Oak Gates

Oak Gates have great strength and hardness. Extremely attractive in its natural state, with a clear treatment. Naturally very resistant to insect and fungal attacks owing to its high tannin content. 

Very attractive grain markings and looks great with our superior gate oil giving natural finish although it can be stained and painted. Not only matches traditional ‘old’ look but also great with modern houses. 

Treated correctly, oak can certainly last up to and above of 40 years!! Despite this, OAK is very prone to splitting and can have large knots that may need attention throughout its life. For example it should be used only if wanting a rustic look. If this is not acceptable then we would recommend an IDIGBO, IROKO or ACCOYA. These timbers are less prone to splitting/twisting/knots etc.

 Care must be taken when using with untreated iron and steel as it will leave blue markings which will detract from the beauty of the wood, the markings will not sand out so be careful! Stainless Steel is the best option to choose undoubtedly.

Gates made from oak are particularly heavy so it is great for garden gates and side gates. They can also be used for driveway or estate gates but when using this material, strong pillars or wooden posts must be used.  

Posts to Match?

 In addition we can supply Air dried Oak Posts to match you wooden Oak Gates, Note there can be large splits in posts made from oak which can be off putting. As a result we can also supply posts made from IROKO and Metal.

Since other companies are selling green oak gates and posts as these will warp and twist when they dry out. Therefore please be careful when comparing.

 We use a mix of the highest quality (prime/A grade) and Joinery Grade Kiln dried European Oak. Most of which we source from Border Hardwood, a local timber supplier. Additionally sometimes we laminate the timber consequently reducing the risk of warp/twisting even further. 

Weight is around 750kg per m3, but all oak gates will vary!

NOTE sometimes we may need to use laminated timber to obtain the correct dimensions. We try to keep Knots to a minimum but sometime unavoidable

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