The Benefits of Timber Fencing
If you are trying to decide if timber is the most suitable fencing system for your project, let’s take a closer look at some of the considerable benefits it offers:
1. Pleasing Appearance
If you need to move away from the harsher and more industrial look of metal fencing systems to find something that is easier on the eye, then you should definitely consider wood fencing. Wood blends in with the surroundings and can bring the rural look into any urban environment. This fencing can provide high levels of security and still look great.
Timber fencing can be designed as an exact fit for your intentions. Close-boarded systems can be used for complete privacy and as a security measure. And of course, they can be built up to any height.
Post and rail systems, on the other hand, can add some warmth and urban design flair to enclose a space or mark out a boundary whilst retaining an open and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
We also offer a full range of timber gates with customisable width and height options to match your installation.
3. Installation and Maintenance
Wood fencing systems are straightforward to install. Our expert installers do all of the wind resistance calculations for you and provide quick and efficient service. And with minor adjustments taking not much more than a good saw, our installations are a perfect fit every time.
And when the time comes to hand it back to you for maintenance, a good coating of wood preserver on a regular basis is all it takes.
Timber fencing is known to be more affordable than all but the very basic types of metal fencing systems. If cost is a consideration then timber may well be the best system to choose.
Whether you need a typical good quality and great looking timber boundary fence or something a bit more secure like timber security fencing, we are certain to be able to provide something to suit.
OUR TYPES OF TIMBER FENCING
Close-board fencing provides security and privacy and yet remains pleasing to the eye. The system will eventually bed into the landscape to blend with landscaping schemes rather than stand out from them.
Post and Rail
Here at Perimeter Fencing Solutions, we use the best quality homegrown timber that is pressure-treated for long life. Our standard post and rail systems come in either green or brown and we can incorporate a classic gate of your choice to match your installation
Substantial upright posts are normally set into a concrete foundation. A triangular wedge is cut out of the upright post for built-in waterproofing properties. When the horizontal beam sits in this wedge it is angled in such a way that rainwater has no purchase and runs straight off.
Timber Play-Safe Palisade
Being play safe for children means that the design of the system is aimed at preventing accidents and injury to children. We can also introduce vibrant colour schemes that appeal to children and look great when the Play-Safe system is introduced around parks.
