Crestala’s Fordcombe Entrance Gates are manufactured on site in our workshop, by our skilled Gatemakers.
We can make special sizes.
All Fordcombe entrance gates manufactured by Crestala are made to be robust, yet offer very good value for money. The timber used is pressure treated, joinery grade, slow-growing Russian or Scandinavian redwood. The treatment provides good protection against rot and insect attack. Cosmetic treatments can be added later if desired.
For help with measuring up for your new gates, see our Blog entry Measuring for new side or entrance gates.
It should be noted that all treated softwood gates are susceptible to natural movement or shaking (cracks in the timber) as the timber expands & contracts during the normal weathering process. This is not considered to be a defect unless very severe. We recommend that treated softwood gates are allowed to dry fully before cosmetic treatments are applied.
*Measurements before the wood is planed. It’s roughly 5mm smaller than the original size.
