Protected against rot, decay and insect infestation in one of two ways:
1. Dip treated – The timber is submerged in protective treatment tank. This water-based treatment will need to be re-applied throughout the life of your gate usually after 6 months and every year thereafter.
2. Pressure treated – Protective treatment is injected into the timber at high pressure, providing a longer-lasting treatment usually with a slightly green tint. It will need to be treated with a good quality standard preservative after approximately 12 months and yearly thereafter.
