Our Closeboard Fencing Products

Closeboard fencing is a simple and effective type of fencing. Consisting of Posts, Rails, Gravel Boards and individual Featheredge Boards or Ready Made Panels.

Linnell Bros offer a wide range of Closeboard Fencing products depending on the length and height of the fence and wether you require Ready Made Panels or the individual components. Ready Made Panels can be quicker to install, on either wooden or concrete posts, but are less flexible due to each panel being 1.8m wide and increasing in height in increments of 300mm. Linnell Bros Closeboard Panels are very well constructed and are fully framed. The 1.8m x 1.8m have 3 horizontal support battens. They come either Green or Brown treated. For Closeboard fences made with individual components we have a large range of Notched Posts, Arris Rails, Gravel Boards and the Individual Featheredge Boards. Linnell Bros timber comes from sustainable forests. The timber is treated on site, in our state of the art facility, to UC4 standard and comes in either Green or Brown colour.

Depending on the size of bays required Linnell Bros can supply your requirements. 2.4m, 3.0m and 3.6m bays are stock items, as are 1.8m, 2.4m and 2.7m Vnotched Posts. Any other sizes can be catered for and cut in our on site Mill. Featheredge Boards are stocked in various lengths from 1.05m up to 3.6m and widths from 100mm to 150mm. Linnell Bros also stock Slotted Concrete Posts for Closebaord Panels, along with Concrete Morticed or Recessed Concrete Posts for Arris Rails and Cant Rails.

Benefits of Closeboard Fencing

Durability and Strength: Emphasise the robust construction suitable for withstanding harsh weather. Close Board Fencing offers a wide range of benefits. It is robust and durable and offers good security. When errected properly it can withstand harsh weather, including strong winds and rain. One benefit of Pre-constructed Closeboard Panels, with Slotted Concrete Posts and Concrete Gravel Boards is that theyhave a very long service life, as no timber parts are in contact with the ground. Closeboard Fencing errected using individual components offers a more flexible solution. It is more suitable for sloping ground or where the height needs to vary. The size of the Bay, within reason, is also variable, allowing for short runs to fit in with buildings or other fixed obstcales.

Privacy: Highlight the solid construction that offers superior privacy compared to other fencing types.

Maintenance and Care

The Closeboard Fencing timber supplied by Linnell Bros is Pressure Treated to help prevent attack from insects, fungal infection & rot, so it has a desired life of 15 years. To help maintain the life of the fence you should apply a timber preservative every couple of years. Any overhanging branches should be cut back and the fence should be kept as clear from debris as possible. Any damaged individual boards can be replaced.
