Recycled Australian Hardwood
At Australian Streetscape we utilise Certified
Recycled Australian Hardwood in the manufacture
of a number of our furniture products due to its environmentally friendly
attributes, durability and character.
Typically, the Australian Hardwood species
we use scores above 10.0 (Very hard) on the
Janka Hardness rating which makes them ideal for applications in high
This compares to Jarrah which scores 8.5 and Kwilla which scores 8.6.
Note: The Janka hardness scale is a universally accepted measurement
for the relative hardness of any timber.
We source our timber through a world class
recycling facility where it is batched,
machined and inspected and once received by Australian Streetscape we
have a second
internal quality process which ensures a common grain and texture on
each specifc project.
Some of this timber is reclaimed from
landmarks and therefore adds character to the new products in which it is formed
Each batch of furniture is supplied with
a “Letter of Timber Origin” giving details
of the previous life of the timber.
