Slatted Cedar Modular Fence Panels
Our range of slatted Western Red Cedar Panels let customers create a stylishly modern and durable fence line. Fence panels should not just have to be something that defines the line of your property, it can be part of the landscape, something to admire.
Western Red Cedar is a great timber for our slatted screen panels, being full of natural oil which helps against rot and decay, very lightweight and easy to handle, cuts, planes and sands easily.
Slatted screening offers not only a modern and contemporary look to your garden, but also gives a great backdrop for planting, see our gallery pics of our screens in a Gold Medal winning garden at Tatton Park that was shown on BBC’s Gardeners world.
The Panels are simple to install with no special tools needed and being in modular sections are extremely easy to handle and install. Slatted screening provides privacy without the feeling of being boxed in like traditional fencing and allows light and wind to pass through the panel.
Please Note: We recommend using stainless steel fixings with the Cedar Fencing Panels, this will safeguard against chemical reactions with the natural oils within the timber that can result in unsightly staining if using standard screws/fixings.
What is a Modular fence panel?
Modular panels are simply smaller sections that build one on top of the other to gain the finished height, for example the 1800mm high panel comes as three smaller sections, these simply stack one on top of the other to gain the finished height of 1800mm, see our gallery pictures of our panels all these pictures are made from our modular panels.
Why choose our modular fence panels?
Coming from a background of fitting fencing for a number of years, we wanted to build a panel that was easy to install regardless of your experience, with this in mind we have designed our panels in modular sections. Modular panels are easy to handle, one person can easily install this type of fencing, although it does make things quicker with another pair of hands.
Modular panels are easier to transport, this keeps the delivery cost as low as possible and makes damage less of a risk. Being in sections means, if any adjustments are needed to fit your area, these are also much easier than struggling with one large and heavy fence panel.
The warm, rich, mix of colours from light honey, reddish browns, to deep dark brown, these make a great backdrop for planting and offer more than just a boundary line, the panels become a feature of the garden or area they are being used in. Our Western red cedar is very high quality, exceptionally durable, lightweight and easy to work with, making it the timber of choice for both looks and lifespan. Western red cedar contains natural protective oil that helps resist rot and decay, meaning no further chemical treatment is needed. Cedar can be left to weather over time to a silver-grey colour or to keep the warm rich tones, simply apply a clear oil containing a UV protector, these are readily available online. Our cedar is also sourced from well managed, sustainable forests and has FSC/PEFC Certification.
Weathering & Treatment Like all timber Western Red Cedar will weather if left.
What is weathering?
All timber when exposed to UV rays and the elements will weather, this is a process where the timber will turn a silvery grey over time, the time this effect can take varies depending on direct sunlight, exposure to moisture and the type of timber.
The weathered effect is preferred by a large number of our clients and in the right situation can look fantastic, giving an almost driftwood effect, however it can take time for this process to occur and while doing so the weathering effect can look a little uneven or patchy, to help this process there are products on the market that will help speed up the process and give a even weathering effect, Sioox wood Impregnation is one such brand.
