Making An MDF Gate... Yes, really!! #ad

PLEASE NOTE: It has been brought to my attention that there were a couple of mistakes made in this video due to the technical nature of the MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME panel. 1. You must use stainless screws when in direct contact with MTX because the low levels of acetic acid in the panel will corrode metal over time.  I have since replaced the screws (see follow up video: LINK TBC)  Full usage guidelines here:' 2. The panel will still perform to its guarantee, however in order to achieve the highest quality paint finish, you're best off using one that does not have calcium carbonate in it, as it can react with the panel and cause blisters. The edges and grooves also needed to be sealed to get the best finish.  MEDITE SMARTPLY recommend using one of their certified coating systems, available on their website here: 

In this video I make some external garden gates using Medite SMARTPLY's Tricoya Extreme MDF, which is a specialist exterior grade MDF.  This is the quickest and easiest way of making gates that I can possibly think of, and not only that they should also require very little maintenance and last for many years as the material has a 50 year guarantee and 60 year expected life span!
