Below, we list the key benefits associated with wooden gates:
Having your gates constructed from timber rather than metal is another plus towards the improvement of your carbon footprint. The use of this natural product in such a sustainable way is a bonus for our climate-conscious clients
Timber ages beautifully and, as hardwood is already a darker shade, its colouring will only be further enriched over time. With minimal maintenance – i.e. weatherproofing – your wooden gates will last decades.
No two openings will ever be the same due to the individuality of the wooden planks we use in the manufacture of our products. Why not have an installation that is truly unique and talk to us at Camelot Gates about our range?
The trees from which our timbers are supplied tend to grow more slowly than others. As a result, the wood is more dense and resilient. Hardwood timber is extremely versatile and it is used in the manufacture of boats, furniture and musical instruments. It’s widely used within the construction industry due to its toughness and longevity.
We recommend Iroko as one of the most durable hardwoods available. Due to the high content of natural oils in the timber, Iroko is more robust and less prone to twisting. Regardless of the type of entrances you’re looking for – large industrial sliding gates or small domestic side gates – this timber is renowned as one of the best for this type of use. Other hardwoods used within construction are Oak, Sapele and Teak.
Hardwood timbers are darker in colour with a tighter woodgrain pattern. Their denseness is proven in the weight of our openings and the long-lasting service they’ll provide at your home or premises in Ascot, Oxford or Reading.
Whether you’re looking for front, rear or side-entrance openings, farm or commercial security entrances, Camelot Gates is the company you need.
