Cedar Gates

Cedar Gates are renowned for their high decay-resistance. Very light weight and stable, great for wooden gates, especially larger estate gates!

Cubic weight is 370kg.

The lack of pitch or resinous extractives contributes to its good finishing properties which means it can take a variety of coatings, paints and stains exceptionally well.

Western red Cedar can be manufactured into side gates, garden gates and of course driveway gates. These cedar gates are particularly stable and subject to very little movement ie warp or twisting which is very useful when producing large wooden gates.

Cedar gates like other timbers will turn grey over time with a clear treatment such as Tung oil, but their durability will not be reduced. These cedar gates are particularly useful in adverse weather conditions such as coastal or exposed sites or where the gates are particularly large.

TIP: when fitting it can be Advantageous to bolt all the way through the gate rather than using screws..

Cedar Gates examples

As with all timbers, Western Red Cedar will vary in colour and shade.

If you would prefer to have a much more durable gate, then perhaps you should think of investing in a hardwood gate ie. Iroko or even European Oak gate!!  We now even offer Aluminium Gates in a wood effect finishes!!

Wooden Gate Timber Products Ltd do not recommend to leave any timber untreated open to the elements as this is classed as abuse.
