Timber panels are made from strips of timber nailed together, in a vertical or horizontal pattern, with corresponding vertical or horizontal support rails. The main types of fence panel are Overlap Panels, and Hit & Miss Panels, (shown below) however there are many variations in design and style of panel, shown here. We only use Concrete fence posts, so they do not rot in the ground, like the old timber fence posts. They are made in a “H” shape, so the timber panels slot into them. Often, the fencing will have a concrete base board beneath the timber panel. This keeps the wooden fence panel off the ground, and away from the moisture which causes rot, thus helping the fence to last much longer. All timber is treated with preservative (Tanilith), usually by pressure treating, in a process known as “Tanalising” and the panels are sometimes referred to as “tanalised”.
