GREEN UC4 KD Incised with 15 year warranty, chamfered and 4-way pointed. All posts are impregnated with Tanelith to Use Class 4. Raw material is taken from slow-growing Baltic logs. Each post comes with a 15 year performance guarantee that meets the requirements of both BS8417 and IS436 UC4 ground contact.

GREEN UC4 PINE KD with 15 year warranty, chamfered and 4-way pointed. All posts are impregnated with Imprealit KD to Use Class 4. Availability is limited due to export restrictions from Belarus.

CUNDY PEELED – We supply a range of green-treated Cundy Peeled posts.

CREOSOTED UC4 PINE with 25 year life expectancy. KD, chamfered and 4-way pointed.

Erin Timber OÜ only uses WEI-type C creosote which is the best quality available on the European market. WEI-type C creosote oil is distilled to a higher temperature than the more viscous type-B oil. Approximately 90kg/m3 of oil is then vacuum and pressure impregnated to a depth of 15mm. This will vary with sap content.

The result is:

  • greater penetration of oil
  • greater retention
  • reduced residues
  • a reduction in odour

A note on heartwood. Heartwood is the red centre of a post (it is clearly visible in the above photo). It will vary in size. Heartwood is exceptionally difficult to impregnate with chemicals as the cells are resistant to fluid flow. However heartwood will not decay or lose strength as it’s cells contain very little “food” for fungal attack. It is the outer sapwood that should always be fully impregnated to ensure a long lasting ground-contact post.
