Treated Pine is a staple in the building industry. From sub-floor construction (namely, joists and bearers) to pergolas to kid’s playgrounds; this timber is relied on for its protection against insect attack and decay. Pine is not a naturally durable timber, which is why it is treated to ensure it is more hard wearing and resistant against other issues such as rotting.
When sourcing for a high-quality pine to both stock and recommend at No Nail Decking, AKD eco dry H3 was the only option. This particular product is backed by a structural guarantee against termites and decay and the active ingredients in the treatment are organic azole and permethrin, which is a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide. AKD eco dry H3 is treated to H3 level and is suitable for exterior, above ground usage. In other words, this is perfect for posts, rafters, joists, etc.
This type of treated pine is also commonly used as a building material for playgrounds and parks as AKD eco dry H3 is safe for both children and pets. It is important that you choose a treated pine product that does not contain harmful chemicals or preservatives as well as being environmentally-friendly. Sourced from sustainable Victorian plantation trees, this treated timber is naturally a green colour that will weather over time to a honey-brown colour. To enhance and preserve AKD eco dry H3, you can paint, stain or seal the product.
