Japan Zairai - Ground Sill
Dodai from Interfor is graded specifically for sill plate where bending strength and compression properties are of prime consideration. Hemlock’s proven strength and excellent treatability have made it the preferred species for sill plate components in Zairai home construction. Pressure-treated Hemlock delivers a high measure of protection against insect attack and decay.
Sizes are 90mm x 90mm, 105mm x 105 mm, and 120mm x 120mm, and come in lengths between 2.4m and 4.0m.
Available kiln dried or green.
