What Makes Tubular Fencing Such a Good Choice?

Although there are plenty of other options open to you when you are selecting new fencing, few choices are as good as tubular fence panels. Many people in Australia opt for concrete fence posts into which they can simply drop wooden fence panels. Equally, chain-link fences are often considered to be the most cost-effective way of marking the boundaries of a property. However, tubular fencing is becoming increasingly popular because of the additional benefits it affords. Read on to find more about tubular fencing.

Additional Sturdiness

Although most fences are sturdy enough to keep pets and children inside, they are not necessarily up to the job of keeping intruders at bay. Nearly all wooden fence panels can be pushed out of the way with a carefully aimed shoulder charge. Even if they can't, it would only take a hammer or a crowbar to prise such panels from their mountings. Chain-link fences can be cut without too much trouble, too. On the other hand, the rigidity and integral strength you get with tubular fencing mean that they are virtually impenetrable. If you want to make sure that your property is properly protected, then there are few better options.

Weatherproof Fencing

Nearly all types of fence suffer from exposure to the elements. Sometimes high winds will push fence panels down. This is not an issue with tubular fencing, however, because air movement can pass from one side to the other unimpeded. Equally, wooden fence posts tend to have a limited lifespan as they will eventually rot in the ground. Even timber-made fence panels need to be treated with a preservative to keep them in good condition. By contrast, tubular fences will either be powder coated, galvanised with zinc or painted to keep them looking as good as they were on day one many years after they were first installed. No matter whether your fence faces exposure to sea spray, hail or even snowfalls, it will continue to perform if it is made from tubular steel.

Lots of Design Styles

Tubular fences can be made from lots of different materials. Tubular steel is the most common since it produces attractive round sections in the fence panels. However, you can also opt for box steel which offers a square edge on each side. Furthermore, there are several design touches you might opt for, such as spear-headed ends or ornate finials to make your fencing unique in its appearance. Of course, this sort of fencing can also be made-to-measure so that any height you want will be accommodated.

About Me

Who Pays for Adjoining Fences?

Hi, my name is Mark, welcome to my blog! As a new home owner, I’m learning a lot about the responsibilities of owning a property. Recently, my neighbour popped around and told me he wanted to put up a new fence between our gardens. My first reaction was that he should just go for it, but then he told me that I had to share the costs as we share responsibility for the fence. Before I agreed to the work (and to pay for it), I did some research and talked to a guy I know who works for a fencing contractor. I learned a lot about shared responsibility and rights with adjoining fences, so I started this blog to pass on what I’ve learned to other people who might be faced with a fencing project with a neighbour for the first time.
