Featheredge Boards & Arris Rails

Arris Rails


There are many options available to you when you are building, updating or maintaining your fencing and the fencing accessories you can add to it. The fencing accessories can change the look of your border fencing and add to the overall effect in your garden or they can strengthen the existing structure you have within your garden with products like the arris rail or fence rails.

Featheredge fencing, or closeboard fencing, is a consistently popular option when people are choosing what kind of fencing them want for their home gardens, and our home garden range includes the feather edge boards, arris rails, and other accessories you need to install a professional standard featheredge board fence.

Why Should you Choose Featheredge Fencing?

Featheredge fencing is made from specially shaped feather edge boards that are wedge shaped in cross section. The feather edge boards are arranged vertically, each overlapping the neighbouring feather edge board with the points of the wedge on the same side of the fence. This arrangement of feather edge boards creates a continuous wall of fencing.

The overlapping of neighbouring feather edge boards in featheredge fencing means it is stronger and more robust than other kinds of fencing such as larch-lap panel fencing, picket fencing, slatted panel fencing, or hit and miss fencing. And this overlapping of neighbouring feather edge boards in featheredge fencing, creating a continuous barrier, means it is ideal for pet owners as there are no gaps between feather edge boards that small dogs or other small animals might escape through.

This also makes it a great choice for people who want to grow flowers, or fruit and vegetables in their garden as the continuous barrier of feather edge boards prevents weeds from growing in from neighbouring gardens.

Featheredge fencing typically offers greater privacy than other kinds of fencing as feather edge boards are usually tall so allow you to enjoy your garden in peace and quiet. This height, and the strength of the overlapping arrangement of feather edge boards in featheredge fencing means it provides excellent security against potential intruders trying to enter your property through your garden. So featheredge, or closeboard, fencing, using feather edge boards are a great choice of fencing for any home garden.
