Post and Rail Fencing in Felixstowe Suffolk

This is a basic fence consisting of vertical fence posts supporting horizontal rails and is more often than not used for agriculture to secure livestock in fields. We can install standard nailed post and rail fencing or much stronger morticed post and rails.  Depending on the height of the fence we would usually use either two or three horizontal rails.

All of the wood used is pressure treated and sourced from a well respected local timber merchant in Suffolk.  Due to the nature of timber we would recommend treating the fence with a solvent based treatment approximately every 2 – 3 years to prolong its lifespan.

Post and rail fencing is very strong and due to being only a framework fence, doesn’t  suffer from wind damage like other solid boundary fences do.  We often install this type of fencing together with a wire mesh fence to create a secure boundary for animals in fields whilst still giving an open and clear view through the fence.

We use 100mm wooden posts and 87mm x 38mm sawn timber rails as standard but can supply and install more sturdy posts if required.  We can also supply and install rustic posts instead of the sawn posts.  The posts are ideally spaced at no more than 8ft intervals and are either pile driven or concreted into the ground.

The posts and rails are available in either green treated timber or brown treated timber as standard but can easily be coloured with wood stain preservatives or painted in an exterior paint to give a more personal and finished look.
