About Softwood Treated Pine Decking
Treated pine decking is a very popular choice in Australian residences as new or replacement decks. It has been used over a long period of time and has proven to provide dependable protection against termites and decay to extend the life of your structure. Preservative treated, it is easy to work but handling and construction should observe specific Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS) depending on the preservative used.

Treated pine decking is Radiata Pine that has been treated with one of various types of preservative to increase the natural resistance to attack by wood destroying fungi and insects. This process results in an enhanced level of durability which makes the timber suitable for exterior use. A service rating known as the Hazard Level Guide rates the hazard protection required based on exposure from H1 being the lowest, to H6 being the highest. The 'H' level of durability should correspond to its intended application. In decking it is usually H3.
