Q 1. Where would you normally use treated timber fence post caps ?
On top of a 135 x 135mm fence post to dress it up.
Q 2. What is it made out of ?
Plantation grown Radiata Pine that has been H3 treated (suitable for above ground use).
Q 3. What are the important dimensions ?
Overall : 60mm Height x 190mm Width x 190mm Depth
On the bottom there is a 135 x 135mm rebate that allows the cap to fit over the post.
Q 4. How should you finish it ?
A water based primer/undercoat is not a necessity (although it wouldn’t hurt), but at least 2 coats of the final colour is a must.
Leaving it unfinished, oiling it or using a clear lacquer is not recommended.
