Featheredge aka Closeboard gates
Featheredge gates are our most popular garden gates, made to blend in with featheredge fences as closely as possible. We also refer to them as Closeboard gates. All materials used are of the same high quality as our normal fencing products.
Our featheredge gates are ledged and braced using pressure treated 47mm x 100mm structurally graded timber. Two extra horizontals are included in the framing to give more options for the hanging of the gate. The featheredge slats are 150mm for 1.8m gates and 125mm wide for smaller gates to match the materials supplied for the fences themselves. The gates are finished with flat bottomed capping along the top of the framing, partly for appearance and partly to protect the top edge of the featheredge slats.
Gate sizes & options
Featheredge gates are stocked as 1.8m high x 0.9m wide (approx. 6’ x 3’); 1.2m high x 0.9m wide (approx. 4’ x 3’); and 0.9m high x 0.9m wide (approx. 3’ x 3’). Bespoke sized gates can 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 & Fittings
A variety of tanalised posts are stocked, 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.
