Treated Timber

As well as offering VACSOL® Aqua protection to our manufactured roofing and flooring components, Nuneaton Roof Truss can also provide a Treatment Service for customers' own building joinery timbers. 

VACSOL® Aqua are water based preservatives which are industrially applied in a controlled low pressure, double vacuum process giving an outer envolope of protection to the timber components. Less moisture is absorbed than in high pressure treatments allowing the wood to dry quicker and helping to retain its original dimension. 

If you are interested in having your timber treated then all we need to know is whether the timbers you require to be treated are Internal Timbers, such as roofing timber, timber frame material, purlins, joists, wallpate, tilting battens or plywoods or External Timbers such as soffits, barge and fascia boards, cladding, doors etc.

Specifications and Standards

VACSOL® Aqua preservative is tested in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 599, including extended field trial testing. VACSOL® Aqua treated timber is treated in accordance with the penetration and retention requirements given in BS 8417.

VACSOL® Aqua treated timber meets National Building Specification (Z12), National House Building Council, Zurich and UK Wood Protection Association National specifications. The desired service life does not provide a guarantee of performance but merely an indication of the expectation against which the recommendations for timber treatment are drawing up, assuming good design and normal conditions of use. VACSOL® Aqua treated timbers can be used in external building applications  above dpc level, but must have an approporate and well maintained decorative coating added to maintain the integrity of the preservative protection.
