Gate Post Recommendations

(These guidelines dep., on ground conditions)
Charlton individual gate posts are supplied from our LONGLAST range which is recommended for ground contact because it is treated to the British Standard BS8417. We only use Redwoods for all of our posts due to it, natural durability, we then naturally air dry the timber to 28% moisture content which ensures the pressure treatment is then absorbed and retained through the sapwood to the durable heartwood. The LONGLAST ranges comes with a 15 year guarantee.
