Biophilia: Timber for a healthier built environment
In Australia, timber is one of the most popular materials to use in construction and design. This is not only because of its functionality and sustainability, but also due to its numerous health and wellbeing benefits.
Timber's Performance Against Fire
As the world increasingly turns to timber in construction for the many benefits, there remains one characteristic of timber that needs further understanding. It is a common assumption that timber buildings perform poorly in fire situations due to the nature of wood. However, even though timber does burn, it actually has significant insulating properties and burns in a slow and predictable way.
Treatments and Durability
Preservative treatments can enhance the natural durability of timber by acting to deter wood destroying insects, such as termites and borers, and breaking down fungi spores that lead to wood rot. By using treated timber, builders and homeowners can cost-effectively improve the longevity of their homes while minimising the need for future repairs and replacements.
