Living in Colour

Natural timber panelling remains a source of great character in many interiors. Whatever the trends in interior colour schemes there is still a demand for the colour and warmth of timber. Rentokil Sentone Timber introduces Douglas Fir solid timber suitable for both commercial and domestic interiors and exteriors.

The nature of the tree when grown in volcanic pumice soils is such that the overall grain structure stands out in relief are processing. The various finishes, one of which is a special water repellant coating for exterior and another, a durable furniture lacquer finish; a third, a flame retardant finish, enhance the timber and promote the blending of colour between the light, early wood and the hard, dark late wood.

Sentone Timber is available in one basic natural timber colour, as shown here, which reveals the full tonal range. Thus this panelling represents a closely as possible the natural character of the tree without the application of artificial colour.

The colour, surface texture and rugged nature of the Douglas Fir are the characteristics which combine to appeal to many designers. In addition to being available in shiplap, T & G and square boarding Sentone process is offered in solid and laminated beams for structural situations where exposed members are required.
