The counter rail is an extra rail which is mortised into the timber fence posts to provide a finishing top rail.
The top of the feather edge boards are then nailed to the counter rail which stops the top of the boards moving over time and provides a stable and solid base for the Capping to be secured down onto.
Installing counter rails to your new closeboard or featheredge fence is an effective way of protecting your fence from weathering. If not over time without both capping and counter rails water will get into the grain of the timber and result in damage or rot. The combination of counter and capping also helps achieve a professional finished look whilst helping to protect the fencing.Dimensions and Key Information:
