1. Products (Specification and Materials)

What are your products made from?

Our products are manufactured using FSC certified, pressure-treated softwood timber.

What colours and paint finish do you use for your products?

We stock our products in 25 exclusive colour options including a natural finish. Please refer to our Products page to see our attractive & complimentary range of colours for yourself.

For the painting process, we use a 3-coat, water-based system that consists of primer, undercoat and topcoat.

Touch-up paint is supplied with all orders.

How are your products constructed?

Our methods of construction are superior to most other trellis manufacturers. Our jointed, flush-faced panels have greater strength and a distinctive appearance, which puts them into a quality and durability class of their own.

We use sturdy 22mm x 25mm battens which are individually half-lap jointed where they intersect and are secured using stainless steel fixings, which makes for an exceptionally strong and rigid panel.

Do you provide a custom service?

We do not make any custom panels. We supply our standard range only.

Do you offer a guarantee on your products?

We do not offer a guarantee (standard terms and conditions apply). However, we stand by our product and would not walk away from any problem caused by faulty workmanship or defective materials. Please contact us if you experience any issues.

How long can I expect my products to last?

We would expect the timber to last at least 15 years.

The life expectancy of the paint is dependent on exposure to the elements. We would expect the paint finish to last for between 3-5 years under normal conditions. Please see our Terms & Conditions for more information.

2. Sustainability and Environmental Policy

Are your products manufactured in the UK?

Yes. All our timber products are manufactured in the UK by our own skilled craftsmen.

Are your products sustainable?

We use fully FSC certified timber. Please refer to the Sustainability page for more information about the FSC.
