Build with Confidence.

Specifically designed to protect Hyne Frame from termite attack in areas south of the Tropic of Capricorn, Hyne T2 Blue continues to gain momentum as a preferred structural softwood building material. Providing consumers with confidence and security for their new home or renovation, Hyne T2 Blue has a 25 year guaranteed protection against structural damage by termites.

These days, builders understand their clients concern about the security and structural integrity of their home, with more and more builders choosing Hyne T2 Blue to provide that additional level of protection against termites. Being non toxic to all mammals, Hyne T2 Blue is totally safe to handle and off-cuts are easily disposed of to landfill.

Termite Resistant Framing

For architects, designers and specifiers, the knowledge that Hyne T2 Blue is extremely low cost means that specifying it makes great sense for their clients. Hyne T2 Blue is a H2F level treatment which complies as a termite resistant timber as specified in the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

Timber merchants and truss and frame manufacturers can simply nominate Hyne T2 Blue as part of the allocation of Hyne Frame available from Hyne Wholesale.

Hyne T2 Blue is produced from renewable resources protecting our environment for future generations.
