Gateposts

Sourced from long established links with the UK sawmilling market, the range of gateposts are made up of 100% pine redwood.
Pine is our chosen species for agricultural posts because of its superior treatability.

Info

Pine is our chosen species for gate posts because of its superior treatability.Not all treated timber is created equal.  The level of resistance of a treated fence post to rot and insect is directly related to the amount of chemical preservative in the fence post.
Brookridge Timber pine gate posts are dried to a moisture content of 28% or less prior to pressure treatment and the pine which due to its cell structure takes on higher volumes of chemical compared to other species such as spruce.
All Brookridge Timber’s pine gate posts are treated to User Class 4 which is the correct specification for timber to be used in ground contact as required by BS8417:2011 given an expected service life of 15 years.
