Sustainability & Manufacturing

Timber is the ultimate renewable resource and all Weathertex products are made from 97% hardwood and 3% paraffin wax. Weathertex primed products are finished with a water-based lead-free acrylic primer. All Weathertex boards are manufactured using waste timber sources from Australian, PEFC-Certified harvesters. No old growth hardwood is ever used, os there’s minimal environmental impact and the depletion of natural resources is avoided. Weathertex is the only product of its kind in the world to contain absolutely no artificial glues or binders.

No toxic or polluting chemicals are required when making Weathertex products. The manufacturing process of all Weathertex products minimises waste through resource recovery systems. This includes creating compost, using the offcut board as fuel, creating briquettes and using it as packaging. Weathertex’s on-site water management system is unique and highly sustainable, it reduces water usage by ensuring processed water is treated and recycled.

Like most timber products, Weathertex can be reused/repurposed for various usages. – other construction applications, recycled into packaging, used as fuel or turned into compost. Even in landfills, Weathertex does not rot/break down, so the carbon stored in it will remain contained indefinitely.

LESS THAN ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT

More carbon is stored in the timber used to make Weathertex than is produced during its manufacture, which is why it has a better than zero carbon footprint. In this regard, Weathertex is unmatched at this price-point making it the natural choice in the changing global environment.
