Protecting Buildings from Subterranean Termites

12. Protecting Buildings from Subterranean Termites

All buildings, building materials and building contents are subjected to a number of hazards throughout their useful life. These include corrosion of metal, spalling of concrete, fire and water damage. Another potential hazard is termite attack of some timbers and cellulose-based materials. There are two main types of termites capable of attacking buildings: drywood termites, which do not have ground contact, and subterranean termites, which require contact with the ground or some other moisture source. Subterranean termites are distributed throughout Queensland and are responsible for most of the termite damage of economic significance.
This data sheet provides information on how to reduce the level of risk of subterranean termite attack.

Residential Timber Decks Close to or on the Ground

13. Residential Timber Decks Close to or on the Ground

When designing and building timber decks where timber is less than 400 mm from or on the ground, considerations must be given to the following to ensure good long term performance:- adequate ventilation - surface grainag - correct timber species selection, access for future maintenance and termite control.

Species, Properties and Uses
Timber Floors Recommended Installation Practices

16. Species, Properties and Uses

Timber is an organic material with a wide variety of physical and mechanical properties. It is important that a timber species is selected which has the properties suitable for its intended use. The information should be used as a guide only as there can be significant variation within a species.

18. Timber Floors Recommended Installation Practices

This data sheet outlines the recommended practices for laying timber strip floors over timber and engineered timber joists (it does not include steel joists), structural sub-floors such as plywood, particleboard and concrete.

Timber Construction in Bushfire Prone Areas Outdoor Timber Performance

24. Timber Construction in Bushfire Prone Areas

This data sheet outlines the requirements for timber construction in bushfire prone areas in Queensland, as required by the State Planning Policy and the Building Code of Australia.

25. Outdoor Timber Performance

The satisfactory performance and life expectancy of timber used in outdoor applications is dependent upon a number of factors including:
• the type and level of hazard to which the timber is exposed
• the natural durability of the heartwood of the particular species
• the type and level of preservative treatment (if any)
• supplementary preservative maintenance (if any)
• protective coatings and their ongoing maintenance (protection from weathering) corrosive resistance of metal fasteners

Measuring the Moisture Content of Timber Moisture Effects on In-Service Performance

27. Measuring the Moisture Content of Timber

Checking the moisture content of timber prior to installation is important for many applications, including flooring, decking and lining, to ensure that subsequent movement (shrinkage and swelling) remains within accepted bounds. This data sheetprovides information on moisture in timber and outlines the various methods used to test the moisture content of timber. Also included in the data sheet is a method to evaluate the moisture content compliance of packs of timber.

29 Moisture Effects on In-Service Performance

This data sheet considers applications where movement associated with moisture content changes needs to be considered and should be accommodated for at the time of design, pecification and installation.
