ETH MAGNA MERBAU
BUSH FIRE-RESISTING TIMBER
After the devastating fires around the country last Summer, (that’s right last summer!!!!! before 2020 handed COVID-19 to us) the rebuild is now well underway. The supply chain has experienced surges in demand across numerous building products that fit the Bush Fire Zone requirements. One of the most common questions surrounding the well known Merbau specie is the request for information to pass on to a certifier that includes the ever popular Laminated Magna Merbau “Look for Red Ends”! ETH Magna Merbau GL Beams / Posts and DAR Boards supplied by Meyer Timber are suitable as bush fire – resisting timber. The attached technical note (below) now makes your life easier and can be passed on to builders and certifiers as needed.
Remember when it comes to Laminated Merbau…………………..“Look for Red Ends”.
The Meyer Timber Family and Staff would also like to take this opportunity to pass on our thoughts to all the Victorian members, suppliers and FTMA staff for your efforts through this second lock down. Keeping your businesses enthusiastic, functional and there to support all of industry is a credit to you all. Special mention should go to Kersten and her ongoing swift action and information readily available for us all……………often well before other industry notices. Well done and thanks!
