BSW Timber has extended its ‘easi’ range with the launch of easipost15, an incised fence post with a 15-year warranty. easipost15 has been developed using an innovative incising process, which delivers chemical impregnation 6mm into the post to penetrate the heartwood as well as the sapwood. This has enabled BSW to take the performance level of easipost15 beyond BS8417.
The bespoke engineering system developed by BSW in-house, guarantees the performance and durability of the Use Class 4 fence post. The system has been developed and tested extensively over the last 2 years by BSW experts to ensure its success in both preservative retention and penetration with British species. By taking a commonly used North American technique that has stood up to the rigours of the American market, BSW has employed an innovative approach to the technique of incising to fit British grown timber and its preservation.
easipost15 builds on the success of BSW’s market leading ‘easi’ range, which offers construction, fencing and decking products, as well as sleepers, pallets and packaging.
Alex Brownlie, director and head of business development at BSW Timber, said: “The technological advances driven by BSW in the development of easipost15 are an industry game-changer. After two years of detailed, patient development and testing, we’ve perfected our own engineered system to get the best out of British species while employing the proven Tanalith E chemical preservative from Arch Timber Protection Lonza as part of the system.
“The launch of BSW’s ‘easi’ range is the result of increased investment during the last few years in our UK mills, allowing for increased capacity, improved customer service and the ability to provide a wider product range. ‘easi’ has become the UK’s market leader, only five months after its launch. We’re confident that the quality and durability of easipost15 will continue to build on this success.”
