Kiln Dried Redwood
All the raw material for our PRO-POST range is sourced from the forests of Europe. This includes slow-grown Redwoods, which are treated to Use Class 4 ground contact standards (EN335-1) to meet the requirements of BS8417 and give excellent long term performance, even in the most challenging of environments.
Ellpro Timber uses the latest generation TANALITH wood preservative in our high pressure treatment facilities to produce our range of high performance fencing timbers. TANALITH is a unique formulation product from Lonza Wood Protection with many years of tried, tested and proven performance in markets around the world. It provides an advanced long term protection against the threat of wood decay and insect attack, especially for ground contact timbers.
Our PRO-POST products are continually tested to ensure they meet the precise standards required to retain the Treat-Right accolade.
Testing, as shown in the steps below involves taking UC4 treated samples and analysing with the use of X-ray Fluorescence Spectometry.
The data produced informs us that the samples meet requirements.

The sample is oven dried and precisely weighed.
Preperation of sample ready for analysis by X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (XRF).
