Most Estate fencing is painted black but we can use any colour on the RAL paint chart and we have used many colours over the years and would be happy to discuss and advise. In any case, the steel bars are shot blasted and treated with an anti-rust primer before it arrives on site. We then re-prime after welding and spray paint the fence 2 topcoats on site once fitted. Whilst this provides very good anti rust protection please note that paintwork on both wrought iron and mild steel Estate fencing requires maintenance every few years.
Before finalising your design and starting the manufacturing process, we will discuss the project with you in detail, its purpose and your specific requirement, (ie is the fencing for stock, for driveways, for garden boundary) We will then usually make a site visit to survey the ground and to meet and discuss options with you personally. This is crucial to delivering exceptional Estate fencing and enables us to fully assess the conditions of the ground and to make sure the fence specification is right. It also means we can ensure the appropriate gate positions.
Our aim is to fit a stunning parkland fencing solution that exceeds your expectations and lasts for generations to come. So, with the performance of traditional Estate fencing largely depending on the quality of the installation, all of our fences are put in at a minimum depth of 2ft and deer fencing min 3ft. We never compromise on this – even when the ground is particularly hard; in some cases, other installers will opt for a shallower fitting fence, (and modular fencing is usually only 12-14”) resulting in a fence that is more likely to collapse.
Construction of our continuous welded Estate fencing is completed on site. Posts are driven 600- 900mm deep,6m lengths of solid bar are threaded in a staggered pattern to ensure no fence upright carries all the joints. Welds are cleaned, prepped and painted on site with a high content zinc primer and two topcoats.
The result is a traditional seamless fence with no visible joints, linking collars or clips. This means greater strength and flexibility, and a fence that will hug contours and follow graceful natural curves, or clean tight circles, or the shape of a driveway/ entrance. This is the real thing, not to be confused with the ‘Modular’ Estate fencing which is usually imported and sold in kit form, and we will guarantee its longevity.
