Here you will find the smooth finished Palisade style gates, which are based on a fully morticed and tenoned frame for that extra strength and durability using boat building glue. Unlike fully enclosed gates, these benefit more against wind, as the hit and miss style palisade (pickets) allow the wind to breath through. Chamferred/Rounded edges for elegance and character. With a made to measure service we have now made life easier for you to choose any gate you wish and have it made to your required size. If you have another design you cannot match from this website, please don't hesitate to email a simple sketch with measurements and we will happily quote you. All of our smooth Palisade gates are supplied untreated ready for you to stain to your desired colour (except the Palisade gates in our standard/budget range). We do recommend using a good spirit-based stain, and at least 3 coats for the first appliance. There are many brands of spirit stain available, but we do usually recommend using Sikkens HLS for the base coat followed by Sikkens Filter 7 for the additional top coats giving extra protection against UV as well as rain/moisture and fungae.
