Warranted Machine Rounds

The Platinum range of fencing range from Clifford Jones timber offers high performance machined ground contact fencing rounds with a choice of a 15, 25 or 35 year performance warranty*.

FSC certified timbers are carefully selected for our platinum range of posts, so we can offer a choice of SPRUCE for our Incised 15, Homegrown Pine for Plus 25 and new to the range our Extreme 35.


Incised 15

Platinum 15yrs timbers are manufactured from FSC spruce, which are kiln dried, incised and then treated with Tanalith E9000 with BARmine technologies to ground contact UC4.

Our Incised 15 year Platinum timber posts feature a scientifically designed incising process for increased protection an analytical zone of confidence. The incisions are situated at ground level, this is the most critical area where the post is at most risk of decay. The incisions allow deeper penetration of the wood preservative to provide more effective and consistent protection.

When we manufacture our warranted timbers, the machine rounded posts pass through a purpose designed incisor process that adds a ground contact band of consistent and uniform incisions at a depth of up to 6mm at ground level. The ExcaliburR incisor ensures that our posts receive a deep penetration of preservative protection that meets User Class 4, BS8417 ground contact requirements.

Manufacturing Process

  • Stage 1: Raw timber arrives on site and is stored until required.
  • Stage 2: Raw timber is debarked, the residual waste is transferred into the production of bark.
  • Stage 3: Timbers that are debarked are rounded into a uniform state using one of nine rounders we have on site. The timbers range from 50mm up to 250mm in diameter, and are also pointed at this stage.
  • Stage 4: Posts are incised at ground level to ensure consistent and deeper penetration of wood preservative into the targeted analytical zone where the post is at most risk of decay.
  • Stage 5: Posts are packed into our unique ‘50p’ format and each post is tagged with a stainless steel nail with the year of manufacture for date recognition.
  • Stage 6: Timbers are kiln dried using our state of the art biomass powered kilns, the timber is dried down to 40% moisture.
  • Stage 7: The timbers are loaded into our pressure treatment tanks and Tanalith E9000 wood preservative is forced under high pressure into the sapwood.
  • Stage 8: The machine round timbers are ready to be despatched to awaiting customers using Clifford Jones Timber fleet or one of our key haulage partners.

Plus 25

Platinum 25yrs timbers are manufactured from FSC pine. The reason we can offer a 25yrs service life on pine is that the “cells” of pine are larger and when they are kiln dried, which we do at a much slower rate than spruce, (pine timber is in the kilns a lot longer) the cells open up and subsequently will be able to uptake of a lot more of the chemical treatment.

  • Stage 2: Raw timber is debarked, the residual waste is transferred into the production of bark.
  • Stage 3: Timbers that are debarked are rounded into a uniform state using one of nine rounders we have on site. The timbers range from 100mm up to 250mm in diameter, and are also pointed at this stage.
  • Stage 5: Posts are packed into our unique ‘50p’ format and each post is tagged with a stainless steel nail with the year of manufacture for date recognition.
  • Stage 6: Timbers are kiln dried using our state of the art biomass powered kilns, the timber is dried down to 30% moisture.
  • Stage 7: The timbers are loaded into our pressure treatment tanks and Tanalith E9000 wood preservative is forced under high pressure into the sapwood.
  • Stage 8: Want to go EXTREME? An additional process is required in order to manufacture of Platinum Extreme timbers with a 35 year warranty – we spray Polyurea chemical at ground level on timbers – This product has been tried and tested in the waterproofing market for over 30 years and we are now licensed to offer this waterproofing to our posts.
  • Stage 9: The machine round timbers are ready to be despatched to awaiting customers using Clifford Jones Timber fleet or one of our key haulage partners

Extreme 35

We have invested in the state of the art equipment which enable us to apply a polyurea coating around the timber at ground contact level. This product has been tried and tested in the waterproofing market for over 30 years and we are now licensed to offer this waterproofing to our posts.

Polyurea in comparison to any other waterproof system offers a unique, long lasting fast cure solution that is environmentally friendly, from manufacture of raw material the whole system is totally inert and even at the end of its life period it can be recycled and used in other applications such as road building to help as part of a greener additive and composite.
