Gates!

Hi guys
Calling on the genearl LCB public here for inspirtation, expertise or any other input
As below my gates need some new screening panels on them.
They are currently rotten plywood, I'm looking for other solutions that dont cost the earth, easy to work with, low maintainance?

I bought some recently from these guys:

https://www.gatewrights.co.uk/

Look lovely, made of hardwood etc. etc. But cheap they were not!


This guy does a lot of nice DIY projects, I've not watched the bulk of the video but he usually says in quite some detail how he's made stuff.

Show us what you come up with in the end.

Cheers,
James

replace the existing screening panels with feather edge fixed to a couple of battens, like a fence panel. Tanalised timber, should last a decent time, especially if coated. I've been using barratine wood preserver from toolstation - makes the timber nice and water repellent without the maintenance issue of paint, and you can slop it on with a 4" brush really quickly.

Sheet steel and a welder?

Perforated steel sheet? I've seen that used to back up steel gates and it can look very tidy.





The older I get, the better I was...

Sounds like the solution I'd go for. Pressure treated vertical feather edge boards on some horizontal battens. Got the same garden fence. Lasts a good time with minimal maintenance. Easy and relatively cheap to get the timber and DIY it too.

Thanks guys, the perforated steel looks smart, but I think I want to keep it not see through at all. Mr Kentons stuff looks just the sort of possibility I had in mind, so I will look into that more.....
