WESTERN RED CEDAR TIMBER
Western Red Cedar (Thuja Plicata) is renowned for its natural beauty and outstanding physical properties that make it one of the world’s most unique softwood species. This exceptionally beautiful wood has natural colouring in mellow ambers, reddish cinnamons and rich sienna browns. Its warm colouring is complemented by a uniform, fine-grained texture with a satin lustre. The hallmark characteristics of Western Red Cedar and its natural durability can be seen in working examples that still exist from well over 100 years ago.
Western Red Cedar grows on the western edge of the coastal mountains from Southern Alaska to Northern California.
Forestry practices are guided by the internationally recognised sustainable forest management system elements of ISO 14001. These high standards of sustainable forestry are audited by third party inspection agencies to insure compliance with the certification standards.
Western Red Cedar is one of the few wood species that are naturally at home in the outdoors. Mature Coastal Cedar is rich in decay resistant extractives.
Western Red Cedar offers minimal shrink, swell and warping changes due to it’s dimensional stability.
Western Red Cedar has flame spread and smoke development classifications that are superior to the minimums set by the building codes.
Termites prefer food sources other than Western Red Cedar, only in extreme instances will they attempt to consume WRC fibre. Our Doors use preventative treatments to ensure consistent resistance to attack.
The open cell structure of Western Red Cedar has demonstrated an ability to absorb and dissipate sound energy.
Western Red Cedar has a fine, straight grain and uniform texture that make it easy to cut, saw and nail with common tools. These features also contribute to its ability to be planed to a smooth surface or profiled to any pattern. Cedar’s freedom from pitch and resin make it an excellent base for all types of paints and stains.
The lack of pitch and resin allows Western Red Cedar to hold glue bonds from a wide range of adhesives.
At Gatecraft, we work with you to create a custom designed gate that is unique to your specific home requirements, personality and taste.
Every gate is constructed with only the highest quality materials available on the market, as the strength and integrity of each Gatecraft gate is just as important as design. This is why our gates are ‘Build to Last’.
Delivery & Installation
Once your gate has been constructed, one of our qualified craftsmen will come to professionally install your gate and for you to sit back admire your masterpiece. Alternatively we can deliver the components as supply only.
If the best solution for your home calls for a Swing, Sliding or Automated functionality then we can manufacture the right solution for you. At Gatecraft we believe a custom built gate does not just end in the design, but also in the little extras that can easily be over looked, as in the locking system. For this reason we provide you with various options to further customise your design.
