Tanalised™ E, Our Story
Timber that has been pressure treated with Tanalised™ E, which is Copper Azole based, is the most Eco-friendly treatment that is available on the market and is new to South Africa. When we, as The Pole Yard, heard that this treatment would be available in South Africa, we knew that we had to try everything possible to bring this eco-friendly treatment to you, our customer.
Leeroy Deane, one of the Pole Yard owners, then went on a “mission” to see how he could make this possible. Forming a new business partnership, Leeroy secured a sawmill which already had a treatment facility. With the help of Lonza Wood Protection, the treatment plant was converted into a very neat and modern Tanalised™ E treatment facility.
The Pole Yard is proud to be the face of this eco-friendly treatment here in the Western Cape. Although we are here to offer you this eco-friendly treatment, we mustn’t forget that the current CCA treatment (which is widely used in South Africa) will continue to dominate for some time due to its lower cost and widespread availability. But for those that are looking for that eco-friendly option, then Tanalised™ E is the way to go.
