Abbey Gates of Distinction is a division of Castle Wood Products Pty Limited, a small Australian family business incorporated in New South Wales in June 1976. It was founded by the late Alex George Favelle and his eldest son Robert.
From the outset it was decided the company would strive to achieve a standard of excellence as a specialist timber gate manufacturer.
The company motto, Pride in Craftsmanship is a constant reminder of the goals set back in 1976.
Roberts eldest son Andrew a qualified carpenter & joiner controls the production side of the business. He is available to give technical advice and assist in all aspects of design and installation proceedures.
We manufacture gates in two constructions these being ledge & brace and mortice & tenon. Ledge & brace construction dates back to the early Roman days whilst the more robust mortice & tenon construction originated in the United Kingdom Midlands region around the year 1911.
Over the past few years the company has diversified and now is well established as a supplier of Australian White Cypress Pine in sawn and dressed condition. Products such as weatherboards, seasoned flooring framing timber and decking are supplied by us. This side of our business continues to grow steadily particularly as more and more people learn of the highly durable nature of cypress pine and its high resistance to termite attack.
