Treated wood lattice is an easy, versatile way to lend beauty, privacy and dimension to an area without blocking airflow or confining the space. Because lattice has so many uses, Universal Forest Products offers a wide selection of lattice panels, including garden, heavy-duty, and privacy lattice. All are secured by galvanized staples and feature-finished corners. Caps and dividers are also available for framing your lattice.

Universal's ProWood pressure-treated wood lattice retains its natural, light wood color.  And that's because ProWood lattice is treated with MCA (micronized copper azole) preservative, a safe, environmentally friendly treatment that has also been scientifically proven to protect treated wood from rot and termites. This preservative helps protect the wood fibers and color in every lattice panel.  Laboratory and field studies have verified the effectiveness of the MCA treatment in above ground and ground-contact applications. It's important to know that most wood lattice is pressure treated for above ground applications and should not come in contact with the ground.
