    Preservative Treatments

    We can offer various preservative treatments, e.g. against biological decay (wood-destroying organisms such as insects and fungi) or against fire. The most substantial form of treatment we supply is against biological attack this treatment is based on the durability of the timber used and an assessment of the risk of decay or insect attack.

    Not all softwood timbers used in timber frame construction that are slightly durable ( durability  Class 4) and not durable (durability class 5) need to be biological treated (tantalised).

    Treatment / treated timber is essential for:

    • Sole plates
    • Any timber resting on the damp proof course
    • Timber cavity barriers in external cavity walls
    • Timber in cold design flat roofs
    • Cladding / boarding fixing battens
    • Tiling battens
    • Timber cladding depending on applications

    The below is recommended for insurance purposes

    • Joists in suspended timber ground floors
    • Loadbearing timber external wall frames

    It is important to note that the Building Regulations (Regs) in England and Wales require all softwood roof timbers in specific areas of England to be treated against attack by the house longhorn beetle.

    Biological preservative treatment is commonly known as tantalised timber (wood-destroying organisms such as insects and fungi) , e.g. Vacuum Pressure Treatment with various waterborne timber preservatives, e.g. based on the copper triazole technology, include ( Tanalised) Tanalith C, Tanatone, Tanasote, Shades, Tanalith Creol, Tanalith BARamine, MicroPro Micronised Copper, Microshades, Wolsit®, Wolmanit Celcure AC500, Micropro, Aquatan, Tanalith Extra and Low-pressure treatments include Vacsol Resistol, Protim ( from manufacturers such as Arch Lonza, Osmose Koppers, BASF Woolman. Treated to the following;-

    Chrome and Arsenic FREE, environmentally friendly treatment for Decking, Cladding/boarding and Construction timber.

    In the UK some organisations are concerned with the performance of treated timber normally based on British timber treatment/durability Standards and have specific treatment requirements either for regulatory reasons or warranty conditions these include;-

    • UK Building Regulations
    • National House Building Council (NHBC)
    • Highways England
    • BT/Openreach
    • Distribution Network Operator (DNO) Companies/National Grid
    • National Highway Sector Scheme (NHSS)

    Available in treatment classes according to EN351-1 (European Safety Standard) and CTB-P+ (FCBA) :

    • Use Class 2 (UC2)

    • Use Class 4 (UC4)

    Available in treatment classes according to Nordic NTR standard :

    • NTR-AB.
    • NTR-A.

    The Service life of pressure treated timber is from 15 up to 30 years depending on the treatment class.

    Available in Green and Brown colour.

    It is essential to ensure any treated timber that is cut, trimmed, notched out, drilled etc after pressure treatment, you need to retreat the cut sections with an appropriate preservative

    Surface Spread of Flame Fire Retardant  /(Resistant treatment)

    In instances where fire reaction to fire ( Fire resistance) is required, this can be supplied as an extra over option depending on the quantity, prefered product and end-use, e.g. internal and external application. For Example, fire treated cladding will need to confirm to the appropriate standard in Europe mainly to the European Harmonised British Standard – BS EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009

    Fire classification of construction products and building elements. Classification using test data from reaction to fire tests, Timber will need to meet the appropriate class, e.g. Class B or Class C or (Class D assumed most timber in the natural form)

    Alternatively, in some areas BS 476-7:1997 Fire tests on building materials and structures. Method of test to determine the classification of the surface spread of flame of products for fire classification Euro Class 1 or 0 – part 6 and 7

    Some products are available on the market, e.g. Arch Chemicals Lonza – Non-Com,  Dricon or Osmose Koopers Fire X Fire Pro PTG Treatments Sentrin FRI and FRX
