Benefits of Treated Fencing Posts

Treated fencing posts stand as the cornerstone of enduring and resilient construction. WoodChem Traders Ltd understands the significance of these posts, offering a myriad of advantages that resonate with both durability and low maintenance.

Durability Beyond Comparison

Our treated fencing posts boast an extended lifespan that surpasses that of untreated alternatives. Through the meticulous pressure treatment process using Copper Chrome Arsenic (CCA), these posts exhibit remarkable resistance to decay, wood-boring insects, and the harsh ravages of diverse weather conditions. This treatment serves as armour, shielding the wood from the relentless forces of nature, ensuring it endures through the years.

Low Maintenance for Long-term Value

WoodChem’s treated fencing posts represent an investment in longevity and long-term value. These posts require significantly reduced upkeep over time. Unlike untreated counterparts that may succumb to rot, decay, or pest infestations, our treated posts stand strong, minimizing the need for costly replacements or repairs. This low-maintenance attribute translates into lasting peace of mind and cost-effectiveness for our customers.

Superior Quality and Features

Our treated posts exemplify superior quality and craftsmanship. Crafted from eucalyptus grandis/saligna, carefully harvested and treated to meticulous standards, these posts embody strength, reliability, and resilience. The pressure treatment process using CCA ensures that the preservatives penetrate deep into the wood, providing a robust shield against decay and insects while locking the preservative into the cellular structure of the wood. This reinforces the structural integrity, enhancing its longevity and performance.

At WoodChem Traders Ltd, our commitment to delivering unparalleled quality in treated fencing posts is unwavering. Our posts offer not just reliability but an assurance of longevity, making them a cornerstone of enduring and robust constructions across diverse applications.

Quality and Features

Our treated fencing posts are a reflection of our unwavering dedication to quality. Harvested from eucalyptus grandis/saligna, these poles undergo a meticulous treatment process involving Chromated Copper Arsenate (CCA).

The infusion of Copper, Arsenic, and Chromium effectively fortifies the wood, ensuring its longevity and resistance against adverse conditions.

The CCA treatment method employed by WoodChem Traders Ltd adheres strictly to environmental safety regulations while meeting the Kenya Bureau of Standards and international specifications. It’s essential to note that the CCA treatment, while effective in fortifying the wood, is conducted responsibly and in accordance with recognized environmental standards. The treatment process ensures that the preservatives penetrate deeply into the wood, providing lasting protection, without compromising environmental safety.
