Pressure treated timber

Our wood products are pressure treated - a thorough process, which involves the following: The wood is transferred into a treatment cylinder. A vacuum pump removes the air from the cylinder before the treatment solution is the added. The solution consists of water and preservatives that are designed to help protect the wood from fungal decay and termite attack. A pump will increase pressure in the cylinder and force the treatment solution into the wood. After the final vacuum cycle, the cylinder is opened and the pressure treated wood removed.

We supply both treated and untreated timber. Most of our wooden products are CCA treated. Other treatments available on request.

Coal-tar creosote is the most widely used wood treatment today; both industrially, processed into wood using pressure methods such as "full-cell process" or "empty-cell process", and more commonly applied to wood through brushing.

CCA treatment

Chromatid copper arsenate (CCA) is a wood preservative that has been used for timber treatment since the mid-1930s. It is a mix of chromium, copper and arsenic (as Copper(II) arsenate) formulated as oxides or salts, and can be recognised by the greenish tint it imparts to timber.

Boron treatment

Borates are diffusible and may be applied on freshly felled timber by brushing and spraying or pressure treatment. Active ingredients diffuse into wood using moisture available in wood or moisture brought in by insects like termites.

Treated Poles are an environmentally friendly product as long as they are not used to kindle fire or disposed of incorrectly. Cut wood retains the carbon it has absorbed which lowers the carbon emissions in our atmosphere. Worldwide foresters are committed to planting more trees that are used which makes it a renewable raw material that is good for the environment.

There is a scientific method of applying the Creosote and CCA to the wood to make it leech resistant and safe for use. The way in which it is applied fixes into the wood so that it is highly resilient without leaving people or the environment vulnerable to the chemicals used. There have been no known health problems related to the use of CCA and Creosote treated wood since its use began six decades ago.

Only misusing treated wood and timber (like burning it for preparing food or for domestic fireplaces for example) leads to unhealthy exposure that can pose health risks. It is important to distinguish that there is a difference between the chemicals that are used to treat the wood before and after treatment. Before treatment these chemicals are dangerous; after treatment, they are fixed into the wood and non-toxic unless burnt.
