Using Components to construct Closeboard Fencing
Closeboard bays are supplied as loose components and when fitted together combine to make an extremely sturdy and durable fence. The posts supplied, as standard, with a back weathered top and are pre-mortised to accept the ended arris rails. This provides a very strong frame for the feather edge boards to be attached to. For additional durability the bay comes complete with a gravel board that fits at the base of the fence this protects the bottom of the feather boards. All heights specified include the gravel board. Other post tops are available to order.
Counter rail & Capping Option
A further upgrade option is to install the finishing counter rail and capping option. The advantages of counter rail and capping is that it provides greater strength and an improved appearance. The counter rail is mortised into the posts and when the feather edge is attached it will provide a solid base for the capping to be secured to.
Post top option
These are available as an extra upgrade from the standard back weathered fence post. Your Posts for closeboard fencing can be shaped and 'topped' to suit your specification; all of our posts are held in stock with a flat top to allow each post to be machined to order. Back weathered posts are usually offered as standard with our standard closeboard fencing , whereas Round top is suited for use with counter rail and capping as an optional extra.
See below for our available post top options:-
Closeboard fencing with Trellis
The option is available to have a garden trellis section to the top of your closeboard fence run. This gives a less visually intrusive fence but still the security of a closeboard fence. The light is allowed through the trellis on top of the fence and the trellis also allows the ability to grow plants up. We have a 300mm high, 450mm high & 600mm high trellis option available on all our garden closeboard fencing bays.
