Welcome to Gumpro

At Gumpro, we pride ourselves in supplying the highest quality SABS treated building and construction poles to the industry.

The timber species grown and processed on our timber farm is Eucalyptus grandis (gum). Preservative treatment of poles gives protection against fungal decay, termite and wood-borer damage.

Types of wood treatment

 

Tanalith (CCA):
is a water-based preservative treatment, which imparts a clean, green appearance to poles and is especially suited for use in buildings and urban structures. It can also be painted or stained as required. A wax-based additive - known as Weatherwood is used to give water repellency and inhibit cracking of Tanalized poles which also then carry a 25 year guarantee - underwritten by the chemical supplier.

 

Creosote:
is an oil-based preservative, which imparts a black colour to poles. Due to its oiliness and strong odour, it is more suited to agricultural and industrial use for fencing, telephone and electricity poles.

 

 

Firewood:
Pole selection and cross-cutting is done on a timber deck at the plant and the off-cuts produced are cut to length and packaged for sale as firewood.
