Closeboard fencing, one of the names given to any kind of solid board fencing, is one of the most favored types of fence for domestic use. It is usually constructed with featheredge boards and is erected using a rail framework; these are usually triangular arris rails, although the basic square rails can also be used. Closeboard is very flexible in its style, its appearance can be changed to best suit the situation, the height and length can be adjusted to the surroundings.
Lap panels are made to suit different budgets, this means that they also come with different attributes. The most common is the medium weight panel, usually labeled "fully framed", meaning they have timber batten around the outside edge. Some lighter weight panels do not have a batten covering the bottom (if using concrete posts you will need "fully framed" panels). Panels are available in a number of common heights; 3ft (915mm), 4ft (1220mm), 5ft (1525mm) and 6ft (1830mm).
Palisade fences, also known as Picket fences, are used when an unobtrusive fencing solution is required. The standard height of Palisade fences are 900mm, 1050mm and 1200mm, although up to 1500mm is available. There are 3 types of palisade tops available; pointed top (often called 2-way top), round top and square top. Palisade fencing, once erected, can be painted or stained any colour to suit; a common applied finish is the white painted palisade fence.
When used in the domestic situation, common heights for Chainlink fencing are 900mm, 1200mm and 1800mm. Chainlink is made in a number of different wire gauges, the thicker the wire the more expensive it is, but it is more durable and longer lasting. As with the height, the gauge size will depend on the surrounding area, maybe you just want a border fence, so the thinner gauge may suffice, but for pet control or security, the thicker mesh is recommended.
Steel Palisade Fencing
Steel palisade is an ideal solution for factory and industrial sites where security is paramount, steel palisade offers the very best in security at an affordable price. It has many benefits, it can easily be applied to slopes, and it has a low maintenance requirement and can be supplied in a range of galvanised or polyester powder coated finishes. Steel palisade can be supplied in 3 types of pale tops; round top (ideal for small fences and play areas), round & notched and triple pointed (best suited for security purposes).All steel palisade we erect is bolted together using "snap-off" nuts, this means that once it is up it cannot just be unbolted, again a very good security measure.
Chainlink is one of the most common forms of fencing used in the commercial and security sectors of the fencing industry. It's format gives both visibility and security. One of the best known uses is for tennis courts, but it is also used widely for securing children's play areas and warehouse or factory boundaries. Chainlink can be erected by using either steel concrete or timber posts and comes in a number of different sizes, with 1800mm being the most popular around commercial sites.
