Queensland’s tropical Stradbroke Island forms the perfect backdrop for a stunning architect-designed home renovation featuring Cambia Ash from Britton Timbers. The Cambia thermal modification process has been applied to resilient American Ash hardwood to enhance the properties of the wood to add dimensional stability and decay resistance.

Cambia is the perfect choice for timbers that are used in humid conditions. Cambia limits the ability of the wood to absorb moisture which means an extended life for finishes applied to the wood and less maintenance. The Cambia thermal modification process also acts as a barrier to wood-destroying insects and fungi, without the use of toxic chemicals.

Cambia Ash has been used extensively throughout the Stradbroke Island home and its dark, uniform colour and beautiful grain works superbly with the architect’s vision for a modern, functional beachside residence. Cambia’s thermal modification process can be applied to a variety of species including American Ash, Red Oak, Maple and Tulipwood, all 100% FSC ® (FSC-C113479) certified.

It can be used to great effect as decking, cladding and flooring and in the case of the Stradbroke Island home, Japanese inspired joinery to add a modern oriental feel to the interior (joinery supplied by Duce Joinery).

Britton Timbers is one of the largest importers of American hardwoods into Australia and the exclusive supplier of Cambia thermally modified hardwoods.
