Protek Wood Protection

Many years of research have gone into producing Protek's range of water based products to where the company is now acknowledged to be the market leader amongst sawmills, fence panel and shed manufacturers.

While their competitors have sought the perfect timber treatment amongst the vast range of chemicals available, Protek has been dedicated to a water based solution. The biocide is unique to them. Only top quality ingredients are used. When comparing prices with other timber treatments please remember to take into account performance and specification. It would be tempting and easy to leave out some ingredients to achieve a cheaper product but that is not Protek's way.
