Palisade fencing is one of the most commonly used security fencing options worldwide. It provides excellent protection and can be suited for different environments. From protecting industrial sites to securing schools.
Although, for someone who isn’t very versatile in fences – it can appear quite complicated to figure out whether this is the right choice for your needs. Or what do you need to order, to make sure you’re not missing any integral parts. Luckily, we’ve prepared a buyer’s guide to palisade fencing, to help with just that!
NOTE: If you’re looking for answers to what is palisade fencing, its applications, benefits, and how to install it we cover it more in-depth in another blog.
Palisade security fencing, as hinted in the name, is mainly used to provide a high level of security. Not only does it protect the enclosed area from intruders, but it also works as an excellent theft deterrent.
The height of palisade fencing ranges from 1800mm to 3000mm and 2750mm in width. The range is supplied with ‘W’ section steel pales which makes the fencing stronger and more stable.
Additionally, it’s sold with ‘triple pointed steel pales’, or we also offer ‘single-pointed pales’ and ‘round & notched pales’ as alternatives. While the posts can be ‘dig-in’ or ‘bolt down’
The top rail and bottom rail are also required to successfully set up palisade fencing. These tend to be 2.75 meters long and can support up to 17 pales. Although, we can easily cut to size on site for any smaller bay widths.
The palisade fencing kits come with (components may vary depending on fence specifications):
Moreover, palisade fencing requires anti-tamper fixings. Which offers a secure connection, with the top section of the nut being snapped off after installation.
The steel used in manufacturing the parts is also galvanised to protect fencing from rust. Moreover, polyester powder coating can be applied to increase steel’s resilience and give it a brighter look.
The powder-coated fencing can be ordered in multiple colours:
We also offer a powder coating service – to customise your fencing colours with RAL powder coating finishes.
Even though, setting up palisade fencing requires a lot of different parts - all our palisade fencing is sold in kits, which makes ordering that much easier! We also offer package deals where you can buy 50 or 100 bundled palisade kits for a better price.
If you’re installing palisade fencing – you’re most likely going to want to enter the area you’re enclosing as well. That’s where palisade fencing gates come in.
The gates are made from the same materials as fencing. Offering ‘triple point’, ‘single point’, and ‘round & notched’ pale types. As well as, having ‘dig-in’ and ‘bolt down’ posts & custom colours – to match your chosen specifications of palisade fencing.
Our range of gates includes:

Our offering includes a range of palisade fencing accessories. Even though, we sell palisade fencing in kits with the required parts for installation – the accessories which are sold separately are high-quality parts that aren’t essential for the correct assembly or are here to protect from damages.
The posts are sold separately to provide a replacement for damaged sections of your palisade fencing. Palisade posts are available in both ‘dig-in’ and ‘bolt down’ varieties, and can be bought as end kits, corner kits, and intermediate posts. They can also be galvanized, or powder coated to match your current palisade system.
Our palisade pales are available in four different types and can be found in a range of heights, so you can pick the one most suitable for you. Like our posts, our individual palisade pales can also be galvanised, or powder coated, so they’re uniform to your existing system.
Palisade rails are designed to suit 2.75m wide bays and are available as top or bottom rails that are suitable for any height of palisade. They can be powder coated or galvanized to match your current system.
Our range includes a variety of palisade fixings. Including bolts, fishplates, corners, end kits, and cement. All of these can be purchased individually where and when required to repair damages.
We also offer a Fix It Kit for Palisade – for the annoying occasions where something slightly goes wrong. Whether it’s a lost bolt or scuffed paint. The kit contains two straight fishplates, two M12 x 30mm Nuts and Bolts, five M8 x 25mm Nuts and Bolts, and a can of touch up spray paint (for PPC finish only).
Additionally, Quick Install Resin Kit (for M16 or M12 bolts) includes: M16/M12 x 210mm SDS Masonry Drill Bit; Injection Resin Cleaning Brush; Blow Out Pump; Heavy-Duty Resin Applicator Gun. Although, be wary as resin anchors are less forgiving for poor installation technique. But if done correctly it’s the superior way of fixing your posts to the ground.

It includes sharp 4-pointed barbs spaced out equally along the length of the wire. It’s made from high quality galvanised steel – suitable for outdoor environments.
Rotating spikes provide a non-aggressive alternative for anti-climb systems. These systems are ideal for high-security areas e.g., offices, banks, etc.
To install rotating spikes you’ll need accessories, which include: adjustable corners, sockets, and supports. The rotating spikes aren’t designed to inflict injury to intruders, while still maintaining an image of a strong visual deterrent.
Moreover, the rotating spike system is designed in a way to prevent anyone from grabbing on it to climb a fence, as the system rotates.
