JSC WESTERN HEMLOCK BATTENS
Western Hemlock was selected for the Tauranga Crossing interior for its availability in long lengths, near-uniform pale straw colour, and stability in service due to its vertical grain structure. The cost saving over Western Red Cedar also offers advantages in large-scale commercial projects. This product has a Zone penetrating fire retardant, giving it a 1s fire rating.
