Installing New Fencing

Hello, my name is Barry and this is my new fencing blog. Until a couple of years ago, I didn't think twice about fencing. I truly believed that there were only a couple of types of fence and that they all more or less did the same job. But boy was I wrong. When my brother-in-law Stan came to visit me, he explained that he had recently retrained as a fencing contractor and that he would be willing to do some work on my yard. I helped him to install a new glass fence around the pool and a lovely wooden picket around the exterior of my home. I hope you enjoy my blog.

What is Tubular Fencing?

Tubular fencing covers a range of lightweight fence options, this includes fencing that can be made from aluminium or steel. Tubular fencing offers a number of benefits for any property.

Durability

Tubular fencing is a long-lasting fencing option for your property. It may be coated with a layer or zinc which makes it resistant against weather such as snow, sand, flooding or fire. Tubular fencing is also not affected by pests or insects.

Design

There are many tubular fencing designs available. This includes flat tops, loop tops, rod tops, spear tops, ringed fencing and custom patterns. Tubular fencing can be coated with a coloured powder which not only seals the fence but also creates the desired aesthetic. It can be used by a pool or to surround a garden or deck area. There are also different heights and widths available.

Security

Tubular fencing is strong and can, therefore, provide a level of security for your property. You can also purchase tubular fencing with a specialised mesh which provides extra security.

Steel tubular fencing

Steel tubular fencing is treated with zinc to avoid rusting. Steel fencing can withstand heavy wind and pests. Steel tubular fencing requires little maintenance which means that it is highly cost-effective in the long term. Steel fencing can be occasionally cleaned but it must be washed with mild water as the use of other products may damage the fence. If the fence is not sealed with zinc, then it can become easily damaged.

Steel is very environmentally friendly as it is easily recycled so it can be used again in the future. Your fencing may also be made from recycled steel. Additionally, steel fencing is typically inexpensive to buy, especially if bought directly from the manufacturer.

Steel tubular fencing has an extremely long lifespan. This may be lowered in coastal locations due to the corrosion that can occur from the oxygen and water in the air. However, even in these environments, the fencing can last a very long time.

 Aluminium tubular fencing

Aluminium tubular fencing is typically cheaper than steel fencing. It does not rust or rot and the paint coating can last for a long period. Aluminium fencing is a popular option for residential properties due to its traditional open appearance. Aluminium fencing also tends to be easy to build. Additionally, aluminium fencing can also withstand environmental elements. Furthermore, aluminium fencing can be used on sloping or flat services.
