Whitepd’s 2.7m flats are constructed from responsibly sourced, PSE redwood timber. A mixture of 2×1 and 2×2 are used in the panels and all joints are glued and double screwed. Frames are constructed to detailed CAD plans with a +/- 0.5mm tolerance. Timber is double checked for length and defects and all parts are stained black prior to assembly.
All flats undergo an assessment and servicing process when they return to the warehouse from site. Panels that do not make A-grade are checked to see if they meet B-grade standards. If a panel has too many small defects or any single large defect it will fail and be quarantined. Flats that pass as A or B grade it will then be serviced, packed, labelled & stored ready to go out. Set flats in the quarantine area first have their framework checked. If they are not too worn they will be stripped, serviced and recovered. At that point it will be an A-grade panel again. Frames that are past their best are stripped of fabric and then disassembled. The timber is then transferred to our lucky-timber stock that is used for on site bracing and consumables.
