YES. They are made from exterior grade materials. All the structural spars, joists, posts and handrails are made from factory pre-treated timbers which do not require any further treatment. However, we do recommend that you apply a timber preservative (as recommended in the build manual) to all the plywood parts.

DIY home build half and quarter pipe kits!
If you can build an IKEA flat pack wardrobe you can build one of our self assembly ramp kits, ideally you’ll need 2 pairs of hands and an electric drill/screw driver!
Prior to assembly we advise for longevity, of your quarter or half pipe, to treat with a timber preservative, although our ramps are suitable for outdoors we liken them to timber garden furniture.Cover during wet or inclement weather and treat with a preservative to increase the life span and keep it looking awesome for years to come!
All our products are made from exterior grade materials but in order to keep your ramp protected, we highly recommend that you apply a preservative treatment to the plywood parts of the ramp, ideally before you assemble.
Details of a recommended product are in your build manual, which you will receive when your order is processed. All of the structural timber, spars, posts & handrails are pre treated so won’t need any attention.
