The vast majority of the gates we sell are made in house allowing us to maintain the exceptional quality for which we have become known. Our range of gates constantly increases and evolves but all have one thing in common- they are made by time served craftsmen with an expert eye for detail.
All our gate frames are constructed from 94 x 45mm Planed square edged timber. This timber is cut from slow grown Swedish unsorted (the highest grade) redwood 225 x 50mm boards allowing for the centre 25mm to be removed leaving two, extremely stable, 100 x 50mm sections. (The heartwood of a tree is undesirable in joinery quality timber because of its habit of distorting.) These sections are then planed all round, kiln dried and pressure treated to further increase their longevity.
Our Tongue, Grooved and V rebated boards are specially milled for us from the same slow grown Swedish Redwood and have an extended tongue. This allows for the (entirely normal) movement of the timber whilst not allowing gaps to appear between the boards as standard TG&V would. Our boards finish at 120 wide x 15mm thick.
We always carry standard 1775mm high x 900mm wide closeboard (featheredge) and TG&V gates in stock and very often have other styles on the shelf. We also carry a range of 900 x 900mm gates ready to go. All other styles and custom sizes are made to order and can take up to 2 weeks at busy times.
