Pressure-treated timber provides long term protection against fungal decay, rot and insect attack but does not prevent weathering and corrosion.
You will see an option on many of our fencing products, for example, to select Pressure Treated timber. This is a timber that has been treated in a vacuum with the latest generation TANALITH wood preservative. This renowned preservative gives a proven, outstanding performance, particularly for timbers intended for use in wet conditions.
The process involves placing the timber into a treatment vessel using a vacuum & hydraulic pressure to force the TANALITH preservative deep into the structure of the timber. The resulting timber such as garden fence panels or timber fence posts often has performance warranties of up to 15 years.
Please see the pressure treatment video below;
Pressure-treated timber with TANALITH can be used with confidence in both above-ground and in-ground situations including construction, fencing, landscaping and engineering applications. When working with pressure-treated wood, we always suggest you wear gloves, eye protection and a dust mask when handling the wood. Also because of the preservatives in pressure-treated wood, it should never be burned.
We also supply HC4/UC4 certificated timber, which is ideal for wooden fence posts and wooden gravel boards as UC4 timber is certified for ground contact. This provides additional protection against rot, decay and insect attack for longer-lasting fences.
Challenge Fencing have an extensive range of pressure-treated fence panels, fence posts and gravel boards available in the most popular sizes.
The treated timber is often light green in colour and is well suited to environmentally sensitive applications.
