Treated poles available in Durban, KZN

Poles Galore provides forest fencing and timber products in Durban. All our poles are treated with Creosote and CCA to protect the wood from pests and the elements. Termites, borers, and other pests can weaken your wood unless it is treated. CCA stands for Chromium, copper, and arsenic and is SABS approved for usage in the treated wood pole industry. There is a scientific method of applying the Creosote and CCA to the wood to make it leech resistant and safe for use. The way in which it is applied fixes into the wood so that it is highly resilient without leaving people or the environment vulnerable to the chemicals used. 

There have been no known health problems related to the use of CCA and Creosote-treated wood since its use began six decades ago. Only misusing treated wood and timber (like burning it for preparing food or for domestic fireplaces for example) leads to unhealthy exposure that can pose health risks. It is important to distinguish that there is a difference between the chemicals that are used to treat the wood before and after treatment. Before treatment these chemicals are dangerous, after treatment, they are fixed into the wood and non-toxic unless burnt. Treated Poles are an environmentally friendly product as long as it is not used to kindle fire or disposed of incorrectly. Cut wood retains the carbon it has absorbed which lowers the carbon emissions in our atmosphere. Worldwide foresters are committed to planting more trees that are used which makes it a renewable raw material that is good for the environment.
