Palisade fencing is a term used by fencing experts very frequently. What does it mean? In the old day, many decades ago, palisade fencing meant a stake wall or a paling made out of wooden or iron stakes.

Nowadays, the concept is the same, but the materials and technology used to install the palisade fencing have changed drastically.

A clear palisade fencing specification depends on the material used. We are going to look at the steel palisade fencing. Steel palisade fencing is made out of cold-rolled steel rails that are attached to running rails (horizontally) and connected to steel joists (vertical).

What about the height of the palisade fencing? And of course, palisade fencing gates? It all depends. As always, it will come down to the specific requirements of the fencing project. Whether it’s for commercial, industrial or domestic fencing purposes, the height of the steel palisade fencing will be determined by the surrounding environment and the risk factors associated.

Firstly, let’s look at similarities. Palisade fencing and palisade fencing gates come in different heights and widths, meaning you can determine them. Also, you can choose between single and double leaf fencing varieties.

Galvanizing is something most of the steel palisade fences and gates have. They are covered with a zinc coating, giving it extra protection from corrosion. That zinc coating usually gives it a silver look. If grey is not your favourite colour and you want something different, then powder coating is an option for you. The powder coating not only gives it the look you want, but it also acts as a protective factor against corrosion.

Installing gates involves some additional decisions. For example, you need to decide if you want a manual or automatic gate, swinging or sliding gate, or maybe a bi-folding gate. It depends on your budget (manual or automatic)and from the space surrounding your old gate or where you are planning to install your new steel palisade fencing.
