Tanapole™ Ranch Fencing Captures a Spirit of Adventure at Camp Discovery


The skillfully crafted entry/exit design that eliminates the installation of a traditional gate.

A spirit of adventure is felt at Camp Discovery, where together humans and wildlife embrace the beauty of the natural surroundings of the 270-hectare game farm. However, when the wildlife began to pose a problem by roaming onto the sports field, Camp Discovery approached Khulani Timber Industries, who provided a solution by installing TanapoleTM ranch fencing around the perimeter of the field to alleviate the problem.

The installation took two-weeks and features an interesting entry/exit design that eliminates the use of a traditional gate that requires opening and closing. The skillfully designed "zig-zag" formation of the poles allows for humans to navigate their way on and off the field, while keeping the wildlife at bay. To withstand the outdoor conditions of the sports field and provide protection against wood decay caused by fungi, the poles were treated with TanalithTM C wood preservative and WeatherwoodTM water repellent additive.

Established in 1991 and located in Modjadjiskloof in Limpopo, Khulani Timber Industries is a leading treated pole producer for both the building / fencing pole market and the agricultural / transmission pole market throughout Africa. The treatment of timber poles is carried out in two treatment plants, one of which was upgraded and commissioned by Lonza Wood Protection in 2010. All poles adhere to the SANS 457 pole specification requirements. Khulani is also listed on the TanalisedTM Wood Preservative Guarantee programme, which offers end-users, such as Camp Discovery, the peace-of-mind of a product that is backed by a 15-year guarantee.

For more information on TanapoleTM preservative treated wood and it's 15-year guarantee (with terms and conditions), please visit the website at www.tanalised.co.za.
