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.
    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.
    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.
Finishes

Our Timber products can either be Raw, Primed or Stained. Our 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

About the
Seller

Established in 2009, BINQ is a privately owned Australian company who's influence comes from travelling the globe researching the most advanced window systems, machinery and manufacturing techniques.

Expanding its business and operations to a national, recognized brand, BINQ has two manufacturing plants located in Melbourne, Victoria, with a combined floor area of over 3,000m2, and is now Australia's largest high-performance window manufacturer.

As things have evolved, our core company values are built on solid foundations of integrity, trust, a high focus on customer service, driven by providing value, and delivering high quality products made from quality workmanship.

Our customer service is geared to exceptional standards at each touch point of the customer journey, with responsiveness being the critical driver right from the first touch point, through the sales process, to scheduling and production and after sales services.

With solid project planning, automated machinery, advanced manufacturing techniques and highly skilled joinery technicians, we consistently meet deadlines, whilst maintaining a high quality of workmanship.

Our diverse product offer consists of timber and uPVC window systems catering to a range of both residential and commercial markets in Australia, specializing in high-performing, thermally efficient, architectural window systems.

Windows have tradionally been viewed as a utilitarian product where a designer has designed a hole in a wall for a window to be installed into, whereas we view windows as much more than that. We view windows as the most important element in a building that has a dramatic impact on the design, aesthetics, functionality, liveability, and performance of a home.

We've always been very focused on the tupe of business we want to be and the type of busienss we want to be known for and it's this clarity that continues to drive the busienss everything day.

Regardless of where we've been throughout the journey, one thing has stood true. 'To raise the standard in the industry by giving customer unequivocal excellence in product and service, at honest prices', which has become the mission of the business.

At ArchiPro we recognise and acknowledge the existing, original and ancient connection Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have to the lands and waterways across the Australian continent. We pay our respects to the elders past and present. We commit to working together to build a prosperous and inclusive Australia.
