The wood is selected pine from sustainably managed forests.
It is quarter-sawn and pressure treated twice during the manufacturing process. The first treatment is before machining and the second is after cutting and drilling. This ensures full penetration of the preservative through the wood and gives a service life of over 20 years in ground contact.
The dowels are made from recycled plastic and have a patented locking action when assembled. This means that your raised bed, pond or retaining wall will form one large rigid structure with many connections to hold it together. Because of this WoodBlocX structures need no foundations.
The modular system is billed as an alternative to railway sleepers.
