Treated timber is used extensively in post and rail construction. When treated to the correct specifications and installed correctly, timber post and rail will provide many years of trouble free service. When used in an equine application, timber post and rail should be electrified to avoid chewing damage and to stop horses from leaning on the fence.
Some of the benefits of a treated timber post and rail fence include:
- Safe for horses and livestock
- Natural timber blends in nicely with the surroundings
- Termite resistant
- Very strong
- Can be painted
- Electric tape or rope can be added at any height
