Chestnut fencing is a traditional product from the South-East of England which uses two or three horizontal strands of galvanised wire woven with vertical pales of split sweet chestnut (Castanea Sativa).

 It provides a strong durable aesthetically pleasing fence with a life of up to 20 years or more.

 Chestnut fencing meets the requirements of the British Health and Safety Executive and is manufactured to BS 1722  part4.

 Erection is simple with the minimum of tools and the fence can easily be moved to a new location. Chestnut fencing is widely used as a re-useable temporary site fence by the British building trade and by Local Government bodies. 

Chestnut fencing is used in private and public gardens, estates and public parks. 

Being a natural product, chestnut fencing looks good in every situation and improves with weathering and the passage of time. 

Unlike some other products, the fencing is made from sustainable natural resources from coppiced plantations grown on marginal land. In addition to its many other qualities, it is thus also environmentally friendly.

 Supporting posts should be 2" to 3" dia. and are driven approx. every 2.0m. (6' 6").   End posts should be 3" to 4"   dia. The end of the roll is stapled to an end post, the roll is then strained and stapled to the supporting posts in turn. Posts are not supplied with the fencing rolls and should be of  pressure treated timber.
