GenDECK™ (ACQ H3.2 treated timber) is a new standard in decking timber available now exclusively from Western ITM in Auckland. It's better for you and better for the environment!
WHAT IS GenDECK™ | GenDECK™ is treated with ACQ (a waterborne, Alkaline Copper Quaternary preservative) an arsenic and chrome free alternative to using CCA treated timber. The AQC preservative system was developed to provide long-term protection of wood exposed in exterior applications and is particularly suited for use in many backyard and commercial projects such as decks, fences, furniture and landscaping.
When you use ACQ treated timber for your project, there will be minimal leaching of chemicals out of the timber into the environment around you. This creates a pine timber that has similar advantages to hardwoods, bringing pine back into mainstream construction.
APPEARANCE | Initially GenDECK™ has a greenish appearance; this will weather to a honey brown colour before fading to a driftwood grey after exposure to the elements. GenDECK™ is ACQ treated timber and can be painted or stained to match most outdoor colour schemes. Always follow the paint manufacturer’s recommendations.
