The estate’s previous fencing, some of which was over 100 years old, had to be removed by The Traditional Company before being replaced with its Highland range of Traditional Parkland Fence, as specifically chosen by Osterley Park.

Bespoke ironwork gates and end posts were also made to complement the new surroundings, and all steel used was subsequently galvanized by South East Galvanizers, and coated with Galvacoat® in black – of which Wedge Group Galvanizing is the only supplier in the UK.

David House, Director of The Traditional Company, explained: “As an official supplier of The National Trust, we know that they focus on quality and longevity and that they were looking for a total replacement at Osterley Park. They specified galvanizing and we called upon the team at South East Galvanizers, and the wider Wedge Group, to supply us with black Galvacoat® to remain congruent with the previous aesthetics of the estate.”

The future of fencing galvanized at Osterley Park

Neil Pearson, Commercial Manager at South East Galvanizers, explained: “Thanks to The Traditional Company for calling on us to support them with another grand project for The National Trust. Its fencing and architectural ironwork products are of a very high quality and are used at many large estates, new builds, and local authority sites. It is imperative that the estate fencing isn’t damaged by corrosion and rust from weathering, and lasts as long as possible without the need for regular maintenance visits.

“Galvacoat® is specifically designed to adhere to galvanized steel and is typically used by our customers for structures that are hard to access, large in surface area, and open to all weather conditions. Taking into account its overall lifetime cost, the finished products are significantly more cost effective than alternative finishes, which need to be re-applied more frequently. Galvacoat® produces a professional, clean finish and we’re thrilled with the finished result.”
