A traditional timber gate leaves our factory with several coats of UV protector. This not only seals the wood from the elements, it also protects it from sun damage which can fade the colour of the timber over the years. This protective coat keeps it looking like new but it does require reapplying every year. This involves a thorough clean, light sand down and application of a couple of coats of UV paint. If this crucial maintenance is not done, the appearance and integrity of your gates will deteriorate over time.
Perfectly designed to look like real wood, these hollow aluminium infills are lightweight and made so that no further upkeep is required.
Textured to have a wood like appearance, the surface coating is durable and has been thoroughly tested in laboratory conditions against the effects of extreme UV, rain and sandblasting over a period of time. Beyond an occasional clean, these panels are guaranteed to look the way they left the factory for decades to come.
