When ordering Featherboard / Closeboard pales, the price refers to a single pale. The reference “(2ex)” means the pale is cut diagonally from a plank 100mm x 22mm section therefore creating 2 pales from 1 plank.


  • Allow one post and 29 pales for every 2.4m bay plus one extra post for the end of the run
  • For the 1.2m fence allow 2 rails and for the 1.5m & 1.8m fences allow 3 rails per section
  • You will also need 1 gravel board for every section

Remember to add 1 extra post to complete the fence run. 75mm nails are needed for attaching rails and gravel boards to posts. 50mm Stainless Steel nails for attaching pales to rails 1kg for 9m (Stainless Steel Nails recommended)

The rails used in this Traditional Featherboard / Closeboard fencing are far bigger and squarer that the more common ‘Arris Rails’. This gives the fence far more strength to avoid sagging over time.

The Traditional Featherboard / Closeboard posts are very chunky, and are far superior to standard 4″ x 4″ posts that have a side mortice. The posts are fully morticed through the face and give far more support the the rails.
