AGRICISED® – HIGH-PERFORMANCE FENCING POSTS AND STRAINERS

 AGRICISED® – HIGH-PERFORMANCE FENCING POSTS AND STRAINERS

The M&M Timber Agricised® machine round fencing range delivers long lasting results and offers huge savings in replacement materials and labour costs over an extended lifetime compared to non- Agricised® fencing timbers.

Agricised® timbers last 3 times longer than standard timbers. We guarantee it! The 15-year antirot warranty* is available for all Agricised® timbers purchased, a no quibble replacement policy in the event of a post failing due to rot.

The timber used for the Agricised® comes from commercial plantations across the UK and processing takes place at the Worcestershire sawmill where timbers are machine rounded and incised using an Excalibur-R processing machine. The incising helps increase the surface area of the stake, strut or strainer to help distribute the high performing Tanalith-E preservative into the vulnerable sapwood cells.

Before kiln drying, the square packs have sticks placed in between layers of timber, fundamental in promoting airflow through the complete pack during drying. M&M Timber has 250 cubic metres of capacity kilns, this equates to roughly 10 artic loads of timber. Each Kiln is equipped with sensors which probe into the timbers and read the moisture content.

Moisture levels in fresh timbers are normally extremely high. As M&M Timber uses a high-pressure method to drive Tanalith-E into the sapwood of the Agricised® timbers, it is therefore pivotal that moisture content is reduced before treating, this allows as much uptake of the wood preservative as possible. In Spruce M&M Timber will dry timbers to an average of 40% as this is the optimum level for this species.

The kiln-dried timbers are loaded into pressure treatment
vessels and Tanalith-E preservative is forced under high pressure into the sapwood to offer a greater level of protection. This treatment along with the incising technology delivers an effective zone of confidence in the area prone to decay.

Available in a range of sizes and with anti-twist four-sided point, Agricised® timbers deliver new levels of economy to long-lasting perimeter fencing.

Agricised® timbers meet UC4 standards (BS8417) which are fully audited by not only M&M Timber’schemical supplier Lonza, but also by an additional third-party quality scheme through the WPA (WoodProtection Association) Benchmark audits.
