FURTHER INFORMATION
TANALITH PRESSURE TREATMENT
All our timber is pretreated in bulk by the TANALITH process. It is placed in a sealed pressure chamber and the air pumped out, the chamber is then flooded with water-borne preservative. The valves all closed and the chamber is pressurised and maintained at high pressure for several hours. The chamber is then emptied and the timber left to drain. After a drying period the preservative becomes 'fixed' in the grain and the wood is now permanently, totally protected against all rot and insect attack. It requires no further treatment whatever to maintain protection although colour stains may be applied if desired. The specification we use for our treatment is that used by the Department of Transport for motorway fencing. The life expectancy of the timber is in excess of 25 years, it is clean to the touch, odourless, non-oily and will not stain other materials. There is no risk to humans, animals, plants or foodstuffs. As the preservative is already impregnated into the timber you will not have the labour or potential danger of hand- applied remedies. There are much cheaper preservatives and application systems available but no other method achieves complete, permanent protection.

TOWING SKIDS

Towing skids are the ideal method to support and move a poultry house. They are made from 75x75 mm or 75x50 mm tanalised timber according to unit, incorporate heavy galvanised towing eyes and have a number of advantages over wheels:

They are robust and long-lasting
They do not require maintenance
They do not sink in soft ground conditions, the load is spread evenly over a large area
They are easy to move by hand on the smaller units and by small tractor or ride-on mower on the larger ones.
They give proper support to the structure which will extend its life.

Skids are priced with the individual units
