Love the look of red cedar wood fence panels but want the convenience of slot-in fencing? Look no further than our new Deco Framed design.
Deco Framed Cedar Fence Panels create a real alternative to slatted fencing. Rather than requiring construction with capping rails and screws, these slide straight into concrete or timber slotted posts.
Slot-in fencing so often offers a rustic look. Here the smooth planed battens with their narrow format fit comfortably into modern design. The framed construction—which incidentally makes the panels very strong—has enough of a traditional appearance, though, to let them slide easily into older surroundings. Just right when you’re itching to introduce contemporary detail.
The choice of five panel sizes means these are useful for everything from tall boundary fencing to low garden dividers. The slatted construction creates privacy while allowing light and air to flow through, giving the fencing a lighter character. Place panels where the sun strikes them to create gentle shade and enjoy the play of shadow created by the slats as the sun moves through the day.
Two stylish looks
You'll be hard put to choose between the bevel-edged panels or the square-edged panels. Square-edged give a more linear feel, while the contour of the bevel-edged battens add more of a 3-D effect. Both offer the warm variation of cedarwood colouring, ranging from honey to dark brown. If you wish to retain this mellow colouring, panels should be treated with a clear UV-resistant oil every few years. Alternatively, panels may be left to weather to the silvery-grey much beloved by garden designers.
Larch wood posts for cedar fence panels
To go with these slot-in fence panels we have also introduced larch slotted posts. With universal rising prices and supply difficulties, cedar wood is one of the materials that has really seen costs increase. For this reason, we are now stocking larch slotted fence posts, which also carry a twenty-year guarantee. Read more about which posts to choose, depending on how you want your red cedar fence panels to weather.
Don’t forget our other fencing designs
These Deco Framed red cedar fence panels are only the latest addition to our range of fencing. In red cedar we also offer slatted and privacy fence panels, designed for the popular streamlined look that affixes panels to hidden fence posts.
Larch wood fencing
Siberian Larch fencing is increasingly popular, thanks to its modern appearance and longevity. Even though it’s a softwood, it’s generally more resilient to rot than other, treated softwoods. It comes in a range of options, including the dramatic charred effect and weathered panels that look immediately at home. Like cedar, untreated larch will weather over three to four years to a silvery-grey.
Treated softwood fencing
Don’t miss a look at our treated softwood options—Venetian Slatted, Diamond Lattice, Tongue and Groove, and Lattice Top. We tell you more in Contemporary Fencing from London Stone. All these options are UC3 pressure treated and FSC or PEFC certified.
