Specifically designed for use in ground contact (i.e. fence posts, sleepers, decking joists and posts etc).
What timber is used?
PermaTimber is produced using UK grown FSC Certified Spruce, as well as some Larch and Douglas fir. This means is comes from well managed and sustainable sources
Has it been independently tested?
PermaTimber products have been independently tested by the BRE who concluded that they meet the requirements for BS8417 (2011) for a desired service life of 15 years.
Is it value for money?
The majority of cost when installing timber products is usually labour costs. If timber has to be replaced earlier than expected this can be time consuming and costly. Therefore, PermaTimber products represent great value for money when considering the whole-life cost of your products.
