Ban on Creosote

Why DURA2®?

In 2019, France banned suddenly the use of Creosote for fence posts.

There was no time to waste and after research and testing, DURA2® was born. DURA2®, a high-quality timber fencing alternative for the European market, has been quickly adopted for fencing. Even in Belgium and the Netherlands where Creosote isn’t forbidden yet, farmers and customers have adopted DURA2® for equestrian fencing. Read more

TESTIMONIAL FROM ONE OF OUR DISTRIBUTORS

"Following the ban on creosote, we marketed this premium product to our key customers in Normandy in 2019. Several points immediately appealed to us:

  • The product is beautiful, it is not dangerous, no burning of the skin and eyes.
  • The installation itself, even in the heat, is without risk for the installers
  • For customers with fences with creosote in need of repair, DURA2® is ideal because the colour is identical and the repairs are therefore not visible.
  • Storage of creosote posed problems and care had to be taken not to contaminate the soil in the storage areas
  • In the four years that our customers have installed Dura², we have received very good feedback about the ageing process and the colour remaining good over time.

For all these reasons, we are satisfied that we no longer use creosote, DURA2® as an alternative is ideal."

TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR DISTRIBUTORS

“When the use of creosotated timber was banned in France in 2019, we were fortunate that our supplier had a sustainable, non-polluting, devised and patented first-class alternative in the choice of wood under the name DURA². In retrospect, we can now say that the feedback from all our customers is only positive:
  • For the installers in our Norman livestock farming, there are no health problems with this non-harmful DURA² treatment, such as burns to the skin, eyes and respiratory tract due to the heat,
  • DURA² is aesthetically pleasing in color and appearance, allowing fencing to be repaired or expanded without distinguishing themselves from existing fencing,
  • Safe for animals and can be extended with mesh or special electric fencing to prevent animals from gnawing on the wood,
  • More sustainable than all current references on the market and non-polluting, which is in line with our company’s sustainable materials policy.
We are completely satisfied with this alternative, which has become indispensable over the years!”
