Southport Venetian & Marina bridge

We had tendered for a contract to supply bespoke spindle & curved hand rail sections, these were to be supplied in the original design to replace the old spindles & curves on Southport marina.  The marina bridge was built originally around 1930 & it as stood the test of time. Originally the build was to be offered up in either Cedar or FSC Iroko and although both these timbers were good timbers to use, they also were not without issues. Cedar was one of the timbers of choice, however due to the spindles & handrails requiring bonding along with the time scale moisture in the material made this process of using cedar a bit risky.

Background

b2ap3_thumbnail_faberge_big_egg_hunt_2014_fragile_zap.pngAccsys Technologies is a public traded company traded on the stock exchange in London & Amsterdam. They have developed a product called Accoya, Accoya was originally a timber species from the Southern Hemisphere in particular from New Zealand and the timber in its original format is called Radiata pine. The timber is plantation grown & generally has wide growth rings, this as allowed the material to be the perfect timber to modify. It is valued on plantations for its fast growth & utility as both a source of construction lumber as well as wood pulp for the paper industry.

Accsys technologies are part of a major investor group who have taken fast growing radiata pine in its standard format and turned the timber from a traditional wood with all its susceptibilities to decay, movement & other defects associated to traditional timbers to a modified engineered piece of timber with a life time guarantee. It will not rot or twist when in contact with all extreme elements of normal day to day weather conditions.

The process of acetylation transforms hydroxyl groups to larger, inert acetyl groups, reducing water absorption of the cell wall. Acetylation merely changes the balance of naturally occurring chemicals in the wood.

A dado rail is a wooden moulded rail that runs around a room at waist height. They are often painted the same colour as the skirting board and architrave. A dado rail can be used to split the wall in two sections, allowing for two colours to be used or for you to use wallpaper and a colour on the same wall. Dado rails can be used to fool the eye into thinking the room is larger, by using a strong colour at the bottom and a lighter one above, which makes the room appear to open out.

An architrave is a timber moulding that sits around a door frame window or around a loft hatch. It is a decorative wooden trim which hides any shrinkage in the surrounding walls and ceilings, or warped edges. When fitting a timber architrave around a door, you will need three lengths of architrave, with one horizontal piece to sit over the top of the doorframe, and two vertical legs or jambs for the sides. The corners are usually mitred at 45 degrees to allow the pieces to sit together without a gap.

Fitting skirting boards is a way of re-energising a room that needs an update, or an essential part of a second fix in a DIY project. Fitting a timber skirting board is not a difficult task for the experienced DIYer, and is even straightforward enough for those new to DIY, saving you approximately £150 in fitter’s fees per day.

Having recognised the need to develop new business we are happy to announce some new exciting ideas launched in a range to complement our range of standard handrail components.

How many times do you look at a traditional mop-stick or pig’s ear handrail to see the product cut off or unfinished? We have set out to offer a solution by developing radiuses, components & fixing to complement these products. Dresser have therefore introduced into the market place these in both softwood & hardwood timbers.

Product development does not stop with the introduction of new handrail radiuses, later this year our research & development team are currently developing the idea of extending our existing curved market by introducing curved corners for external cladding although in the early stages of research we hope to offer Architects, specifies some new ideas for the use of cladding both externally & internally.
