Yes they will. All of our panels (Lap, Closeboard and Decorative) will fit into the concrete slots.
In answer to this, you need to consider the following:
a) Cost - Closeboard panels are more expensive
b) Quality - Closeboard panels are manufactured from far more robust material and will provide you with a stronger more resilient panel. Please remember however that all of TimberClick's panels are fully frames and treated for longevity
c) Appearance - the slats in a Lap Panel are fixed horizontally, whilst in a Closeboard panel they are fixed vertically
TimberClick would recommend that it is good practice to re-treat with a brush coat stain every 2 to 3 years.
Your panel should not be in contact with soil or vegetation; a gravel board should be fitted which will prevent the damp rising and rotting the base of the panel. If the gravel board rots, it can easily be replaced. If the panel is erected above masonry or concrete, we suggest that the panel is raised 5 mm above the ground.
TimberClick recommends that you sink the post 2' or 600 mm into the ground.
If you are fixing/sinking the post into soft ground, you have 2 options:
a) Use post mix, of which we recommend you use 1 no 25 Kg bag per post
b) Use a fence post spike which can be driven into the soil and the post fitted into for support
If you are fixing the post onto concrete or masonry, we recommend that you opt for a fence post bolt down support, which can be fixed to the floor and the post fitted into for support.
Please remember that if using any of the supports, either spike or bolt down, you need to buy the appropriate size for the post you are using, i.e. 75 mm or 100 mm.
TimberClick recommends that you will require 2 rails for a fence that is up to 1.1 m high, a bottom rail that is 200 mm or 8" from the bottom and a top rail that is 200 mm or 8" from the top. If your fence is higher than 1.1 m you will need intermediate rails every 700 mm.
Most fencing bays are 6' or 1.8 m so you would set your posts to that distance. However, you may wish to construct a wider bay and we would recommend that if you do, it does not exceed 10' or 3 m.
TimberClick can supply all that you need to build your own fence:
TimberClick stocks Arris rail brackets which enable you to achieve this.
