Pressure Treated Fences
All our pressure treated wood fence is treated with ACQ®, an environmentally advanced formulation that is arsenic and chromium free. The ACQ preservative system provides long-term protection from rot, decay and termites without the use of any EPA listed hazardous chemicals.
ACQ Preservative Protection for Fences
The ACQ preservative in pressure treated wood is a copper plus quat system that provides the same level of protection to wood as CCA preservatives against decay, rot and termite attack (without the use of arsenic and chromium).
The main active ingredient in ACQ is Copper, which has long been established as the most cost-effective preservative component used in timber preservation. Quat acts as the co-biocide in the ACQ preservative, providing additional protection from fungi and insect attack that copper alone would not control. Quats are commonly used in household and industrial disinfectants and cleaners and are biodegradable in soil. Copper and quat solutions similar to ACQ are used for the control of fungi and bacteria in swimming pools and spas.
Pressure Treated Offers Improved Weathering Performance
Wood which is exposed outside to the weather is subject to repeated wetting and drying cycles that cause wood to swell and shrink, resulting in splitting, cracking and warping. Pressure treated lumber is protected with ACQ preservative treatment, to provide long-term protection against decay, rot, termite attack and the effects of weathering.
Painting and Staining or Natural Weathering for Fences
Pressure treated lumber can be painted or stained to match any outdoor color scheme. High quality oil and latex based stains are recommended. Water repellent coatings can be applied to enhance the long-term weathering performance. It is important that the wood is dry and free from surface deposits prior to applying any coating. Left uncoated ,or with clear water repellent coatings, P.T will initially weather to a natural brown color, eventually turning gray following long-term exposure (usually about 3 mos.) to the sun.
Nails, Fasteners and Fittings
For the best results, stainless steel or hot dipped galvanized fasteners and fittings are recommended. Anti-corrosion coatings applied to fasteners and fittings in contact with treated wood will enhance long- term performance. Direct contact of pressure treated lumber with aluminum fasteners and fittings is not recommended.
