The preservation of timber in our granny flats, cabins, studios is achieved by addressing the following:
Protection against fungal decay (wood rot) and is effective against well over 2,000 species of fungi.
Reducing the evaporation and breakdown of moisture and natural oils of timber used in the granny flats
Reducing the ageing process significantly by inhibiting splitting and warping of the timber used in building your granny flat in WA
Timber ‘recognises’ TimberSafe as a kind of ‘artificial sap’ taking and holding the borates deep within timber (up to 150mm)
TimberSafe consists of a unique blend of borates immersed in an odourless and colourless liquid. Its main active constituent is boron – one of 109 elements that make up planet Earth. In nature, boron will often combine with oxygen and other elements – commonly called ‘borates’ to indirectly protect against insects without direct injection of poisonous or toxic elements.
Being non-biodegradable it will not break-down or lose strength over time and will continue working indefinitely when applied to either new or existing timbers in your granny flat, cabin or studio.
