Cheltenham Fencing has been a family-run business the last 78 years, so we feel a strong sense of duty to ensure it flourishes into the future. We are proud to have placed sustainability first as an integral part of this mission. Here’s the top five reasons why Cheltenham Fencing is the choice provider for eco-friendly outdoor timber products.
1. Carbon Negative Materials
In a time when plastic dominates many other markets, Cheltenham Fencing has remained steadfast in offering a natural, biodegradable, renewable, and recyclable alternative – wood. Responsibly harvested timber supports resilient forests, enhances soil quality, promotes biodiversity, and even contributes to better air quality. Sustainably sourced wood like ours absorbs more carbon from the atmosphere than is emitted during our manufacturing process.
2. Forest Stewardship Council® Certification
We’ve obtained the Forest Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody Certification which ensures all our wood is sustainably sourced. We are proud to source the timber for our core fencing products entirely from within the British Isles, where stringent forestry regulations are upheld. This not only reduces our carbon footprint due to low transportation distances, but also ensures our timber comes from responsibly managed renewable sources.
3. Efficient Manufacturing
Nestled in the heart of the Wye Valley, our manufacturing plant is highly energy efficient. Almost half of all our energy usage is generated by solar panels, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. What’s more, we handmake all of our products on site, minimising waste and maximising efficiency. By transforming traditional waste products into alternative products, we constantly reuse and regenerate materials. This means fewer emissions into the atmosphere and less waste in landfills.
4. PermaTimber® and Longevity
Our proprietary pressure-treatment method, PermaTimber®, provides the best protection against fungal decay and wood-eating insects. Pioneering the now industry adopted technique of incising ground-contact timber, our technique enabled a much greater uptake of preservatives compared to traditional pressure-treatment methods. This allows us to offer a fantastic 15-year guarantee on all PermaTimber® products.
5. Durability Lead Design
At Cheltenham Fencing, we produce heavy-duty, high-quality outdoor furniture that’s made to last. We only use the highest quality joinery components, combining timeless design with durable construction for unbeatable quality. By prioritising the longevity of our products, we reduce the need for replacements and repairs and, in turn, decrease overall consumption for our customers.
