why intalok

Intalok buildings withstand the worst of nature while you enjoy the best of it.

All Intalok buildings are fully engineered and held together by our unique interlocking building system, which has been designed with extra strength and durability for New Zealand’s shaky seismic conditions.

Until now, the perception of solid wood homes has been tarnished by the loud cracking noises caused by changes of temperature contracting and expanding the timber. Intalok has solved this problem with a special 50mm cavity created by the pre-stressed method using interlocking pins and battens. This cavity is filled with extra insulation which not only gives added warmth, but also acts as a perfect buffer against changes in temperature. The result - no cracking noises.

The internal pine walls are held together by interlocking steel pins driven into the boards at wall and post intersections.

Threaded steel rods are hidden within the walls and tightened to give Intalok the incredible strength and durability. This also prevents creaking.

The special battening system between the interior and exterior walls produces an insulation cavity for extra warmth and energy efficiency.

Our Engineered Timber

At Intalok we produce all our own laminated beams and posts.

Our certified New Zealand Standards processing plant is audited regularly so you can be assured that any product coming out of the Intalok factory is of the highest standard and quality.  We can produce engineered laminated products for many applications including lintels, exposed rafters, ridge beams, bridge beams and engineered portals.

It addition to laminated products our factory has the capability to produce dressed timber, exterior weatherboard, finger jointed timber, fascia board and many other specialist products.

Timber is the only renewable building resource on that planet and is flexible, durable and environmentally friendly for all types of buildings. From coast to country, residential to commercial – timber provides a building solution tailored to your requirements.

Our Partners

Houses have been built from wood since the first day man felled a tree. As the world looks for an alternative to the finite resources consumed worldwide, Intalok knows it has already found a winner and with over 1.2 million hectares growing throughout New Zealand, it is our most widely grown renewable resource.

The NZ Wood programme promotes growing forests and using wood in a sustainable, responsible way for us, here, now, and for generations to come. The entire NZ Wood programme is founded on research evidence, industry consultation and commitment.
