Sponsor: Fence and Forget.
Some 8 years ago we, like others, saw there was a problem with fence posts rotting off after only a few years. It was found that back in early 2000 some key chemicals were withdrawn from use in the treatment of fence posts and other timber. This change, combined with a poor choice of species of wood (ie spruce), had a dramatic negative effect on the lifespan of fence posts.
In the course of studying what treatments were already proven to last we settled on utility poles. We knew they had a long proven life expectancy and so decided to follow this same route in both the species of wood used and the treatment process. The timber we use is imported from Finland and The Baltics. It is all redwood pine which takes up the treatment better and is very slow growing which makes it stronger. All the timber is dried to 28% moisture and then treated under 11 bar pressure with hot to boiling creosote for 8-12 hours. Using this combination you get a fence post which is expected to last 30-70 years.
We now stock a wide range of timber in 35 different sizes. We also stock fencing wire, motorway crash barriers and reclaimed utility poles, so covering all your fencing requirements.
An expansion to this successful line in creosoted posts is a supply of plastic posts, steel posts and a new generation of redwood tanalized posts also now guaranteed to last 30 years. This has come about to suit those not wanting to use creosoted products, or for use in unsuitable locations for creosote.
Our aim remains the same - to only deal in quality long life products. We understand the work and costs involved in putting up fence so why not make it last. In other words.........Fence `n` Forget!
