M&M Timber Develops Exclusive SolarGuard Posts

Leading timber products manufacturer, M&M Timber is offering long life fencing for solar farms with the introduction of their new SolarGuard posts. Following overwhelming demand from fencing contractors the new SolarGuard posts have been exclusively designed to cater for the growing need for quality, durable fencing for solar installations.

Protect your investment: install secure fencing and avoid costly disruptions

There are now over 465 solar farms in Britain – with investment in renewable energy escalating over the last decade as farmers, landowners and entrepreneurs look to source a reliable income stream and Government seek to increase the UK’s renewable energy capacity. The installation of solar energy is a huge capital investment and costly to repair – so methods to protect, strengthen and secure solar farm perimeters is fundamentally important. Often spread over very large areas of open land and located miles from any public areas, installations can be vulnerable to theft and vandalism, as well as to damage caused by incursions of wildlife such as deer. Fencing using bespoke SolarGuard posts can help to deter trespassers and minimise the risk of damage. Solar cells are installed in interconnected arrays; if one is damaged or stolen it can affect the whole line, considerably reducing output and your bottom line.
M&M Timber has been a leading authority on fencing timbers for more than 30 years. They have invested heavily in specialised manufacturing and processing plants to ensure products reflect the latest in technological advances and remain at the forefront of an increasingly changing market.

Unique design for maximum security

The bespoke SolarGuard posts offer long life performance and are ideal for remote or extreme locations. Each post features a scientifically designed incising process for increased protection – a virtual ‘zone of confidence’ – at the critical area where the post is at most risk of decay. The incisions allow deeper penetration of the Tanalith E wood preservative to provide more effective and consistent defence. M&M Timber is able to offer a full 15 year warranty on SolarGuard posts – and for extreme locations a 30 year in-service lifetime warranty is available. With three times the life-span of conventional fencing timbers, the natural looking machined round SolarGuard posts offer real economy in terms of renewable fencing labour costs and materials.

Fraser Hall, Sales Director at M&M Timber commented;

When investment is made in solar energy, protecting and sustaining that investment is the number one priority. Our SolarGuard posts are a bespoke design to provide maximum protection. They are 4 way pointed for ultimate stability, each post is tagged for traceability and their bulky specification helps to deter theft. We pride ourselves on offering an efficient, reliable service – quotations can be turned around within 24 hours and we offer nationwide delivery straight to the site with mechanical off-load. We are confident that the SolarGuard posts offer everything in terms of longevity, durability and protection that will secure solar investment.
