There are two regulations in South Africa that apply to wood preservation. Both these regulations refer to compliance of SANS 10005, and in order for the reader, end-user, specifier, regulating authority etc. to fully understand the interpretation or intent of each regulation, one needs to read it in context with the relevant clauses given in SANS 10005, The preservative treatment of timber. SANS 10005 (previously SABS 05) is the code of practice that was developed many years ago as a guidance document on all matters pertaining to wood preservation, i.e. wood preservative types, processes, methods, treatment requirements, hazard classifications, reference to the relevant product specifications, handling precautions etc. SANS 10005 is commonly referred to by industry as “the bible” of wood preservation…

Pressure Treatment of Wood information on the Preservatives used for pressure treatment of wood guidance note and regulations
How to plant a pole – guidance note The process of proper preservative treatment of timber requires for the preservative to be deeply impregnated into the permeable or treatable sapwood, resulting in a deep envelope of preservative treatment around the central and inner impermeable or untreatable heartwood. It is preferable that timber is purchased in the size and shape in which you intend to use it.

Exterior surface coatings play an important role in the final steps of the manufacture or construction and later, in the maintenance and renovation of wooden objects and structures. The consumer expects a reasonable level of performance from these finishes. However, the performance and hence the selection of an acceptable finish for an exterior wooden structure or product is influenced by several factors. These include wood characteristics, environmental exposure conditions, appearance of the finished product as well as durability, cost, ease of application, maintenance and renovation or removal of the finish….
