The components of a timber fence | The Timber Fencing Guys

What makes up a timber fence?

When you look at a timber fence you may think “What are the parts of the timber fence called?”

I know when I was looking for fencing contractors to build our timber fence, this question crossed my mind.

So, before you get a fencing contractor in to discuss the installation of the fence, it’s best to know some fencing vocabulary.

 

Main fence parts:

Posts

Posts are the main and most important part of the fence, as the rails and palings get attached to the posts.

For every 1 to 2 meters of fencing you will see a post placed in concrete.

Posts normally match the height of the fence and the standard posts are 100mm x 100mm wide.

Rails

Rails are placed horizontally on the fence between the posts. Three rails are placed between each two posts.

The palings will be nailed on to the rails.

Palings

Paling are attached to the rails. Palings are used to complete the privacy fence. Another name for these is pickets.

Other added features:

Trim Board

This is when boards are placed horizontally over the top of the fence palings creating a different look.

Post Toppers

Post Toppers are square pieces of wood that are placed on the top of each separate post, creating a classic fence look. Toppers come in all shapes and sizes.

Timber Gates

These are placed in any section of the fence that you would like to enter and exit through the fence. Timber fences are attached to the fence by hinges and close with locks.
