Timber Species

There is nothing like the look and feel of timber. The grain and texture of timber adds warmth and depth to a project and is a feature building material in architectural designed homes, commercial projects and government buildings and public spaces.

At CUTEK®, we believe timber is the star. Our products are designed to celebrate the natural beauty of wood and powerfully protect it to extend service life. Many of our staff are timber experts and have spent decades in the timber and construction industries. We understand the characteristics and nuances of native and imported timber species and love to share our technical expertise.

There is an enormous variety of timber species available and each of them offer a unique charm made up of different grain patterns, colours, and performance characteristics.
