Featheredge or Feather Edge Panels
Feather Edge Panels or Featheredge Panels, these taper sawn boards do the job. The featheredge fence panel combines the privacy, strength and attractive appearance of featheredge fencing with the convenience of a ready made panel. While they should be called featheredge panels we also sometimes call them closeboard panels. Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control we had to change panel suppliers in early 2019. Our new style panels are similar to the earlier panels, the main difference being that they utilise 125mm boards.
Firstly, each panel has a sturdy frame using 32mm x 50mm pressure treated timber. This helps to minimise flex and to hold the feather edge slats securely in place. Feather edge slats are 125mm wide, so with a typical 25mm lap only 100mm of each slat is visible. These panels are made by the same suppliers as our HD lap Panels in the forest of Dean. because they are manufactured under factory conditions we should be able to keep a better control on stock levels than previously. We also stock 6×3 feather edge gates from the same supplier.
The featheredge fence panel slats are topped with a planed cap to minimise water ingress and to provide an attractive finish to the top of the panels. The panels can be fixed by screwing the frame to posts or by using a combination of 46mm and 52mm panel clips.
