Burbage metal and wooden gates, fencing and railing have recently been added to GardenSite, and last week David Coton took the opportunity to visit their Cannock base.
Grange are introducing several new fence panels and gates in 2017 and Andy Taylor has been looking at these fresh additions to their already impressive collection of timber products.
Grange have been making timber fencing and related products for more than 140 years, and they are continually adding new items that match traditional quality with modern design.
This year sees their Contemporary range expanded to include Vogue Panels in two sizes and a Vogue gate. Their design features a strong mortice & tenon jointed frame and slats on both sides that are planed and rounded.
Substantial and very durable, the panels and gate will ensure your garden's privacy in a most attractive way and can be used in conjunction with collection's arch, arbour and planters.
With a choice of three widths, Elite Meloir Double Driveway Gates can complement St. Meloir Fence Panels to create a fabulous first impression for your visitors. Very distinctive with a waved lattice on top, the gates are substantial as well as decorative with mortice & tenon joints again ensuring strength and stability.
Two new Ultimate fence panels and a braced gate are sturdily constructed in the same manner, with the timber fine sawn for a smooth finish.
The Elite Lille Panel, which has planed clean cut straight slats and a horizontal trellis top, completes the new year's introductions.
You can be assured that these new additions, as with all Grange products, use FSC timber that has been pressure treated for rot resistance and they come with a ten year guarantee.
