Wooden Gate Treatments
 
 
 
 
TANALISED E pressure treated timber has been high pressure impregnated with TANALITH E preservative, a waterborne product based on copper triazole technology. TANALISED E pressure treated timber is usually specified for both in and out of ground contact applications where there is a medium to high risk of decay or insect attack. TANALISED E pressure treated timber has a natural green colouration.
 
 
 
 
TANATONE pressure treated timber has been high pressure impregnated with TANALITH E preservative containing a built-in brown colouration. TANATONE pressure treated timber is usually specified for fencing and landscaping applications, eliminating the need for brush applied colour at the point of installation. This has a natural brown colouration.
 
 
 
 
Unfortunately Tongue & Groove gates cannot be Tanatone or Tanalised E Pressure Treated. This is due to warpage of the tongue's and the groove's of the timber swelling in the pressurised tank.
 
The best possible way of keeping untreated timber maintained is to apply a spirit stain of at least 3 coats every two to three years to stop any flaking of the stain you have already applied. UV protect spirit stain is the most suitable for untreated timber and by no means is any water based treatment suitable for untreated timber what-so-ever.
 
We recommend using Sadolin Classic Wood Stain Protection or Ronseal. Spirit stain can be purchased from your local DIY store.  It is only suitable to stain and preserve any timber products purchase from All-Gates UK Limited before any installation in taken place - It doesnt have to rain to allow moisture to enter the timber itself.  Before treating, store in a cool and dry place reducing any chance of moisture entering the timber.
