UC4 tanalised treated fencing posts are strong machine-rounded stakes that have undergone a vigorous tanalised pressure treatment that protects the wood against rotting and damp. This UC4 treatment involved the timber being kiln-dried so that the moisture content is reduced to around 28%. The preservative is then added to the timber while being put under hydraulic pressure to ensure deep penetration of the preservative. This more in-depth treatment ensures that the posts will have an extra long life of approximately 10-20 years. They can be supplied with a chamfered top and a pointed base making installation easier.
Our wooden stakes are ideal for almost all types of fencing including garden fences, agricultural fences, animal fences, boundaries and farm fields. These stakes are commonly used for long term applications such as animal stock fencing and farm fencing.

Suregreen's rounded wood stakes are UC4 treated, which is a wood preservative treatment completed under high vacuum pressure. The UC4 treatment ensures deep penetration of the wood preservative into the timber cells for a long-lasting protection against fungal decay, insect attack and rotting caused by water.
The UC4 treatment involves the timber being kiln-dried so that the moisture content is reduced to around 28%. The preservative is then added to the timber while being put under hydraulic pressure to ensure deep penetration of the preservative. The treatment protects the fence posts from contact with the ground and will prevent rotting for 10-20 years.
The treated wooden posts have a green colouration initially which will fade to a honey brown and finally to a silver grey. Suregreen stakes are all tanalised using preservatives including Osmose AC 500 preservative.
