ACQ Treated Pine
Vs
CCA Treated Pine

ACQ indicate the use of Copper and Quarternary Ammonium compound to protect against fungi, termites and other wood-boring insects. It is similar to the performance of CCA treated pine which used a Copper Chrome and Arsenate compoud.
Very few place retail ACQ timber and it is often a lower grade timber.

Is treated pine safe

YES. There have been no reported side affects of CCA timber and there is a wealth of information about it on the internet. Alternatives like ACQ treated pine are merely a precaution.

Do we use CCA treated pine with arsenate or ACQ

We ultimately build with the products that the client requests. ACQ (F5) timber has more knots and is of a lower grade quality than CCA (F7) timber. ACQ It is less readily available and is 'greener' so it will shrink and twist a bit more than CCA timber.

Colour Choices

We use Cabot's oils, stains and polyurethane because they have been proven over time to be of the highest quality.
Fresh sleepers with their original high moisture content are treated with Cabot'sAquadeck water based decking oil.
Kiln dried pine products are stained with Cabot's oil based deck and exterior stain. The colour chart can be found at:
http://cabots.com.au/product-detail/1303/deck-exterior-stain-water-based
Dressed red gum sleepers can be treated with Cabot's polyurethane in a gloss or matt finish. Ideally 3 coats.

What is meant by heavy duty

All our furniture is built to a commercial grade. Some items are simply large for cosmetic reasons. We may alter a design for specific reasons but always ensure they are constructed to last. Refer to our "heavy duty guide."

What are the standard table and bench offsets

Refer to our bench and table heights and offsets.

What are primary school size tables

To cater for smaller primary school children, we make a range of picnic tables that have lower their seats and table tops. Adults can still use them but they are ergonomically more suited for children.

How heavy is a solid hardwood picnic table

The answer depends on the size and profile and timber type of the table.
A lightly sanded 'E' profile 2.4m long 'A' frame table in ironbark will weigh approx 260kg, the 1.8m long table will weigh 215kg.

The same tables in treated pine will be approx 40% less

Table Anchorage

Tables can be anchored with their legs imbedded into the ground or dynabolted to concrete
