Mole Valley Farmers is pleased to announce the launch of Shield Fencing, a new and exclusiverange of timber products with a 15 year warranty. The range of high performance, machined round timber, made up of strainers, stakes, posts and rails are manufactured by Clifford Jones Timber and are made from quality home grown and FSC® certified mixed softwoods.

The Shield Fencing range is exclusively available from Mole Valley Farmers and its network of agricultural and rural stores including SCATS Countrystores, D&I Bridgman, Mole Country Stores, Cox & Robinson and Farmway.

To produce this new premium product range Clifford Jones Timber has invested in the very latest SIDEWINDER incising technology, which allows a deeper and more consistent penetration of the wood preservative, particularly into ground contact timbers. The timbers are then pressure treated with next generation TANALITH E wood preservative. This latest wood preservative from Lonza now incorporates patent pending BARamine technologies which provide a more robust protection against certain copper tolerant brown rots as well as allowing a more even and consistent distribution of the wood preservative into the next generation TANALISED timbers.

The Shield Fencing components are manufactured and preservative treated to meet a performance warranty of 15 years when used in ground contact (strainers, stakes and posts) and out of ground contact (rails). Should the timbers fail due to wood decay or insect attack within 15 years of installation, Clifford Jones Timber will cover the costs for consequential losses. This is backed up with a written guarantee and in addition each stake is hot branded to signify its authenticity.

Keith Ockenden, Mole Valley Farmers Head of Agriculture explains, “Our new Shield Fencing range is exclusive to Mole Valley Farmers and we are very pleased to be working with Clifford Jones Timber, who have made significant investment to develop this product. The latest technology is being used in the production of this range and we are very excited to be able to bring this product to the market as we feel it will give our customers increased confidence. In addition to the production technology, our 15 year warranty is a demonstration of our commitment to providing quality products for our customers.”

Shield Fencing will be available in MoleValley Farmers stores and related brands across the UK from Monday 3rd February. For more information, call into your local store, visit us online at or call us on 0844 272 6260.
