Bockman Group Fence Adds Black Cedar To Product Lineup!

We are so excited to announce that we are adding “Black Cedar” to our 2017 product line of fencing.

As you well know, we at Bockman Group Fence are always looking for cool new ideas to work into our fences and this year Black Cedar is our pet project!. We are on a continuous mission to find the greatest and latest fence products and new and modern ideas out there in fencing and this one really caught our attention.  So, what is black cedar, you may be wondering?

Black Cedar is actually regular cedar wood but we use a special procedure to treat the wood called “Shou Sugi Ban.” Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese method of preserving wood. Its a method of burning the wood and scrubbing it to get the deep baked natural preservation of the wood and when its done, it turns out just beautiful!

There are so many benefits to black cedar that you are just going to love!

  • It is the best known wood preservative there is and it is thought that Shou Sugi Ban wood will last up to 80- 100 years
  • The colors are gorgeous and can be done in many different shades of black from full black cedar to lightly highlighted black
  • The preservative method is 100% chemical treatment free and completely all natural. If treating chemicals are a concern to you, you will love the Shou Sugi Ban method
  • You never have to worry about staining, painting or treating you fence ever again.

You don’t need to worry about getting charcoal on your hands and close because the method of Shou Sugi Ban cleans all the excess coals off the wood and leaves only the black color that is baked into the wood. You can touch this fence and not get your hands black!

Let us know what you think! A black cedar fence installed by Bockman Group Fence will more than likely out live you. When installed on Steel PostMasters, this fence is a truly maintenance free fence.

Bockman Group Fence Working With True North Steel

I just met with a representative from True North Steel from Billings MT and we have finalized a deal and we are now working with True North Steel as a supplier for cattleguards. The reason we decide to start working with True North Steel is because of their reputation for service and quality of their products and the due diligence they take in what they do!

Cattleguards don’t have to be an unsightly addition to your property and that is one of the reasons we have selected True North Steel. Not only are these cattleguards designed to last forever, they are available in a variety of earth-tone colors to complement your property landscape.

The cattleguards that True North Steel manufactures are also available in two different styles:

Economy Cattleguards are H-20 load capacity cattleguards that are fabricated from I Beams and 7 gauge rolled cap. These cattleguards are primarily used in county and forest service applications, small farm and ranch. Available in 7’5” wide x 8’ long.

Heavy-duty Cattleguards are welded, high-strength, steel constructed units that will provide trouble-free service for nearly any truck or trailer traffic loading and prevents the “Banana effect” from continuous heavy truck traffic

The Rolled cap steel U-shape design with the flat top makes the cattleguard very effective for livestock yet makes it easy for people to safely walk across the cattleguard.

We are very excited to working with True North Steel and look forward to seeing the cattleguard application in the properties of our valued customers!
