Henfield Flat Top Gate made with Untreated Softwood
The Henfield Flat Top is a classic style entrance gate.
The Henfield untreated softwood entrance gate is made by skilled gate makers using joinery grade, slow-growing redwood.
With 70mm thick vertical stiles and a 40mm thick frame in between, these gates are made to be stylish and robust.
All Henfield gates have a flush heavy bottom rail suitable for automation.
Henfield entrance gates are priced PER PAIR.
Examples prices shown below are all for 1.89m high pairs of gates.
Other heights, widths and single gates are available please contact us for price and availability.
It is important that Henfield gates made from untreated Softwood are stored, treated & cared for properly prior to hanging. Failure to follow these instructions may invalidate any future claims.
If the gates are not to be fitted immediately then they must be kept out of direct sunlight, stored flat or stood up against a wall with both stiles touching the wall.
All gates are supplied with a base coat treatment (specify clear or green) which provides some basic protection against fungal attack and blue stain.
IT IS IMPORTANT that Henfield untreated softwood gates are further protected with a good quality wood preservative, particularly the underside and all end grain before applying your selected choice of topcoats.
When the gates are unwrapped, they should be treated straight away if possible and certainly before they are exposed to the elements.
These gates should be treated with a good quality wood preservative such as those made by Barrettine, Cuprinol or Protek. A clear preservative is usually best, as it is less likely to affect the finished colour of the selected topcoat.
Preservative treatments must be fully dry before applying quality decorative treatments such as those made by Sikkens and Protek. Please follow the manufacturer’s application instructions fully.
Cheaper fence and shed treatments are NOT suitable for treating these gates.
Care must be taken to treat all surfaces with preserver and topcoat, particularly the bottom, all end grain & any holes etc for gate hardware. The gates should be checked at least twice annually and retreated in accordance with your chosen treatment manufacturers instructions.
A comprehensive range of gate fittings suitable for these gates is available from stock.
We can supply a range of treated softwood posts or hardwood posts if you prefer to compliment your gates. Our team will be able to advise you on suitability.
