Creosote has been trusted and used for over 150 years. Creosote has a proven ability to significantly improve the service life of timber used for various purposes, from utility poles, railway sleepers and fruit growing supports to fencing posts, strainers and struts. Creosote is the treatment of choice for equestrian fencing as it deters the tendency horses may have of chewing on the timber. Other uses that may involve frequent skin contact (inside buildings, playgrounds, domestic fencing and leisure facilities) are not permitted.
Our timber is dried and then pressure treated with commercial strength Creosote at 100°C, this ensures an optimum penetration of the Creosote into the timber significantly increasing its durability and lifespan.
