Superior Look

LIGNIA has the colour hue of a dark hardwood and machines incredibly well. Therefore, LIGNIA creates a clean consistent look; suiting projects from traditional, to contemporary architecture where performance is paramount.

Application

At approximately 650kg per m3, LIGNIA has a density suitable for many applications, from yacht decking to technical cladding profiles – where performance is key.

Durability

LIGNIA has a maintenance free service life, due to the modification process (50 years minimum life against rot and fungal decay). LIGNIA is BSEN350:2 Class 1.

Stability

LIGNIA is very dimensionally stable (tangential movement 0.58%; radial movement 0.68%). Therefore, LIGNIA performs very well with Millworks in-house coatings to any RAL colour.

Grades

  • Millworks LIGNIA Clear & Better

This grade of LIGNIA is of the finest quality with minimal defects showing a limited amount of knots. This results in a consistent, near flawless look. Kiln dried, flat sawn with an interesting random grain configuration.

Weathering or finishing

In the correct conditions, LIGNIA will weather to a silver-grey, if left untreated.
Although naturally durable, LIGNIA an be finished for protection against the elements. This will keep it looking consistent on all elevations of your project. Millworks can advise on different options for protecting your timber.

Coatings can be applied under controlled factory conditions with Millworks state of the art finishing line. Alternatively, on-site products can be advised and supplied.

Off-site (factory applied) coatings

  • Flawless finish under factory conditions for outstanding UV protection.

  • Wide range of colours available.

  • Coating to all 4 sides for increased durability and stability.

On-site (hand applied) coatings

  • On-site weather variation, time-frames and application rate eliminated.

  • Lead-times are not guaranteed due to on-site variables.

  • Unexpected hidden costs

Fire Retardant for Timber

FRX Exterior fire retardant can be applied to LIGNIA when specified, to comply with national Building Regulations where Euroclass B or C are required. Applied under controlled conditions in a vacuum pressure timber impregnation plant. The treatment complies with ISO accreditation, which does not compromise critical properties such as strength, durability, corrosivity and hygroscopicity.

Fixings

Stainless-steel cladding fixings should be used because natural properties in the timber have a corrosive effect on ferrous metals.
