Our express delivery is 7 working days.


Which fencing system is the fastest to install?

It is possible to cover a lot of meterage quickly will all three estate fencing systems in comparison to other fencing types. To choose the fastest however, if the ground is easy to dig the panels and weld your own system is most likely to be the fastest system with the self-build kit taking a bit longer due to the time it takes to drill and bolt the 4 lower rails, this is done every three metres, the lugs are predrilled however to speed the process up.


What is the standard height?

The standard height we offer is 1.2 metres, there is some flexibility with this as you can simply raise the fence out of the ground or instead the posts further in. We can offer different heights for larger orders please enquire.


Why do we offer the 5 horizontal rail system?

We think this is the most aesthetically pleasing and is traditional. 4 rails look a little scant in our opinion.


Can we offer lower-straining wires to keep smaller animals out?

We can provide posts with additional holes to allow straining wires to be passed through.


Do we offer deer fencing?

Yes, we do, just provide us with your requirements.


What finish does our estate fencing come in?

All our fencing comes in untreated mild steel and is ideally painted on-site after installation. This prevents a paint finish from becoming damaged during installation. This also allows you to choose any colour or allow the fence to weather naturally it will still last a lifetime.


Can I secure my estate fence to hard surfaces such as concrete, tarmac or paving?

Yes, just ask for a bolt-down option, all the posts are 1.2m long and come with a bolt-down plate. These can be fixed to the ground with expanding bolts or threaded bar and resin which is a better option if the ground is not totally sound.


Do you offer estate gates?

Yes, we do, these are quoted on a case-by-case basis. Please provide dimensions and we provide a dedicated quote.


Do we offer an installation service?

We don’t offer an installation service however our panels and estate fence kits are really simple to install and if you don’t fancy doing it anyone with average DIY skills should have no problem. Failing that we can usually recommend installers.


Do I have to paint estate fencing?

No, you don’t, it’s purely personal preference, we are happy to advise on suitable high-build paints which only require a single coat these are liable in any RAL colour so don’t feel committed to black. Painting is a quick and simple task compared to other fencing types, it’s only five horizontal rails and a post every metre.
