Cant fencing rail from softwood timber
Luxury Wood Company’s cant rails offer the ultimate fence pale support for close board and rail fencing. Highest quality pressure treated cant rails have a trapezoid shape and allow for vertical pales to sit an inch or more away from the fence posts, so rainwater will never sit on the rail.

Cant fencing rails are a popular choice among homeowners and professionals. They're used for a variety of outdoor projects, particularly fencing. A cant rail fence is not only structurally stable, but it's also protected from water buildups, due to the trapezoid shape of the rails. It allows for vertical pales to sit an inch or more away from the fence posts.
Follow the height/rail ratio as described below to ensure your fence retains optimal structural integrity:
- 2.4 m and above - use 4+ cant rails per bay
- from 1.6 m to 1.8 m - use 3 rails per bay
- from 0 m to 1.5 m - use 2 rails per bay
- Shaped discourages moisture buildups
- Suitable for domestic and industrial projects
- Trapezoid-shaped, sized 47 x 125 mm and available in two lengths
- UC3 Graded for “Permanent Outdoor Exposure”
- Pressure Treated with Tanalith E
- Natural, Light Green Shade

Is a cant rail better than an arris rail?
The type of rail you use depends entirely on your personal choice and preferences. The main difference is in installation - arris rails tend to be fitted between fence posts, while cant rails are fixed across the front of the posts. An advantage of cant rails is that you don't need to use notched posts. However, some say that their point of installation makes them weaker. Being fitted into the fence post does make arris rails quite strong, although an arris rail with a tapered end can eventually fail at the thinner ends. So it's completely up to you which style and installation you're going for. Both cant and arris rails will ultimately improve the stability of your fence.
