Incised Timbers

Hales Sawmills was the first UK timber business to incorporate the brand new EXCALIBUR incising technology into their production process for their sawn, ground contact posts.

Surface incising is increasingly being recognised as an important factor in achieving the very best preservative protection for ground contact timbers. Incising helps achieve a more consistent penetration of the preservative into the timber, particularly through resistant heartwood zones.


EXCALIBUR has been developed in association with Lonza Wood Protection to provide an innovative, robust and cost effective option to meet the growing demand for incising technology.

Here you can view an update of the standards required for ground contact timbers and an overview of how Hales Sawmills meet these standards.
