Curb appeal starts at your fence or gate. It’s the first thing visitors see—and also one of the first big investments you may make when you buy a house.
Palisade fencing is an ever-popular solution to residential, commercial, municipal and industrial perimeter security needs, as it offers both visual and physical deterrence; and, unlike other fencing solutions, it maintains an amicable suburban façade. Furthermore, steel palisades are unparalleled in strength and therefore incredibly durable. Galvanisation ensures rust resistance and added longevity.
The simple presence of palisade fencing is likely to make would-be intruders think twice. Another key benefit of palisade fencing is that it gives you a view of what’s occurring on the other side of the fence. This makes it easy to identify and report suspicious behaviour. Palisade fencing can make you, your family and any staff that you might employ feel more content and secure.
Palisade fencing is also well-noted for its durability. The materials used to create it are incredibly robust and are so strong that the fencing can last for many years before it needs to be replaced. Special finishing can protect your fence from rusting and add to its longevity. Palisade fencing is often coated with epoxy and galvanised to make it last longer. When the fencing is constructed, vertical joists are added to a pair of horizontal running rails. As palisade fencing often features single, double and even triple joints, it’s normally impossible for anyone to climb over it without seriously injuring themselves.
If you’re looking for a solution that won’t require a deal of maintenance, palisade fencing may well be the answer. Palisade fencing requires barely any maintenance. Most of the work will involve inspecting it every so often for loose bolts and screws. It is also noted for its short installation times. Once you have your neighbours’ permission, you can get to work on putting the fence up. You shouldn’t need any special permission from a local authority to install palisade fencing.
This type of fencing is also well-known for its versatility. It can be added to business premises, schools, sports grounds, homes and many more. The fencing can come in all sorts of heights, though most people opt for heights of up to 3 metres. There are two different types of joists available. These are ‘D’ and ‘W’ joists. The latter is even more secure and hard to climb than the former, though you can add the pointed finishes to either.
The lack of footholds makes palisade fencing very difficult to climb. The fencing can stand up to anything that the climate might throw at it and won’t ruin the look of your premises. Incredibly resistant to corrosion and rust, it often comes with matching gates.

Palisade fencing is also noted for the way it’s so cheap to repair. If a rail does become damaged, it can be swapped for a replacement quickly and with a minimum of fuss. As the fencing is normally made from steel, it is incredibly hard to break it down. As steel isn’t suitable for some environments, traditional wood is often used for places like schools and residential buildings. However, this doesn’t offer the protection that you’ll get from conventional palisade fencing.
When you are seeking a palisade fencing installer, it’s important to ensure the people carrying out the work are sufficiently qualified and experienced.
Two processes are used to install palisade fencing. With Soft Dig, the fencing is installed onto grass or soil. This doesn’t require as much labour or specialist tooling as the Hard Dig option. Hard Dig installations involve the fencing being added to tarmac or concrete. This is more labour intensive as the ground needs to be broken beforehand. As you would expect, this option is also costlier.
The durable materials used to make palisade fencing mean it’s not only difficult to climb but exceptionally hard to cut too. Aside from the environments already mentioned, palisade fencing can be found at waste recycling centres, airports, docks, railways, highways and many more. You can add even more security measures to your fencing if you wish. These will make it even harder for intruders to gain access to your property. These include razor wire, rotating toppings, electric pulse fencing, barbed wire and more.
