Product Details

These panels are made in England by a specialist timber panel, gate and building manufacturer who has been trading since the 1940’s.  They are made to a high specification, with pressure treated components and the products are very competitively priced.  When comparing the price of these panels you must consider the quality, we have looked at supplying lower price panels but the quality difference is too great.

Our HD Lap panels use a traditional design which combines horizontal lapped 4-5mm thick slats with vertical battening, five 18mm x 38mm battens on both sides. This helps to minimise flex and increase the panel’s strength by holding the overlap slats in place. These components are cut as a separate stage of the panel making process; the timber is supplied by other UK businesses. The timber fence slats are topped with sloped capping to minimise water ingress and to provide an attractive finish to the top of the panels.

Other panel sizes can be made to order, these must normally be in minimum batch size of 30 units because of the setting up time and costs for the machines.

Originally our panels used waney edge slats, but since early 2015 our panel slats now have straight trimmed edges making for a more uniform looking product. The panels are pressure treated with a light green Osmose preservative which mellows in colour when exposed to daylight.

While there are no half-panels available (last cost was higher than full panels) most Trade customers place batten down both sides of the panel at the desired size and cut the panel down. We do stock left and right hanging matching panel gates.
