If we missed anything, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to help
Softwood – European Redwood, also known as Scots Pine, Pinus Sylvestris or Scandinavian Redwood is used for all styles of gates
Hardwood – Meranti from Malaysia which is used for all our hardwood field gates and Iroko from West Africa for all our side or entrance gates
Yes, all softwood is tanalised and pressure treated in green or brown timber
Hardwood is not required to be treated although this product can be oiled or varnished
We guarantee all workmanship and products for one year, unless accidentally damaged (T&C’s for more info)
We certainly do and this is factored into the estimate unless the customer prefers to keep them
Depending on the size of the gate we will recommend which size posts to install for your gate application
Yes we have a showroom, which is located at our premises 58 Edison Road, HP19 8TE
We take all hanging sides from the front of the gate and this is determined by which side the hinges are being fitted
This will all depend on how the current gates are hung and if the correct geometry can be achieved for the automation system
It will do no harm in painting or staining softwood treated gates although we recommend using a micro-porous product, we offer these products in our showroom
The difference between hardwood and softwood is mainly longevity hardwood will last much longer and is less likely to move or twist, hardwood is also more expensive than softwood
We manufacture all sorts of bespoke gates out of timber and if you require a certain style our joiners will do there best to achieve this for you
