Timber Treatment

lospTimber is one of the world’s oldest used building materials. It is a renewable, naturally occurring material – unique in a world of synthetic and composite building materials.

Today, timber is sourced from sustainably managed forests and is one of our most environmentally friendly building materials. The wide distribution of timber, its ready availability, variety of uses and relative ease of handling and conversion, have all contributed to its wide acceptance in the building industry.

Timber used in outdoor environments and in high moisture conditions can be subject to attack from natural enemies such as fungi, insects, and weathering. Where protection is required, timber durability can be enhanced through the addition of preservatives.

rougher-header-vPreservative treated pine is timber that has been impregnated with chemical solution containing two major components; fungicide and insecticide. Because the preservatives are forced deeply into the wood, treated pine has long term resistance to decay, insects and other wood destroying organisms, outliving many naturally durable timbers in exposed conditions.

This effective and lasting protection of pine enables it to be used in many applications where untreated pine is not suitable such as;

  • Pergolas
  • Decks
  • Cladding
  • Retaining walls
  • Posts and poles

As such, treated pine is a highly versatile material suitable for a wide range of applications.
