Sustainability

Prolam timber is sourced from NZ sustainable Pine Forests. Timber acts as a carbon store and plays an important role in reducing carbon emissions.

Warranty & Returns

Visually Exposed Prolam Sealing Specifications.

Visually exposed Prolam must be undercoated or sealed within 14 days of installation.
Timber naturally absorbs moisture from the surrounding environment. This can cause the
product to alter dimensionally and cause resin bleeding, distortion and cracking.
Sealing the product with a good paint or stain system reduces the incidence of dimensional
change and increases longevity.
When using Posts inground, the portion of the post that is to be in-ground must be sealed
with a moisture-resistant coating prior to installation.
Recommended procedure
1. Fill nail holes with an exterior grade wood filler.
2. Sand back until surface is smooth and completely free from dirt and dust.
3. Painting: Apply a single enamel undercoat and then apply two full topcoats
compatible with the undercoat. Painting is to be carried out in accordance with
best practice: 1 x undercoat and 2 x topcoats to achieve a total DFT dry film
thickness) of 80 microns, comprised of undercoat DFT 30 microns, topcoat DFT 25
microns/coat).
4. Staining: Apply 3 coats of premium oil-based stain, including cut ends and joints.
CD50X or Dryden’s Penetrating wood oil are some recommended oils. Recoat
every 12 months.
Products must be applied as per manufacturer’s instructions.
NOTE: Dark colours are not recommended. These will make the timber move more with
environmental changes which may cause resin bleeding, distortion and cracking to occur.
Prolam should always be painted or stained with colours with an LRV greater than 45%.

NO WARRANTY APPLIES TO ANY PRODUCT THAT HAS NOT BEEN KEPT DRY
OR HAS NOT BEEN SEALED AS RECOMMENDED ABOVE.

We will gladly assist with returns and exchanges of this product in accordance with our returns and exchanges policy.
