Oak is generally accepted as the most durable timber for fence posts. We use fresh sawn English Oak in two grades, one for fencing and a superior quality for construction and for rails etc. The construction grade is better visually with fewer knots and less prone to cracking, which is not a defect but a natural character of Oak during the drying process.
Sapele is the Hardwood that we use for our Gates. Over the years we have tried different types of Hardwood, and have found this attractive timber to be the best, for stability, straight grain machining qualities. It is a pinkish colour, similar to Mahogany and when varnished brings out the beauty of the grain.
