Product Details

Featheredge aka Closeboard gates

The Featheredge gates are our most popular garden gates, they are made to blend in with our featheredge fences as closely as possible. We also refer to them as Closeboard gates.  Firstly all materials used are of the same high quality as our normal fencing products.  Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control we had to change panel suppliers in early 2019 and then again in late 2020. Our new style panels are similar to our featheredge panels, the main difference being that they utilise 125mm boards.

Gate construction

Our featheredge gates are framed, ledged and braced using pressure treated 47mm x 100mm structurally graded timber for the frame. The rails for the gate finish at 27mm x 100mm and the frame is rebated to accommodate the 125mm feather edge slats.  We have tried to match the appearance of these gates to our loose featheredge timber components.

Featheredge Gates sizes and options

Both of our featheredge gates are stocked as 1.75m high x 0.9m wide (approx. 6’ x 3’).  There are two models to choose from; Elite Featheredge and Standard Featheredge

Elite Featheredge Gate

The Elite featheredge Gate features ledged and braced framing which extends to the top of the gate.  Therefore when viewed through the front the horizontal brace is visible. These gates are finished with flat bottomed capping that sits along the top of this framing.

Standard Featheredge Gate

The standard featheredge Gate features ledged and braced framing which. When viewed from the front you can see the 100mm framework on the edges, the 125mm featheredge slats extend from top to bottom of the gate. These gates are finished with flat bottomed capping that sits along the top of this framing.

While we have stopped keeping stocks of the 3′ and 4′ high gates, they can be made to special order. Other bespoke sized gates can also be made to order, lead time is normally 5-7 working days.  There is a small extra labour charge for making gates to size, plus a pro-rata charge for extra materials where required.

Fixtures and Fittings

Finally we stock a variety of tanalised posts. We recommend 100mm x 100mm posts as a minimum  size, the featheredge gates are all heavy and deserve a substantial post for support.  Wherever possible our gate furniture is HD (Hot Dip) Galvanised, a finish more suited to outdoor conditions than the lower priced BZP products.  A comprehensive range of hinges, bolts and gate latches is held in stock.  We also carry a cold galvanising spray where customers require their gate furniture to look as uniform as possible.
