At Timberfix, we are taking steps to ensure risk is minimised to staff and customers, with extensive disinfecting of surfaces, frequent hand sanitisation and also the investment of an electronic fogging machine, for the most efficient method of sanitisation of our extensive stock holdings facility. These practices are reviewed daily based on the available information at hand.

Our quality Hand Sanitiser is manufactured and bottled in Australia, available now for purchase (subject to availability). We are working in with our suppliers daily to secure more stock. Also available is our range of disinfectants, and other hygienic products.

Toilet Paper, a highly sought after product is coming into stock periodically and we are working in with our supply chain to source as much as possible, as frequently as possible. Our primary supplier is working 24 hour shifts currently to produce, slit, wrap and box.

Timberfix is supporting Australian manufacturing where ever possible.

We are also still able to support your business with the supply of the essentials in hardware, fasteners, safety products, site supplies and custom signage.

Signage is especially popular right now, with the Government rules in relation to Covid-19 safe practices being updated regularly. Ensure your site is actively promoting these rules and practices. We have a range of signs specifically catering for Coronavirus site rules. Contact us to learn more.

  • RUSPERT® coating provides excellent corrosion protection.

RUSPERT® ( Patent No 1526310 and 1570203)

The amazing metal finish is a high-grade metal surface processing technology that prevents corrosion. It consists of three layers: the 1st layer: a metallic zinc layer, the 2nd layer: a high-grade anticorrosion chemical conversion film, and a 3rd outer layer; baked ceramic surface coating. The distinguishing feature of RUSPERT® is the tight joining of the baked ceramic surface coating and the chemical conversion film. These layers are bonded together through chemical reactions, and this unique method of combining layers results in rigid combination of the coating films. RUSPERT® treatment does not attribute its anti-corrosion properties to merely a single material, but the synergy of these three layers, which combined have superb rustproof qualities.
