Renewal of a picket fence that conveys a sense of “history and tradition”

Renewal of a picket fence that conveys a sense of “history and tradition”

22nd Sep 2016

In 1926, Don Bradman scored his maiden 1st grade century at 18 years of age, making 110 runs. He also took 3 wickets for 26 runs. It was his first appearance in Sydney grade cricket at any level. Bradman was playing for St George against Petersham, then considered one of the strongest teams in first grade cricket. Bradman broke his bat on 98 but managed to go on to score 110 runs in as many minutes.

Fast forward some 90 years to 2016, and Bluedog was engaged to manufacture and install powder coated tubular steel picket fencing around the sports ovals set in Petersham Park and Marrickville Park. The tubular steel fencing was Australian made by Bluedog using premium grade GalvaBond tube made in Australia by Orrcon. A partnership that Sir Don would surely have been proud of. 

The following is a short video showing the fabrication and powder coating processes through to installation and the completed project, and we have also prepared this Project Case Study.
