Pressure Treated Fence Panels:
Pressure treated timber has been put through a specialised timber treatment. Pressure processes are the most permanent method around today in preserving timber life.The timber is placed in a large vacuum, large quantities of wood preservative is put into the vacuum. This timber treatment is then forced into the timber and will impregnate the timber deep in its grain. This treatment protects the wood for a long time so pressure treated timber does not require annual painting like dip treated wood. Pressure treated timber is more expensive but in the long run it can save you money.
Main Benefits of Pressure Treated Fence Panels…
The special treatment the wood goes through does not just sit on top on the timber but goes deep into its grain. This protects the wood against rot and makes it ideal for outdoor use. The treatment will protect the timber against rot caused by water or wet weather.
Pest and Mould Resistant:
The chemical used in the treatment of pressure treated timber repels wood moulds. The chemicals used are toxic to moulds so they cannot feed on the timber.
When fence panels are placed in or next to the ground they can often be damaged by water or rot. The moisture from the ground or soil can penetrate the wood. Pressure treated timber can withstand this water and moisture. It will withstand being put in the ground and survive for a considerably longer time compared to dip treated timber.
