General Fencing Questions 

Q.  How do I choose my fence?

A.  The type or style of your fence will depend on its purpose or the reason you need a fence.

Q.  Why do I need a fence?

 A.  The main reason people erect fences is for safety security or style of the property.  The purpose of your fence may be to provide better privacy, reduce noise, better security, to keep children or pets in a safe environment, to provide a safety barrier around a pool, to divide the property between neighbouring properties, to provide a safe storage area or divide a space of any kind. 

Q.  How high should my fence be?

A.  The height of fence can generally range from 900mm high to 3600mm high but the height of your fence depends on what it is being used for.  A safety barrier around a pool generally needs to be 1200 high; a tennis court fence could be 3000mm high or 3600mm high.  The fence between residential properties is normally between 1500 and 1800mm high.  The height of a school security fence is normally 2100m high.

Q.  What materials should I choose for my fence?

A.  The material that is used for your fence is a combination of the style or look you would like to achieve, the purpose of the fence, legislative requirements and the budget.  

If you need a fence around your pool, the Australian Standards govern the specifications of your fence and this could limit the look or the materials you use.  If you live in a fire prone area the type of fence could be limited by the local Council to be Colorbond because it is fire proof.  If you need a fence around your tennis court a chainwire fence may be the best option to provide a high boundary and to keep the balls in your court and allow spectators to view the action.  if you are fencing a school a 2100mm high tubular picket fence is a durable, long lasting and highly secure option.

Q.  Where should my fence be located?

A.  Where to place the the fence line for your fencing project may need to consider the legal boundary of the property, and any obstacles such as the natural environment like rocks and cliff edges and existing barriers like existing side fences or gates and the access to the fenced area.
