Timber Fire Resistance
…-Protect your granny flat, timber cabin or cottage from fire, white ants, and wood rot …
Spruce Pine is not pine wood
You wouldn’t spend your hard-earned money on one of our Cottage Creations granny flats, cabins or cottages, unless you know that it will stand up to the elements that our sometimes WA harsh environment can throw at it. Fire tests, white ant tests for your cabin is extremely important.
Western Australia is known for its often windy and fire prone areas. We want to ensure your investment is SAFE; and that Cottage Creations endeavour to ensure that by treating our Spruce Pine Timber
Our Cottages, granny flats and cabins are all treated with Timbersafe.
These granny flats and studios and cabins are made out of tongue and groove spruce pine and treated with Ultralast Timbersafe.
The two videos show you western red cedar being burned at 800 degrees. In one f the videos the wood has been treated with Timbersafe, in the second movie, it has been untreated. The tests were run for 15 minutes. The fire test results are astonishing.
Spruce Pine wood, often called whitewood, is used for many purposes, ranging from general construction work to highly specialised uses in wooden aircraft and many musical instruments, including guitars, mandolins, cellos, violins, and the soundboard at the heart of a piano. The Wright Brothers’ first aircraft was built of spruce. !!!
