Why Pressure-Treated Wood?

Horse stalls: pressure treated woodTriton Barns recommends pressure-treated wood be used on the bottom perimeter of each horse stall. Why is this so important?

When wood is pressure-treated, a chemical preservative is injected inside the wood to it’s core, to help it better withstand even the harshest elements. It also helps fend off vermin, insects and fungus, which can add more than 20 years to the life of the wood. The amount of protection on each piece depends on how much chemical (measured in pounds per cubic foot) the wood absorbs.

Note: When working with pressure-treated wood, be sure to wear gloves, a dust mask and eye protection to avoid irritation in your nose, eyes, and skin.
