Timber Bridge Webinar Series – Guide for In-Place Preservative Treatment

September 9, 2014 – 10:00 am - 11:00 am




Welcome to Timber Bridge Tuesdays Sept 9th – Oct 14th!  We will be covering various topics related to timber bridge technology in a series of 6 weekly Webinars.

Join at 8 am Pacific, 9 am Mountain, 10 am Central, 11 am Eastern

This seminar covers the selection and application of in-place preservative treatments to historic and modern timber bridges. In-place treatment options will be described, with an emphasis on how their characteristics make them more or less suitable for a range of bridge applications.  Examples of approaches to applying treatments in specific scenarios will be presented along with research findings on their efficacy.  Topics will also include situations where decay and insect attack is most likely to occur, and where in-place treatments are most likely to provide benefit, as well as preservative treatment, safety, handling and regulatory considerations.
