Ten decks at Satara Rest Camp and Tamboti Tented Camp are in the process of being rejuvenated. Saligna wood impregnated with Tanalith E is being used for the decks. The tanalith is applied usimg a vacuum process, and protects the wood from insects and fungal attack, which would cause the wood to deteriorate rapidly.
Tanalith E is considered to be an eco-friendly wood preservative. Komkor Kombuise has subcontracted Tzantim to do the work. Once the wood has been installed it will be stained dark brown and coated with a wax-based sealant that will repel water and prevent the wood from cracking, further extending the decks' lifespan.
