Are made from beautiful American white oak handcrafted by bespoke cabinet maker Anthony O’Shea to create the runners. American white oak was chosen by Anthony and his team due to it’s superior strength & quality when facing the elements.
Without treatment the runners will last between 8 & 10 years. If you would like to use a wood treatment Anthony recommends a clear wood lacquer to bring out the detail of white oak. The drill holes and cutting are all done by hand in Anthony’s workshop and therefore small variations of a few millimeters can be found in the wood cuts and drill holes.
When affixing the runners we send you 6 stainless steel screws. If you want a different colour, Anthony recommends brass screws as neither brass nor stainless steel screws rust.
Made from aluminium it’s cut by a local laser company we have worked with for years. The laser helps to reduce the rough edges that conventional cutting can produce. Incredibly important when using an automated coop door opener as it reduces the chances of the door snagging on the runners which stops the door itself from opening.
