A specification was created utilising a PEFC certified NORclad European Redwood. Koppers MicroShades “Brunnea” treatment was requested to offer a formal warranty on the product for 30 years against rot and fungal decay (out of ground contact), along with a good level of colour stability VS traditional untreated species.

To create depth on the project the two profiles supplied were a combination of Ex 38 x 75mm, which was machined to finish 32 x 70mm. Combined with a thinner Ex 25 x 75mm board which was machined to finish 20 x 70mm.
