Keywords: Rails

MLFP rails typically come in 2 to 3 inch and 3 to 4 inch diameters -- however, thicker rails can be made to suit custom orders.

Rails are available in lengths ranging from 10 feet to 16 feet with both ends blunt.

Rails are available with or without pressure treating. The treatment of rails is done here at Monte Lake to maintain the high quality that has come to be expected of MLFP rails.

Rails are mainly used in fencing and ranch gates, but they can also be used for barns, sheds or other vertical constructions. The untreated rails can be used for corrals or other applications that involve animals.

Monte Lake Forest Products - dowels

Dowels For custom orders, MLFP can tenon the dowels and the dowels can be used with posts that are pre-drilled with holes to create an impressive all-wood fence. Treated dowels can be used for horse rings, landscape fencing to provide a uniform look, as well as any other use where a more formal look is desired. All of our dowel products are uniform in diameter, blunt at both ends and are available either treated or untreated.


Monte Lake Forest Products - treatment

Untreated wood posts may fail in as little as a year; our pressure treatment process forces the preservative into the wood's cellular structure to provide a longer lasting, in-depth protection from fungal decay and termites. The facility also includes a drying / warming tent, used to dry the wood to an ideal moisture content that will allow the untreated product to accept the correct amount of Chromated Copper Arsenate treatment.
