What are the different kinds of Steel Post and Rail fences available in Australia?

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.
