Tanalised Timber

Tanalised Timber

All our workshops feature the next generation tanalised timber

All our buildings are manufactured using the latest generation Tanalised E pressure treatment.TANALISED E pressure treated timber has been high pressure impregnated with TANALITH E preservative, a waterborne product based on copper triazole technology. TANALISED E pressure treated timber is usually specified for both in and out of ground contact applications where there is a medium to high risk of decay or insect attack. TANALISED E pressure treated timber has a natural green colouration.

The Benefits of Using Pressure treatment include

• An established and proven alternative to traditional chromated/copper/arsenate (CCA) treated timber.
• Effective long-term protection against fungal and insect attack.
• Proven performance, widely used and accepted worldwide.
• Appealing natural green colour with excellent colour durability, blending perfectly with nature.
• Impregnated using vacuum pressure technology.
• Conforms to new European Standards and individual countries’ national requirements.
• Ideal for general construction, fencing, garden and leisure timber applications.

F.A.Q
1. What are the recommended areas of use for TANALISED E pressure treated timber?
TANALISED E pressure treated timber is suitable for use in, around and over ponds and lakes. However, where fish are present in garden ponds, we recommend that direct water contact is avoided. Whilst we are confident about the safety of TANALISED E pressure treated timber, fish are very sensitive creatures and may respond unfavorably to changes in their surroundings. Prior to use, you should ensure that the timber is in a dry condition; two weeks post treatment is usually sufficient time to allow for drying although this is weather and storage condition dependent. Please also ensure that the timber you use has been treated to the correct specification – Arch Specification Code TE/Gfa if the timber is to be used above ground (Use Class 3) and TE/GFb if it is to be used in ground (Use Class 4).
2. Can I use TANALISED E pressure treated timber around my fish pond? TANALISED E pressure treated timber is suitable for use in, around and over garden ponds. However, where fish are present, we recommend that direct water contact is avoided. Whilst we are confident about the safety of TANALISED E pressure treated timber, fish are very sensitive creatures and may respond unfavourably to changes in their surroundings. Prior to use, you should ensure that the timber is in a dry condition; two weeks post treatment is usually sufficient time to allow for drying although this is weather and storage condition dependent. Please also ensure that the timber you use has been treated to the correct specification – Arch Specification Code TE/Gfa if the timber is to be used above ground (Use Class 3) and TE/GFb if it is to be used in ground (Use Class 4).
3. Can I use TANALISED E treated timber for making bat shelters? Bat roosts and shelters are closely protected by conservation legislation. You must consult the Statutory Nature Conversation Organisation for your area (Natural England, the Countryside Council for Wales, Scottish Natural Heritage) before doing anything. The Bat Workers’ Manual, published by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee, provides initial guidance.
4. Can TANALISED or TANATONE pressure treated timber be used for the construction of bee hives? TANALISED E or TANATONE pressure treated timber is suitable for use in a bee hive. However, you should not use it for internal elements of the hive that will come into direct contact with honey. Prior to use, you should ensure that the timber is in a dry condition; two weeks post treatment is usually sufficient time to allow for drying although this is weather and storage condition dependent.
5. Is TANALISED E pressure treated timber safe to use in nature reserves and aviaries? TANALISED E pressure treated timber is suitable for use on a nature reserve or for constructing aviaries. Prior to use, you should ensure that the timber is in a dry condition; two weeks post treatment is usually sufficient time to allow for drying although this is weather and storage condition dependent.
6. Is TANALISED E pressure treated timber safe to use in children’s playgrounds? TANALISED E pressure treated timber is safe to use for structures in and around children’s play areas. With regard to any concerns that the children may ‘chew’ or ‘eat’ the treated timber, we have to conduct safety studies to demonstrate safe use of our products as part of their approval process. These studies have shown that the preservative within the timber would not cause harm to a child in the quantities that they are able to ‘eat’ or ‘chew’.
7. Is TANALISED E pressure treated timber safe to use for compost bins and earth retaining structures for organic vegetable beds? TANALISED E pressure treated timber is suitable for the construction of compost bins and for use as earth retaining structures for organic vegetable beds. The Soil Association (www.soilassociation.org) states that if the timber used for organic vegetable beds is preservative pre-treated then there are no issues in terms of organic status. If, however, the wood is treated once the raised bed has been built (brush applied preservative) then this would affect the status of the land
8. What makes a Quality Treatment? Preservative pressure treatments will significantly extend the service life of agricultural and fencing timbers by providing an effective protection against all forms of wood decay and insect attack. Carried out in industrial treatment vessels by trained operators, treatments use a proven process of pressure and vacuum cycles to impregnate the wood preservative deep and permanently into the timber cells.
