High quality wood
Vanuatu Homes uses high quality timber for the above ground exterior and for ground contact. We build with timber which can endure tropical heat, moisture and extreme weather and seismic events. Our timber is also termite-resistant.
We meet the high standards of NZ and Australia, ensuring a minimum of H5 timber (piles are resilient against severe decay hazard risks where severe or continuous wetting may occur) and H3 (resistant to moderate decay situations where timber is not in contact with the ground)
Our buildings can usually be structured using either Triboard or timber frame, if the customers does not want concrete.
What is Triboard?
Triboard is a three-layered panel timber system with a wood strand core sandwiched between an MDF outer skin. The result is a clean-lined panel that has high resilience and impact resistance and greater stiffness than other similar products. The dimensionally stable core provides superb load bearing and screw holding, and the MDF surfaces give a smooth finish for painting or overlaying. This innovative combination of smooth surfaces with inner strength makes it ideal for a wide range of internal structural and non-structural applications – panel housing, structural walls, floors, fire rated doors and inter-tenancy walls, solid core doors, bracing panels, bench tops and shelving.
Triboard passes the most stringent building standards. It has the superior inner strength and stability of Strandboard™, with the smooth surface of medium density fibreboard. Triboard is available in a variety of panel sizes, thicknesses and densities.
Timber frame and Triboard best suit structures with wide openings, especially in living areas.
