Tunbridge® Steel Picket Fencing

Find your fence

 
A front fence can be a decorative feature that makes an open space or your home that bit more attractive. Choose our Tunbridge® steel picket fencing for a fence that is durable, elegant, and makes the right impression.

PRODUCT OUTLINE

Tunbridge® steel picket fencing uses a finer steel picket profile that looks great as the front fence of a house or garden. It can also be used to enclose sporting ovals or to simply enhance the amenity and aesthetics of open space areas. The tubular steel design retains the heritage feel of a traditional timber picket fence but is stronger and requires much less maintenance. The standard assembly consists of 2400mm long panels with 50x10mm uprights welded to horizontal rails and secured to posts with proprietary security bracket and anti-tamper fastenings.

The premium grade pre-galvanised steel surface is meticulously cleaned and prepared in a 7-stage chemical pre-treatment process and finished in a highly durable polyester powder coat that will look great for years to come. The fencing and gate system is pre-fabricated and is assembled readily on site with no need for cutting and welding. See also our Headingly® steel picket range.

  • Easier and safer operation of gates way of proprietary lubricated heavy duty hinges and locking hardware.
  • Superior aesthetic outcome by way of the design and high coating finish.
  • Option for greater vandal resistance by way of the proprietary security bracket design and anti-tamper fastenings.

• For basic applications we can supply a low cost, light weight pressed steel shroud (1mm gauge) that is zinc plated. This shroud has two fixing diagonal fixing points to the post – in line with the panel - and one to the rail of the panel. We supply a color matched self-drilling tek screw in either 10 or 12 gauge to suit.
• For security applications we recommend our SmartaBracket® steel security bracket (3mm gauge) that is much stronger and vandal resistant than a shroud preventing theft of the panels or unauthorised access to a property. The bracket is hot dip galvanised, rather than zinc plated, after fabrication making it much more corrosion resistant and long lasting. The bracket encloses the rail and fixes to the non-attack side of the post making the bracket quicker to install. This bracket has two fixing points to the post and one to the rail of the panel. We can supply a 12 gauge self drilling tek screw with a standard hex drive or anti-tamper drive.

• For low to medium duty applications we recommend our low cost swing gates made with 40x40x1.6mm stiles and rails, with twin bottom rails up to a maximum leaf width of 2381mm.
• For higher duty applications we recommend a swing gate made with 65x65x2mm stiles and 65x65x1.6mm rails, with twin bottom rails up to a maximum leaf width of 2381mm.

• For low to medium duty applications we recommend a low cost ball bearing hinge that is secured to the gate stile and gate post with a combination of M8 bolts and 14g self-drilling tek screws.
• For higher duty applications we recommend one of our Eternity® hinges that combine a sealed bearing hinge at the top and a greasable tapered roller bearing at the bottom. These hinges have a much higher capacity in terms of the weight and length of the gate and will give years of trouble free service. The top hinge can be adjusted to raise or lower the level of the gate leaf. The assembly consists of a post bracket that is screwed to the gate post with four M10 stainless steel fasteners and a bracket that inserts into the gate stile.

• For low duty applications we recommend a D-latch and strike that are readily fitted on site.
• For standard applications we recommend our Bolt’nLock® Ø20mm slide bolt and Ø16mm drop bolt combination. These units are easily fitted on site and suit a standard padlock. This system is low cost but much stronger than light weight domestic units. We supply 14 gauge self drilling tek screws with a standard hex drive to fit on site.

• Polyester powder coat that will give a tough and long lasting colored finish to the fence.
• Zinc rich epoxy primer under coat to suit higher corrosion environments.
• Anti-graffiti coating that assists easier removal of graffiti.
