PTG TREATMENTS

01. Timber Frame: Strong, durable and one of the most popular ways to build sustainable, low carbon buildings from residential homes (including self-build) to social housing and commercial buildings. The precision factory-engineered timber frame acts as the super-structure with superb thermal and acoustic performance levels. 02. Structural Insulated Panel Systems: Consisting of two parallel faces – usually Oriented Strand Board – with a rigid core of Polyurethane (PU) foam or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) inside, Structural Insulated Panels are a contemporary, cost-effective and energy efficient solution to a wide range of building types and can provide airtight floors, walls and roofs.


TIMBER EXPO 2014 < EXPLORE

03. Flooring & Decking: Solid, engineered or laminate, timber brings a natural and elegant element to any interior and wooden flooring is recognised as a hard wearing product for most building types. Decking is now also one of the most popular ways to bring a durable flourish to any exterior and is now a staple of many home DIY, retail and commercial settings. 04. Glulam & CLT: Aesthetically attractive and providing large span structures with lots of natural light, glulam is a strong and sustainable alternative to concrete or steel beams. Made from layers of parallel timber laminates glued together, glulam sections are now frequently used in the construction of all types of building including supermarkets and swimming pools. See page 8.

05. Timber Protection: Coatings and treatments help timber perform to its maximum potential and even help it improve its performance parameters. Treatments which make wood resistant to fire, moisture, mould, termites and fungi are taking timber usage to higher levels of sophistication. 06. Fastenings & Fixings: Timber systems and components can only do their jobs correctly if used in conjunction with high performance screws, plates, fasteners and connectors. These are items designed and manufactured for very specific and highly specialised tasks to bring the best out of every timber and wood-based product.

Cladding: Timber cladding delivers a highly attractive and durable external finish to all kinds of building type and offers architects and designers a practical, renewable and recyclable way to provide a building envelope. Cladding material is available in a wide range of species, specifications and treatments to meet any performance requirement. For a full list of exhibitors visit: www.timber-expo.co.uk

The 100m2 space will be split into six key areas and demonstrations will include fire door installation, timber strength testing, timber window security testing, timber species identification, timber grading and timber window acoustic performance. There will also be a dedicated seminar theatre where the BM TRADA team will deliver a series of presentations and surgery sessions across the two days of the show.

Sponsored by Vandecasteele, this co-located event within Timber Expo has been a successful and dynamic part of the show since Timber Expo’s inception, giving attendees the opportunity to hold face-to-face discussion with prospective new clients and business partners in a formal but relaxed environment. With a wide remit and attracting an increasingly diverse range of those involved in the specification and design of timber products and systems, the Forum will still operate in the same format as in previous years and offers a superb way to focus and maximise your networking and business opportunities during a busy event.

The Structural Timber Association, representing all forms of structural timber from timber frame to CLT and SIPS to Glulam, is delighted to be associated with Timber Expo and looks forward to its continued growth and prominence as the use of structural timber increases and the UK construction industry becomes better informed and more sophisticated in its drive towards a more sustainable future.” Andrew Carpenter / Chief Executive / Structural Timber Association

“Probably the best line up of timber experts ever assembled,” said Mike Jeffree, Editor of Timber Trades Journal, of the 2013 Timber Expo speaker programme. “Timber Expo has grown both in size and stature and the move to the NEC last year, gave the event a truly international feel in terms of both exhibitors and visitors.
