Five Rail Cambridge
Spruce Wood Fencing
Rail Cambridge Fence is constructed using all premium spruce components, mortise
and tenon joinery, and stainless steel fasteners - truly a work of a fine carpentry. Five
Rail Cambridge fence panels are approximately 4' high, ship assembled, and are available
in 4', 5', 6', 7', 8', 10', and 12' wide sections. Treated or cedar posts may be used as
fence posts (sold separately). Our Five Rail Cambridge fence sections are built identical
to our Five Bar Gates. You may use these sections as gates, or fence sections. Pricing
found here is based on a minimum order of ten panels in any size - mix and match
is acceptable. We will gladly service a smaller order (less than ten sections), however
please order using our Five Bar Gate price page found here.
Gates and fence (in this case only) are made exactly the same.
Advantages: Five Rail Cambridge fence panels ship assembled, ready to hang to your fence post of choice using screws or nails (sold separately). Fence panels may be mounted in-between posts, or to the face of posts. End uprights of panels are 3" x 3-1/2". Preassembled sections mean no wasted lumber, less labor, and perfectly uniform and consistent horizontal rails and cross bracing 'crossbuck style' fencing. Superior mortise and tenon construction far exceeds most, if not all 4-5 rail fence available. Heavy duty top rail allows for an assortment of fence section widths, up to 12' wide! Cross bracing secured with stainless steel fasteners decreases the liklihood of rusting nails and screws. Planed smooth lumber and decorative corners accent each section, setting it a world apart from rough cut 4 and 5 rail horse fencing. View additional fence photos here.
Disadvantages: All wood warps, cracks, and fades. Although fence panels are made from a dense spruce lumber, stain or preservative is recommended, as with any wood fence, to preserve product. You may stain, or paint these any color you like. Please consult a paint and stain dealer for recommendations regarding fence and lumber preservatives.
