CCA TREATED PINE SLEEPERS

treated-pine

 Arsenic Fears: The evidence against CCA treated pine isn’t strong, but the simple fact is that a lot of people don’t trust it, won’t trust it and won’t use it because it has arsenic in it.

There is little evidence that the arsenic in treated pine leaches into soils. The real concern is when used in playgrounds and toddlers (who put everything into their mouth) run the risk of chewing a scrap of timber or soil which lies next to treated timber. Another concern is cutting it. You should always wear a dusk mask when cutting it and keep spectators away. CCA treated pine should never be burned, nor should it come in contact with drinking water.

But using CCA Treated Pine is still popular for use in gardens and retaining walls. The cost is cheaper than the alternative ECO Sleepers and more sizes are available in the CCA Treated Pine.

Either option is treated H4 treated for in ground use.

ecoECO SLEEPERS

Treated with ACQ which is free of arsenic and chromium and offers real peace of mind when used in vegetable garden beds and children’s playgrounds. Considering that almost all backyard vegi growers these days are growing their own food organically, with the emphasis on chemical free, healthy plants then using the ACQ treated sleepers is the product to use.

The ACQ stands for Alkaline Copper Quaternary. It uses 100% recycled copper as its main component to provide protection against decay fungi, termites and wood boring insects. Copper is widely used in organic gardening applications. Quaternary ammonium compounds are also commonly used in household and industrial disinfectants and cleaners.

ACQ treated pine looks much the same as CCA treated pine. Both start out green in colour then weather to grey over time.

Hot dipped galvanised and/or stainless steel fasteners are fittings are recommended when building with ECO Sleepers.

Eco sleeper sizes:

2400 x 200 x 50
2400 x 200 x 75
3000 x 200 x 50
3000 x 200 x 75
 

NOTE: Treated Pine, Hardwood, Ironbark and Eco Sleepers are a garden grade, unseasoned and rough sawn. We do not allow the sleepers to be picked through due to Health and Safety. They are not a select grade and are freshly cut with a high moisture content. They should be used as soon as possible after purchase and not left lying in the sun to dry out, as twisting and warping will occur.

Hot dipped galvanised or stainless steel fastners are the recommended screws to use when building with Treated Pine or the Eco Sleepers.
