Neptune Court House - Surfers Paradise, Australia
This subtropical coastal environment in Queensland, with high levels of ultra violet rays, demanded a high performance exterior timber.
Thermally modified Vulcan Screening was perfect in this application, known for its durability and superior weathering characteristics.
A 65x42 batten was used, secret finger-jointed to achieve a 6m long batten.
The screening is finished in Protector Oil Patina, which is designed to silver off into a low maintenance weathered grey.
The timber contrasts well with natural stone used on project. The battens are exceptionally straight, meaning minimum fixings were required - even over the window cavities with large unsupported spans.
