About Us

About Loughwood

Loughwood Ltd are a family run business based in Northern Ireland. .

We are a leading supplier of creosote treated fencing timber throughout the U.K and Ireland and the sole importer for the unique Octo posts, the only fencing post with a 25 year guarantee. We also supply post and rail fencing primarily for equestrian applications.

All of our products are manufactured to the highest quality from Swedish redwood which is kiln dried and pressure treated with creosote. This treatment process ensures a fence that really does last a lifetime.

All our timber is sourced from carefully managed forests in Sweden, which have been inspected and certified to ensure their sustainability. We also sell products that are made to last for decades to ensure that the trees we use are put to the best possible use, and only the minimum amount are felled. The creosoted timber used in all our products is unpalatable to livestock, including horses, which reduces the risk of your new fence being chewed upon.

We are approved to supply farm fencing under the NSAI’s specification 436:2007. NSAI inspectors have visited our forests in Sweden to confirm that our products meet the agreed standards for the type of timber, size and diameter of the wood, timber preservatives and method of pre-treatment drying used.

We supply our fence posts to customers via a number of distributors throughout Ireland. Contact us for more information on local distributors in your area.

The Loughwood Story

We Pride Ourselves On Looking Long-Term.

Not only that, but all our creosote is applied using pressure treatment, which is used on telegraph poles and railway sleepers because of its effectiveness in preserving timber that is constantly exposed to the elements. Wood impregnated with creosote can last more than 50 years without maintenance. The creosote treatment protects against microbes causing the wood to rot and stops the fence absorbing water. That means it is equally hard for the weather to damage a Loughwood fence as it is for your livestock.

Our customers from the Republic of Ireland could be entitled to a government grant to fund or partially fund their purchase since our products have been approved by the National Standards Association for Ireland.
