Heron Joinery protects their soft wood windows prior to assembly using Protim double vacuum preservative treatment system. All joinery components are Protim Prevac treated after all machining, prior to assembly. Formulations are applied in accordance with the recent European Standards regime, rather than by using the more traditional British Standards criteria. A 30 year Desired Service Life, in accordance with BS8417: 2003 therefore applies to factory finished joinery treated with Protim Clearchoice preservative.
Protim Clearchoice pressure treated wood is suitable for use in construction projects that require protection to hazard categories UC1, UC2, UC3 such as roof timbers, timber framing, internal and external joinery and other internal and external timber projects that are above dpc/ground level. When using Protim Clearchoice in external applications it will need to be coated with a suitable external coating.
Protim Clearchoice pressure treated wood is very cost effective when balanced against the potential expense that could be incurred in future remedial treatments and refurbishment. By using Protim Clearchoice pressure treated wood you can extend the service life of timber projects. Effective against wood boring beetles, wet rot and dry rot fungi.
