Posts – 145mm (6’’) square air dried seasoned oak for the post with four-way pointed top and routered grooves on two faces of the post.
Post Base – fixed 90cm deep into the ground and secured with a stone chipping & ash ballast mix.
Fingers – either 190 or 280 x 30mm iroko hardwood with a chamfered top edge to ease water run off.
Letters – 3mm acrylic 62mm high screwed with yellow passivated countersunk wood screws. Screw heads painted black to match the lettering.
Paintwork – All surfaces are sealed with two costs of a suitable wood primer and paintwork has three coats of (Sadolin Superdec) white satin, which is a waterbased wood protection. This applies to both new posts as well as all refurbished posts.
Plaques – We can also supply brass finish acrylic laminated plaques engraved with a
sponsors message. Plaque size c80 x 50mm, larger sizes can be supplied.
Future Maintenance – We can now offer an ongoing annual maintenance programme. Please contact us for further details.
Inscriptions are offered either on brass plaques or carved directly onto the top rail of the bench.
Carved letters are in upper case (capitals) carved directly onto the timber in ‘Times New Roman’ font. Wherever possible the inscription will be made using 1” (25 mm) lettering, but we reserve the right to substitute 3/4” (19 mm) letters where this proves to be necessary.
