Robert Thorne and Sons is a family owned and run, by the 4th and 5th Generation, sawmill based in Three Legged Cross and is ideally located on the Hampshire and Dorset borders. We currently treat our sawn timber ourselves using Tanalith E. This is ensures that the timber is treated to the correct specification. We also treat customers own timber which is charged on a cubic metre basis. TANALISED timber has been impregnated with a preservative solution under high vacuum pressure in an industrial vessel. The treatment process ensures deep penetration into the timber cells, for a longer- lasting protective result against fungal decay and insect attack than the application of a surface coating. Pressure-treated timber is leach resistant, ensuring a long and trouble-free service life in a wide range of conditions, and assured performance in sensitive environments such as vegetable plots and areas of wildlife. The treated timber initially assumes a green colouration which fades to a honey brown over time and eventually a silver grey. No surface applied product is needed to maintain the integrity of the treatment. Timber treatments are specified in line with BS8417, in order to ensure that an appropriate level is given according to the end use of the timber. The use Class system is an indicator as to how the timber should be treated in order to match its end use.
