M&M Timber have installed a £125,000 advanced drying kiln at their 22 acre site at Clows Top, near Kidderminster.
The investment is to help the company to cope with increased demand for Micronized timber – timber which has been preserved with MicroPro technology which utilises sub-micron copper particles that improve corrosion protection of fasteners and fixings.
The kiln drying process is an essential part of the quality control process which means all Micronized timber is treated to BS8417 and has a 15 year service life guarantee for UC4 in ground applications.
“Treating timber is an art, it needs to be carried out professionally using timber selected and conditioned for long term service life,” says M&M Timber managing director Nigel Poyner.
“There has always been a requirement for a quality solution, particularly for fencing where high costs of labour and wire can have an economic impact on land management overheads.”
