If you start looking at options for Steel fencing for horse properties, you will come across three types of Post and Rail prevalent currently:
1. Cattle Rail or Steel Pipe Fences
This is a standard Cattle Rail fencing that you can purchase from a local steel store, your fencing supplier, or source it directly from a steel company. It will then be cut on site and installed. It’s galvanised but not painted or powder coated.
2. Powder-Coated Steel Pipe Fences
A couple of companies in Australia source Steel Pipe fences from local steel companies, pre-cut and powder coat them. They are Post and Rail from Dunn and Furrugia and TopRail from Blue Dog Fences. These Pipe steel fences are tubular in shape, pre-galvanised and are available with round and square posts. You can choose your shade of Steel Fences from a wide variety of colours.
3. Engineered Fencing System
Buckley is the only brand that makes an engineered Steel Fencing System. Buckley Steel Fence is made with 2-side pre-galvanised steel, treated with a phosphate conversion coating for added protection and finished with an architectural grade polyester powder coat. It’s dimensions are closer to a Timber board fence in looks with long wide rails. There are no screws, no welding, and it is available in only two high visibility colours of black and white.
