Interim Industry Standard Recycled Timber – Visually Stress Graded Recycled Decorative Products

Interim Industry Standard Recycled Timber – Visually Stress Graded Recycled Decorative Products

Recycled wood has many aesthetic and environmental benefits but until now there has been no grading standard for recycled timber being used in both structural applications and non-structural decorative timbers. These Interim Standards provide recycled timber manufacturers, suppliers and users requirements for visually grading recycled hardwood timber intended for use in both structural and decorative applications. It is intended that after a period of application and use, the Interim Standard will be reviewed and amended, and then will be submitted to Standards Australia for consideration for development as a formal Australian Standard.
