Timber Information (Generic)

Understanding the markings on treated timber

A guidance note outlines the markings required on treated timber products in accordance with South African Standards SANS 1288, SANS 457-2/3, and SANS 753/4. These standards mandate specific information to be included in the marking, such as a unique treatment plant identifier or trademark, product certification mark from a third-party certification body, SANS standard number indicating compliance, hazard class indicating treatment level, and manufacturing year or month/year for different types of poles.

Understanding hazard classes

The “Understanding Hazard Classes” guidance note explains how timber is treated according to hazard classifications (H Class) based on its intended end use and level of risk exposure, with classifications defined in SANS 10005 and minimum requirements provided in SANS 1288.

Natural Durability of Wood

An important consideration when building with timber is predicting how long the structure will last. Whilst insects, decay or rotting organisms and marine borers can all attack wood, some timber species have the ability to resist attack better than others. The natural durability of a species to resist attack by wood destroying organisms is an indication of how long that timber will last when it is exposed to a defined set of exposure conditions without any additional preservative protection. The natural durability of timber species varies, even so within the wood from the same species of tree, depending on whether its sapwood or heartwood.
