage: E. regnans—0.36% (tangential), 0.23% (radial); E. delegatensis—0.35% (tangential), 0.22% (radial). E. oblique—0.36% (tangential), 0.23% (radial). These values apply to timber reconditioned after seasoning.

  • Durability above-ground: Class 3.

  • Lyctine susceptibility: untreated sapwood of E. delegatensis and E. obliqua is susceptible to lyctid borer attack; untreated sapwood of E. regnans is not susceptible; normally marketed as a mix of the 3 species; therefore, classed as lyctid susceptible.

  • Termite resistance: not resistant.

  • Sustainability

    • 100% is sourced from regrowth forests

    • 100% is regrown.

    • Before harvesting, all flora, fauna, silvicultural, historical and cultural aspects are surveyed, plotted and allowed for. Source.

    • The harvesting process is scientifically designed to mimic natural growth pattern of Victorian Ash species to ensure regeneration occurs within an organic cycle. Source.

    • Less than 0.05% of the forest area is harvested each year on an 80 year rotation. (Yes, that decimal point is in the right place). It is then regenerated.

    • Only 6% of Victoria’s total forest area is both suitable and allocated for harvesting and regeneration on an 80 year cycle. These areas are scattered throughout the state to minimize and spread impact. Habitat trees are protected with protection zones varying in size depending on the animals requirements. 70% of the Victorian ash forests are in National Parks and reserves. Source.

    • The seed mix of each harvest is collected and re-planted in place of harvest to maintain diversity. Source.

    • 100% of each log we receive is used. E.g. Off-cuts are finger jointed to make structural timber and sawdust used as a green energy solution to power our kilns. Source.

    • Up to 50% of the weight of kiln dried Victorian Ash is actually stored carbon (320kg per cubic metre approximately). This is far more helpful for life-cycle assessment and embodied energy considerations than other building materials or soft woods. Source.

FINISHES

-

Our Timber products can either be Raw, Primed or Stained. Our low VOC staining material is imported from Germany and specifically designed for Timber Windows and Doors. To ensure that all areas of the timber are coated, all finishing is completed prior to any glass or hardware being fitted.

Finishing consists of a four part process.

Prepping

Each unit is bogged, puttied and sanded to ensure that the finish is soft, smooth and consistent.

Priming

The priming (base coat) of the unit by dipping it into a staining tray, which penetrates the timber and treats for rot an infestation, then the unit is hung to try in a controlled temperature enviroment, which generally takes 24 hours.

Re Prepping

Once the unit is dry, it's lightly sanded to ensure that an even and consistent finish is achieved throughout.

Top Coat

It then progresses into the finishing line and the top coat is applied by a spray gun at approximately 400 microns thick (equivolent to 3 coats of paint). The unit is then placed in the drying room which again is at a controlled temperature enviroment.

GLASS

-

 
Windows with standard glass provide little to no insulation properties, and are the thermal weak point in buildings. In an average home, 40% of heat loss and 87% of heat gain is through inefficient glazing*.

An energy efficient window helps minimise the use of artificial heating and cooling, and makes the most of the natural climate resources. Insulglass IGU units are an essential component to minimise the need for artificial heating and cooling, reducing heat transfer by over 50%.

Utilising energy efficient glass has many benefits:

  • Comfort levels: it will be naturally cooler in summer and warmer in winter, internal drafts and condensation is reduced

  • Energy savings: lowered cost for conditioning spaces with artificial heat and cooling

  • Less greenhouse emissions: with a lower load impact on artificial heating and cooling, there is less energy output and reduced emissions

  • Noise reduction: filters out significantly more noise than standard glass
