Charltons can now offer fully treated coloured gates.

This will be available for all softwood Gates in our Courtyard & Driveway Gate Range (excluding any pressure treated gates). Gates will be Vac-Vac treated using Wolman Wolsit KD-20C. By using this double low-pressure process, the wood is thoroughly impregnated with preservatives to protect it from decay, insects  and other forms of deterioration.

The gates will have two coats of your chosen Osmo coloured oil and along with the Vac-Vac will be User Class 3.*

Four colours are currently available:

Coloured oil gates






The oak is a tint and will have a transparent finish so you will be able to see the wood grain, the others colours will be more opaque in appearance. Oil finishes are microporous which allows the wood to breath.

Gates will be constructed as usual with mortice & tenon joints, with weather feature and choice of stile tops. They will be screwed with matching powder coated coloured screws.

The gates are supplied ready to hang, however you will need to maintain oil annually or when water no longer beads on the horizontal edges. The oils can be ordered from Osmo Retail. The RAL colours are Osmo Country Shades high solid UV Oils and colours are mixed to match the screws so please quote the RAL colour references above. The Oak Tint is from Osmo UV Oil Protection Tints range.

These gates will be made and treated to order. Please note that lead times will vary as the gates need to be fully dry prior to shipping to your stockist. Atmospheric conditions can affect drying times.
