Timber Treatments

As part of the manufacture of all our fencing and landscaping products ETC Sawmills preservative pre-treat our timbers within our own on-site facilities using Lonza's next generation TANALITH E 8000 wood preservative to ensure the resulting next generation TANALISED timbers will have a greatly extended and low maintenance service life. As a minimum all our timbers are treated to a 15 year desired service life specification.

When it comes to preservative pressure treated timber, you need to have assured confidence in its long-term performance and durability.

The TANALISED pressure treated timber we supply is unique. It has been treated with next generation TANALITH E 8000 wood preservative - an exceptional and proven product, which provides unrivalled protection for your timbers.

More than 20 years of successful commercial use, in addition to extensive independent field trials, underpin the performance of TANALITH E 8000 wood preservative.

Next generation TANALITH E 8000 has all the properties of the original TANALITH E but also now incorporates patent pending BARamine technology from Lonza Wood Protection. This provides an even more robust protection allowing greater penetration of the wood preservative into the timber as well as protecting against certain copper tolerant brown rot organisms.

Use Classes

Timber can be preservative treated to suit the degree of hazard it is likely to be subjected to in its eventual end use. These Use Classes are defined in BS EN 335-1 and are shown in the table below. All our fencing timbers are treated to either Use Class 3 Uncoated (out of ground contact) or Use Class 4 (in ground contact).



Quality Treated Timber - the choice is yours

To ensure our customers have the widest choice of products, ETC Sawmills offer both a standard ETC SAWN range of preservative treated fencing timbers - posts, rails and gravel boards and an ETC INCISED range of square sawn, incised and pressure treated ground contact fence posts timbers backed by a 15 year Treat-Right performance warranty. Both are available in a choice of standard pale green or rich brown preservative treatment.

Standard SAWN Range

Manufactured from quality home grown mixed species these timbers are manufactured to our high standards and have a professional next generation TANALITH E preservative protection built-in to give an extended service life. However, our SAWN range of timbers is not incised and does not carry a performance warranty.

Ask us for more details about sizes and products in the SAWN range.

INCISED Range

To offer this new premium product ETC Sawmills has invested in the very latest EXCALIBUR incising technology. This innovative development produces a regular and aesthetically pleasing surface incision, even across surface knot areas, which allows a deeper and more consistent penetration of the TANALITH E wood preservative into the timber.

ETC INCISED posts can be supplied either part or fully incised along their length, they also carry our distinctive heat brand to show the year of supply.

15 Year TREAT-RIGHT WARRANTY

The use of next generation TANALITH E 8000 wood preservative, together with the quality timber species we use and our production procedures, including incising technologies, allows us to offer a 15 year performance warranty on our ETC INCISED range of fence posts.
