Timber naturally swells and shrinks as it weathers causing it to weaken. Anti-split plates can help reduce splitting in timber, which occurs as a result of weathering, but not all plates are created equal. Eagle Metal’s anti-split plates are easy to press and eliminate timber splitting while reducing tooth withdrawal.
