Finnish Whitewood is the lightest of all Tilling architectural products. This timber’s fine, even grain and delicate blonde colour convey the understated elegance and raw beauty of Scandinavian styling.

Tilling Finnish Whitewood linings have a reputation for quality, using only Nordic Soft Wood Grade A raw material, which is the highest grade available.

Installation 

Remember…

Timber is a unique material – one made by nature, not by man. Much of timbers’ warmth and beauty is derived from its distinctive appearance, and specific characteristics naturally developed during the growth cycle. Because it has a cellular structure, even kiln seasoned timber will respond slightly, exhibiting minor dimensional movement, over Australia’s diverse range of seasonal climatic conditions.

In order to ensure a satisfactory installation of Tilling Timber interior lining, the following points should be observed.

Storing on site

Lining should be stored in a dry, protected area. If stored on unsealed ground, place lining packs on bearers to give a minimum 200mm above ground clearance until ready for use.

ACCLIMATISATION

All Tilling Timber interior linings are kiln seasoned to an “Equilibrium Moisture Content” not greater than 15% and no less than 8%. The lining boards are sold shrink wrapped to ensure protection during delivery and prevent moisture uptake. As each installation varies slightly from the next, it is advisable to allow the lining boards to acclimatise to their new environment.

To do this remove the plastic wrapping and separate the boards so that they have free air flow on both sides and leave on site for 24-48 hours before installation.

Note- Lining boards should not be unwrapped or fixed during periods of excessive dampness.

FINISHING RECOMMENDATIONS

Due to the high risk of adhesion when applying polyurethane finishes in situ it is recommended that pre-finished linings are purchased. If you wish to apply polyurethane finish on site it is highly recommended that such finishes are applied PRIOR to installation.

Particular attention should be accorded to the effective sealing of end grains of boards prior to installation. Any nicks or chips caused during subsequent installation can be lightly touched up in situ.

If finishes are applied after installation then take care to brush off excessive finish from tongues and in grooves to minimise the high risk of board-to-board bonding which can result in splitting the boards caused by the restraint of normal timber movement.
