Cleft Chestnut Paling fences are a traditional product, made in the UK and made from chestnut poles that are cleaved by hand into pales. Cleaving means that the chestnut poles split with the grain and this gives the maximum strength and durability to the chestnut pale. The process of wiring the pales together into continuous lengths is then done mechanically.
Fence lengths and availability
Our chestnut paling is very straightforward. Our normal rolls are 10 metres long as opposed to many Suppliers 10 yards which is only 9.14 metres. However, if we run low on stock we do sometimes have to resort to the 10 yard rolls. The pales are approximately 1.22 metres high and are spaced at 100mm with two securing wires.
The pale rolls can be fitted into the back of most larger cars but are quite bulky. For best results the Chestnut Paling needs to be pulled tight during installation and in permanent fences straining posts could be used at ends and corners.
This natural looking product is very versatile and looks at home in everything but the most modern of settings. The fact that it can be taken down and then re-used with the minimum of fuss adds to its versatility. Popular uses include: permanent fencing in gardens, parks, agriculture & forestry; wind breaks and erosion; and temporary fencing for building & construction work.
Please note that chestnut paling is currently (summer 2019) in limited supply
