Slow-grown European Redwood timber is used for the production of the posts. A colder climate means slower growth, producing a higher quality of timber. Our posts are treated in the uk, with the full sapwood penetration giving each post a lifetime of over 40 years.
The timber is dried to below 28% moisture before treatment, creosote is then heated to around 90 degrees and applied under pressure of 3 bar. Creosote has a life expectancy of at least 40 years and the colour of the treatment can vary from a light brown to an almost black colour.
*HEALTH AND SAFETY*
Creosote can react with the skin and burn therefore when handling any creosote product (liquid or coated) you must wear the appropriate protective equipment, for example gloves, and avoid touching other surfaces after handling creosote until cleansed of any creosote residue.
