Beyond just good looks, timber is becoming increasingly attractive to architects, developers and builders with a focus on environmental awareness and sustainability. GOODWOOD by ASH comes from regenerated forests that are certified and controlled by the Victorian Government, and comes complete with Chain of Custody Certification for Certified Wood and Forest Products (AFS PEFC) which allows the product to be tracked from origin to end-use. Importantly we can ensure certainty of supply because ASH is also the largest hardwood sawmill in Australia processing 155,000 m3 of sawlog per annum in a modern and efficient operation utilising the latest in manufacturing technology.
Straight, stable and consistent.
Victorian Ash is considered a medium density hardwood comprising of two species, Eucalyptus delegatensis and Eucalyptus regnans which are visually identical and share very similar properties. grown in Victoria, Tasmania and New South Wales these hardwoods, including the Tasmanian oak are commonly also known as mountain ash and alpine ash. Colour naturally is pale pink to pale straw, and it will take stains or paints very well. Density is quoted as 680kg/m3 dry, with in service movement considered to be Low. It is quarter sawn, illustrated by growth rings being perpendicular to the face of the board when looking at the end profile. This creates a more stable product with an even and consistent grain. GOODWOOD is carefully air-dried and then kiln dried to an approximate 9-11% moisture content.

Beautiful. Strong. Durable
Perfectly answers your exterior timber needs.
Victorian Ash has never been considered durable enough to use in external situations. Exquisitely beautiful, yes. Affordable, yes. But too prone to
the weather to be practical? Until now that is, new IronAsh uses innovative technology to place a unique combination of water-based additives deep into the core of GOODWOOD Victorian Ash. Treated to H3 classification, IronAsh can now be used in any build to allow the continuous flow of timber design from inside to out. That’s why IronAsh is a great choice for your building project, being able to specify the same wood internally and externally now ensures a seamless beautiful finish and absolute customer satisfaction.

Guaranteed to perform.
IronAsh is the result of years of careful research by Australian Sustainable Hardwoods and their partners. The Tru-Core treatment process that creates this remarkable product has over ten years history of proven durability in the USA. With over 2 years of local research and development with Victorian Ash the preservative has been registered with the APVMA and a code mark developed for the True-Core process treated wood that exceeds the penetration required by the Australian Standards AS1604-1. True-Core is an environmentally responsible, water-based treatment that includes insecticides to combat pests and azoles to fight decay. It gets deep into the core of the wood so you can cross cut, trim and mitre without having to re-apply a preservative. ASH is so sure of their new IronAsh that it comes with a 25 year guarantee that it will exceed or meet all Australian “H3” standards for exterior timber decay and termites. IronAsh 25 Year Guarantee
