Q 1. Where would you normally use a treated timber wall plate ?
As a decorative end support post, perhaps on a balcony or verandah.
Q 2. What is it made out of ?
Plantation grown Radiata Pine that has been H3 treated (suitable for above ground use).
Q 3. What are the important dimensions ?
Overall : 1345mm Height x 112mm Width x 54mm Depth
Length of top square : 835mm
Length of turning : 510mm
Q 4. How should you finish it ?
A water based primer/undercoat is not a necessity (although it wouldn’t hurt), but at least 2 coats of the final colour is a must.
Leaving it unfinished, oiling it or using a clear lacquer is not recommended.
