A traditional type of fence using posts, horizontal rails and neat rows of round, or pointed, top pales. We stopped supplying pointed pales in 2013 because customers were becoming increasingly concerned with the danger of the points and splintering. Pale (or picket) fences are normally 0.9 metre or 1.2 metre high, enough to form a garden boundary without interfering with the view.
Pale fences are normally spaced in one of two ways, one pale followed by a space which is either the width (70mm) or the thickness (20mm) of a pale. Most prefer to use the width of a pale, possibly because it uses fewer pales and is therefore cheaper, but it also keeps the garden more open and allows light through to the plants.
Round top pales have a planed finish and are therefore ideally suited for gardens or landscaping projects where young children are likely to be present. If the round top pales are left to dry out thoroughly they can be painted with Osmo Country Colour or stained with Osmo Natural Woodstains. Round top pales come in four height options 0.6m, 0.9m, 1.2m and also 1.8 metres; they are produced for us in England. Other lengths can be ordered in pack quantities – usually 700 pieces.
These round top pales can be combined with planed finish (PSE) posts and rails, or sawn materials. Many tradesmen like to use CLS 47mm x 100mm as the finished dimensions are ideal for fence rails (40mm x 90mm) and they have a nice eased edge, planed finish.
