All our poles are CCA treated and SATAS approved. CCA is an acronym for “Copper, Chrome and Arsenic” – which is what the treatment mixtures consists of. The Copper and Chrome compounds in the mixture make the poles weather resistant and the Arsenic guarantees that no timber-eating insects damage the poles you purchased.
All our poles are treated with CCA to level H4. In accordance with SAWPA (South African Wood Preservers Association), H4 treated poles are more than sufficient to be used for High Hazard – ground contact needs. These poles are ideal for agricultural posts, landscaping, structures, decking and bridges. All our poles are issued with an anti-split plate at each end to ensure that your timber doesn’t crack. The CCA treatment mixture is penetrated 13mm into each pole in accordance with SABS regulations and poles are inspected to ensure that you get the quality you pay for.
