We pressure preserve treat our timber using Lonza’ Tanalith ® or Tanatone® to ensure our customers receive a durable long life product.

Balcas are proud to offer our customers further assurance on our dried, incised, treated Fence Post Material by offering a 15 year performance guarantee.

Balcas Permapost Performance Guarantee

Following treatment, any areas of treated timber revealed by cross cuts, holes, notches, should be brushed with ENSELE end-grain preservative.

Timber which is rip sawn, equalised, planed or heavily sanded must be returned to the treatment plant for re-treatment.

On no account are fence posts to be pointed after treatment. The shortening of posts and columns should be avoided. In any event, cross cutting must be restricted to the top of the post or column and cut ends of fence posts must not be placed in ground contact.
