  3. Timber dimensions & length

Mixed Thickness:

If packs requiring treatment are comprised of mixed thickness pieces, eg. 75mm & 35mm, they must be separated.  Mixed thickness cannot be treated together as schedules/ uptakes are different.

End seal:

Glu-lam & LVL’s – end-seal must be applied to beams prior to treatment to ensure even distribution of preservative chemicals.  Fisher’s can apply end-seal if requested for a small charge.
