Types Of Fences Adelaide Residents Can Select.
There is a wide range of fence types to suit both residential and commercial fencing applications available for the Adelaide market. This article discusses the most popular fence types Adelaide residents have installed and what type of fence is best for different situations.
While the most popular choices are discussed in this article, there are other fence choices available; such as brush fences. The team of licensed fencing contractors from Visual Landscape Gardening will be happy to discuss and assist you with any fencing solution you have in mind.
Post And Rail Fence
Post and rail fences are the most popular type of fence available on the market and with 14 Colorbond® colours to select from, there is sure to be a colour that will complement your gardens theme.
Good Neighbour® Fence
The Good Neighbour® Fence does not have post and rails, so is becoming a popular type of steel sheet fence erected for boundary fences; between adjoining properties. Often called a ‘Panel Fence’ because it’s constructed by joining panels together, this fencing solution comes in several heights and a range of designer colours to choose from.
Notes on Steel Sheet Fences:
There are many benefits with using steel sheet fence panels, here are the main ones:
- Ideal if privacy is an issue, providing a solid private screen,
- Maintenance free if installed correctly; just keep the bottom free of soil,
- Many designer colours to choose from to blend in with the surrounding garden theme,
- Steel sheeting does not rot like wood and can not be attacked by termites,
- Cost effective alternative when compared to wood.
Aluminium Tubular Fence
Used in a variety of applications, aluminium tubular fences provide security without blocking your view. Popular with people wanting to keep pets and children from wandering, 1800mm tubular fences are used with gates at the front of a property for security, while 1200mm or 1500mm aluminium fences are ideal as pool fencing or for separating areas in the back garden.
There is a huge range of tubular fence patterns to select from in our range and an almost endless choice of Dulux® powder coat colours too. Aluminium tubular fences are maintenance free; just a clean once a year will keep them looking great for years.
Opting for a wooden fence is primarily for people who have a lot of wood around the home. Wooden fences can be solid providing privacy or made using slats to provide a barrier while still allowing you to see past the fence. Unlike steel or aluminium fences, wooden fences require staining or painting to keep them looking good on a regular basis.
Glass Panel Fence
Glass panel fence systems are a popular choice on balconies; especially by the beach and to provide security around a pool. Inserted between aluminium posts, semi frameless glass pool fencing provides a secure barrier without blocking the view and come in a variety of widths, sizes and tints, depending on your application.
There are also frameless glass panel pool fencing solutions that attach to stainless steel feet at the floor; called spiggots, making them almost invisible.
