Hardwood Timber Boardwalks from Outdoor Structures
Outdoor Structure Australia's largest selling product range is its hardwood timber boardwalks. There are two main styles based on the superstructure - driven piles or bedlogs, both of which are illustrated.
The section dealing with timber boardwalk design covers in detail the choice of the footing style. While the superstructures are standard, it is strongly recommended that the footings be designed for each application. This can either be done by the client using the extensive technical Information in the design page or by us.
Engineering is charged at our cost and we are happy to quote the engineering for your project anywhere in the world.
Ideally, a site visit should be made. If this is impractical, we can design and certify your boardwalk if supplied with soil tests, track layout and site photographs.
The working drawings are prepared by James Pierce, one of Australia's leading timber engineers (E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org) and utilise the latest in timber design and treatment.
A materials takeoff estimate is prepared and quoted and can be supplied anywhere in the world.
Our timber sizes take into account the mechanical damage caused by some fasteners as well as giving attention to maximising the recovery from the sawlog.
This gives a boardwalk that is truly environmentally responsible as it will reach its maximum potential life reducing damage to the habitat while minimising the impact on the habitat from which the timber is drawn. Australian Spotted gum is not a rainforest timber and most is cut from state forests which are logged on a sustained yield basis.
The boardwalks are supplied either fully assembled, pre-cut, or mill lengths only. When driven piers are used the variability of pile placement usually require the timber be supplied in mill lengths only.
Comprehensive assembly instructions have been prepared which outline the best practice to be adopted in the construction of our structures.
