Choosing the right gate is important, after all there is no 'one size fits all' option. In our guide below we have listed the different types of gates available along with their purpose. If you cannot find the exact gate you are looking for, call our team on 03330 050115 who will be happy to advise and discuss our bespoke gate services.
Our wooden gates are available in two types of timber -
Scandinavian Redwood is a pressure treated prepared softwood with a slight green tinge appearance. No treatment is required once installed although the longevity and appearance can be enhanced by some annual maintenance.
Premium hardwood with the appearance and qualities of teak, planed and sanded to a mid brown finish. Much lighter in weight than that of Oak and Keruing, reducing the pressure being put on the fittings and head stock. No treatment required, although a coating of teak oil annually will help maintain its natural colour.
Please note all our wooden gates are produced from sustainable well managed forests and handcrafted in the UK. Take a look at our timber guide for more information about the types of fencing timber available. Beware of cheaper options that may use green fresh timber. This timber is not dried and may be susceptible to movement and splitting. The finish may also be a lower quality with the fixings (bolts and nuts) possibly using a cheaper BZP finish, instead stainless steel.
