timber supplier Touch Wood Trading introduces Latte Poles made from an
Australian hardwood to create a sustainable, durable and beautifully organic
solution for textural screening, fencing and cladding applications.
Grandis, also known as Rose Gum or Flooded Gum is an Australian hardwood native
to NSW and South East Queensland but has virtually disappeared. This fast
growing species is now grown in FSC-monitored tree farms in South Africa,
providing many communities with an opportunity for fair trade on the international
Poles, available from Touch Wood Trading in Australia offer several advantages
in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Apart from their striking appearance
with beautifully long, straight grain, Latte Poles offer ease of installation
and come in a choice of thicknesses and lengths to suit the application. The
long straight grain of the timber means it will not canker or split when
screwed or nailed, nor is it prone to warping.
Poles have a colour palette ranging from white creams through soft greys to
light rose, making them the right fit in minimalist architectural designs as
well as rustic themes. The timber is long-lasting too, with its natural resistance
to insect attack, mould and weathering allowing the original beauty to be enjoyed
for 20 years and more.
Latte Poles are available from 25mm to 150mm in diameter
and lengths up to about four metres.
