THE BENEFITS OF A BLUE DOG

Special Coating
Aussie Bred
Value for Money
Reliability
  • Special Coating

    The iconic blue dog is born with a pure white coat before growing into a weather-resistant double coat. 

    A Bluedog Fence works from the same principles, beginning with 100% Australian raw steel before receiving a zinc coating to deliver superior protection against corrosion and rust - we call it the coat made for Australian conditions.

  • Aussie Bred

    With Aussie ingenuity and determination, our innovative products have been designed with strength and safety in mind, and often exceed the Australian Standard.

    By choosing a Bluedog Fence, you’re supporting a home-grown Australian business and local jobs for a team that understands your job and the unique conditions you’re working in.

  • Value for Money

    With Bluedog Fences, it’s not just another fence. We promise to stand the test of time and look great for longer with our 10 year colour fastness warranty.

    Our products outlast the competition thanks to 100% Australian steel, superior zinc coating and a commitment to innovation to deliver safety, security and peace of mind.

  • Reliability

    At Bluedog Fences, we believe in doing things right the first time. Our lean manufacturing process is designed to keep our whole pack working in an organised, safe and clean working environment so we can deliver the highest quality fencing products, every time. Like all good working dogs, we’re dynamic, nimble and competitive - and always ready to work.
