This new design guide has been produced to make it easier for architects and builders to understand timber battens spans and fixing methodologies when using our sustainable Vulcan timber.

In this Timber Screening Guide:

  • Why Vulcan is the optimal timber for timber screens
  • The key design considerations when detailing timber batten screening

Abodo’s Vulcan Screening is a high performance natural exterior timber engineered from thermally modified New Zealand plantation timber and then laminated to achieve a unique vertical grain.

This enhances stability and durability of the timber and allows excellent spanning capabilities, allowing design possibilities previously unseen with many traditional timber species.

A key advantage of Vulcan Screening is the ability to create section sizes that are larger and more reliable than other solid timbers.
