The softwoods used for fencing timbers are sourced from responsibly grown well managed forests. Being a natural material, made from cells of sugar and fibre, softwood timbers can be susceptible to rot and decay organisms as well as insect attack. Modern wood preservatives are designed to make the most of and protect softwood timbers in a wide variety of end uses, but particularly those in high hazard applications such as in ground contact (UC4 – Use Class 4 – EN 335).
The wood preservative Tanalith E is forced deep into the vulnerable sapwood cells of the softwood timbers under a proven high pressure treatment process. The resulting preservative treated timbers are high performance products with assured long term protection against decay and insect attack. The incising also allows a deeper and more consistent penetration of wood preservative into this important zone of confidence. The resulting preservative treated timbers are high performance products with assured long term protection against decay and insect attack.
TANALITH E is a tried and tested copper based wood preservative from Lonza with high performance credentials, particularly for ground contact timbers. The next generation TANALITH E used incorporates patent pending BARamine technologies. BARamine brings advanced distribution of the preservative into the timbers as well as helping to protection against certain copper tolerant brown rots which can attack timber and produce even more assured.
The quality of the preservative treatment process is recognised through the Arch Treat-Right accolade and by the Wood Protection Association (WPA) Benchmark as an accredited high performance product.
