Our Process

Here are a few reasons why our product is the best.

  • Our posts have welded lugs for the horizontal rails to bolt on
  • All the mild steel components i.e.: the post pales and cross members are hot dip galvanized at Durban Galvanizing.(the best quality galvanizers)
  • The fasteners we supply are high tensile and KALGUARD treated for maximum corrosion protection.
  • The plastic injection moulded partse.: the caps and anti-crush buttons are made from UV stabilised abs.

What to do and what not to do?


Do Show the installer exactly where you are expecting the fence to be.

Do Bring to the installer’s attention any underground pipes, cables or plumbing etc.

Do Insist on care to be taken when walking in and around your garden.

Do Feel free to ask questions with your installer.

Do Lock your dogs away etc.


Don’t Test the rigidity on freshly planted posts; allow at least two days setting.

Don’t Climb on or over the fencing.

Don’t Remove the post caps as this will allow the posts to fill up with rain water.

Don’t Use a brush cutter around the base of the post when cutting the grass or shrubbery.

Installers don’t do the following

Installers don’t. Remove electrical installations, meters, lights etc.

Installers don’t. Re-build, repair or repaint walls unless otherwise agreed upon.

Installers don’t. Fill in the voids below the fence line. This is the responsibility of the Owner/Gardener. (The installer will attempt to maintain a flow with the top of the fence line.)

Installers Don’t. Remove rubble from the site unless an arrangement has been made in this regard.

Installers don’t. Pack old fencing away unless an arrangement has been made in this regard. (The old fencing is the responsibility of the customer.)

Signing off the installation

The following areas of the installation need to be checked before signing off with the installer.

  • The posts must be concreted in the ground in an upright position i.e.: 90 degrees in both directions.
  • The cross-members (the angle iron horizontal rails) must be bolted behind the welded flat bar lug on the post.
  • All domestic pales must have anti-crush buttons inserted behind them.(this protects the pale and allows sufficient tightening.)
  • Each panel more than one (1) meter in length should have a centre anti sag pale. This pale must be concreted in once the panel has been levelled out. (The centre pale is 150mm longer.)
  • In the case of the fence being installed on top of a wall the centre pale must rest on top of the wall. (The centre pale is 50 mm longer than the pales.
  • When baseplate posts are used all holes must have four sleeve anchor bolts to ensure maximum rigidity.
  • When a cranked post is used two sleeve anchor bolts are used to attach the post to the wall.
