A growing number of sawmills and timber companies have recognised the concerns of farmers and fencing contractors over the perceived long term performance of preservative treated ground contact fencing and agricultural timbers. Because of this leading companies are starting to support the next generation TANALISED treated fencing timbers they supply to the market with the new Lonza Treat-Right Warranty. This new initiative will help bring real confidence to end users that they have made a considered and assured choice of the treated timbers they invest in around the farm or on fencing projects.
The Treat-Right Warranty is based around two key principles for the treatment companies producing the preservative treated timbers.
Firstly, the use of Lonza's next generation TANALITH E wood preservative within their treatment operation. Not only has TANALITH E got over 20 years of tried, tested and proven performance for the protection of fencing and landscaping timbers all around the world but the next generation product now being used by Lonza customers throughout the UK and Ireland also has added BARamine treatment technologies. This patent pending development from Lonza allows a deeper and more consistent penetration of the wood preservative into the timbers as well as protecting against certain copper tolerant brown rot organisms which can attack treated timber posts at ground level.
Secondly, the treatment companies must demonstrate that their preparation and actual treatment procedures are to the highest standards and are particularly relevant to the timber species they are treating and meet the appropriate industry standards for timber treatment.
