Due to the disruption caused to the supply chain by the Covid-19 Pandemic, there are significant lead times on certain products. In particular, concrete fencing products, garden buildings including sheds, and certain timber products. Delivery on some items is up to 6 weeks. Please check with us before placing your order if your project is time-sensitive so that we can advise up to date lead times. There is a certain amount of information on the product pages, and your confirmation email will indicate your likely lead time once you have placed your order. Items that are in stock are generally being delivered within the normal 5-10 days.
Using specialist machinery prior to treatment, a series of incisions is cut into the ground contact area of the timber allowing for far greater preservative treatment uptake.
What is the High Pressure Treatment Process?
Once incised, posts are put through our Tanalith High Pressure Treatment Process.
Where is it used?
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.
