Timber Lamination And Reduction In Warping and twist
All our timber except the Cedar uses laminated timber.
Although it is far more expensive than the standard timber the benefits we feel far outway the costs when it comes to producing a good gate.
So what are the benafits :-
It IS stronger because of its multi layered construction.
Its more Stable because its not like solid timber that tends to distort as it absorbs or expels moisture as temperature changes occur, hence it is less likely to shrink and swell
Less defects as these are cut out during the manufacture process.
Its reliable because the construction ensures the quality is consistant.
Its Greener because we us FSC certified suppliers, produces a much more efficient use of logs .
