Preservative treatment provides wood with added durability. However, it’s a mistake to assume that all pressure-treated wood is the same. Whilst one piece of treated wood may look very much like any other, the level of preservative protection could be very different. That’s because the British Standard for wood preservation – BS 8417, requires that the loading and penetration of preservative, impregnated into the wood, is tailored to the desired end use.

Factory-treated wood allows timber products to be installed immediately, however regular treatment and care is strongly recommended. Further treatment will help to maintain the timber and increase its life expectancy.
