The posts and rails are made from rough sawn timber produced from Norway Spruce - Picea Abies or Sitka Spruce, felled mainly from North Wales. The timber is sourced from an FSC Approved Supplier, which verifies that the forest is being administered in a manner that safeguards biodiversity and enhances the well-being of local communities and workers, all the while guaranteeing its economic sustainability. Forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) adhere to rigorous standards encompassing environmental, social, and economic considerations. This timber knee rail fencing is supplied to First Fence by a reputable UK timber saw mill, produced from Norway Spruce and felled predominantly from North Wales (FSC certification is available upon request).
The timber post is available as a 1.8m and 2.1m height and is a dig in format so will require Post Mix to firmly secure it into the ground (2 bags per post are recommended). The horizontal rail which affixes to the installed posts with 100mm x 4.5mm Round Wire Nails, is available as a 3.6m long x 87mm x 38mm format.
Regular maintenance is necessary to ensure the longevity of this type of Post and Rail fence which may include staining or painting the timber to protect it from the elements. Inspecting and repairing any damaged or rotten components is important to keep the fence in good condition.
