Vulcan Joinery - Vertical Grain

With patented vertical grain technology, this laminated, thermally modified joinery timber delivers superb stability throughout the years and can be either paint or stain finished.

Timber joinery has made a comeback in modern homes, due to its wellness and sustainability benefits as well as its naturally warm look and feel. An excellent choice for windows, doors and interior joinery in both paint and stain finish.

Vulcan Joinery - Vertical Grain is created from thermally modified New Zealand plantation timber and engineered with a vertical grain construction for superior weathering characteristics.

The thermal modification process combined with lamination means Vulcan Joinery has enhanced stability, reduced resin content, is a beautiful homogenous brown colour, and is naturally durable so does not require any chemical preservatives.

Customisable and available in a variety of sizes, we supply various lengths of joinery timber from 2.1m - 4.8m, ready for joinery craftsmen to work with.
