FENCING Awards 2021 nomination - Castlereagh Highway project

FENCING Awards 2021 nomination - Castlereagh Highway project

Castlereagh Highway project by PH Fencing in Gulgong NSW.

PH Fencing gave Australian Fencing Awards some key information on their Castlereagh Highway project.

Challenges involved in the project

  • Probably the biggest challenge was that this wasn't a request we usually get!
  • Our clients wanted us to build a matching set of double gates to swing at the top of their steps on the verandah in a style matching the existing verandah balustrade.
  • Researching the exact material required was the key.

Products used on the project

  • We used Design Pine 88 x 42 H3 handrail for the top rail, Design Pine 90 x 42mm 7 H3 for the bottom rail and sides and Design Pine 66 x 18 H3 for the pickets.
  • Braces were made from 90mm x 11mm F7 H3.
  • Paul used coach screws to install the Parliament hinges, D-latch and striker.
  • We primed and undercoated ready for install.

Outcome of the project

  • The gates were installed and worked brilliantly with the existing verandah.
  • Job done, happy clients and a happy safe fur baby!

This project by PH Fencing has been nominated in the Australian FENCING Awards 2021.
