Fencing

Good looking, durable and easy to maintain

When it comes to choosing a fence, it’s not just how great the fence looks that matters, but also how well it does the job, and how much time and effort it takes to ensure it stays up to the task.

COLORBOND® steel makes it easy to get the look you want. With 15 colours to choose from, it's easy to coordinate your fence with the colours of your home. Each COLORBOND® steel colour has been inspired by Australia's own magnificent backyard. So whether you want colours that are subtle or bold, light or dark, cool or warm, you’ll find colours that let you blend the natural charm of your garden with your home. COLORBOND® steel fencing comes in a wide range of panel styles and designs and with its sleek lines, COLORBOND® steel looks great on both sides of the fence. When installed correctly, it won't have any vertical gaps, visible footholds or loose palings. You can also choose the fence or gate design you want and personalise it by adding lattice, slats and post caps.

A COLORBOND® steel fence won't rot, it won't be eaten by termites and resists the progress of fire*. It is also easy to maintain, so once it's installed, there’s no need to be spending your time painting, oiling or replacing palings. So, choose a fence made from COLORBOND® steel; it can enhance the privacy and security of your home for years to come.

Tested in Australian Conditions

Here in Australia, our buildings certainly face some pretty challenging weather conditions from extremes of heat and cold, to dust, rain, wind and hail. And it’s for this reason that COLORBOND® steel is assessed at outdoor sites around Australia, as well as in accelerated laboratory testing. COLORBOND® steel undergoes corrosion testing, durability testing, application testing (to ensure it can be used in a wide range of building and manufacturing applications, and with all the common building products used across the industry) and outdoor exposure testing.

Fire performance

Whether you live, or are planning to build in a bushfire prone area, or simply want to increase the bushfire performance afforded to your home, COLORBOND® steel can be a key part of your bushfire design solution. The CSIRO’s research and investigation into the performance of residential boundary fencing in bushfires (download here) found that "a steel fence offers greater protection to people's homes against bushfire than other alternative materials because of its non-combustibility"....Of the different materials tested, pre-painted and metallic coated sheet steel (in this case made from COLORBOND® steel) performed best under all exposure conditions and in particular when faced with a 30 minute flame immersion test used to stimulate potential effects of an adjacent house fire, which is common during bushfire events."
