Incising timber by creating small slits or pin holes in the surface of the timber to improve uptake and penetration of preservatives has long been recognised as an accepted method for improving the durability of timber and increasing the life span of wooden fencing posts.

The incising equipment comprises of pressurised rollers with knives or pins that penetrate the surface of the timber before treatment with the preservative.

Advantages of Incising
  • Incising helps to reduce cracking/splitting of the wood , by evenly destressing the wood prior drying.
  • Produces a deeper and more uniform "envelope" of wood preservative.
  • Improved penetration and retention of preservative.
