For a striking, yet secure entry to your home, the Lymington gates create an impressive welcome, but are more than ideal for both security and privacy.
Constructed using superior section sizes, the Lymington gates can be made in a premium softwood, or Sapele hardwood.
At New Forest Fencing, we love it when our customers are inspired by new or unusual looks, so if you want to customise our designs in any way – for example by adding engravements, or contrasting with powder coated steel, we’re more than happy to help you relaise the look you’re after.
All of our gates can be complimented with automation and intercom, please enquire for more information.
The Lymington is a pair of gates made from 70mm x 45mm rebated, PAR timber framework, mortice & tenon jointed. The braces are made from 70mm x 30mm sawn timber. The gate is clad with 80mm x 16mm T.G.V. boards, and is finished with a solid routered edge top rail and with the round top stiles extended above the top rail. On Gates with a width of 1.2m each leaf and over, we increase the size of the framework to 95mm x 65mm at no extra cost.
These gates should not be pressure treated, as they are made from Kiln dried Timber, which is stored dry and assembled in a dry workshop. It is important to realise that when this timber comes in contact with the elements, rain etc. it will take on the moisture and swell. This will be noticeable especially on the Tongue and groove boarding, which may distort the framework and try to force the gate apart at the joints.
For softwood gates, we strongly recommend an oil-based treatment, available in Pale green, Golden or Dark Brown at a square meter price, see our price list page 5 for current prices. We strongly advise the customer to provide at least a further two coats of stain, and to recoat it throughout the life of the product.
For Hardwood “Sapele” gates we strongly recommend a coat of Ronseal woodstain which is applied to all surfaces during the manufacturing process, see our catalogue for current prices. We can apply this in “Antique pine” which brings out the natural Sapele colour or “Teak” which will make a very dark colour. We strongly advise the customer to provide at least a further two coats of stain, and to recoat it throughout the life of the product.
