What are the key features of palisade fencing?
Palisade fencing is all-steel, highly versatile and provides good security thanks to its cut-resistance and climb-resistance. It comes in a variety of specifications and finishes. Our high-security palisade fencing complies with BS 1722-12 (Fences – Specification for steel palisade fences) – whereas some cheaper palisade fencing from other suppliers is not compliant. In addition, our palisade meets National Grid’s NG TS 2.22 (Technical specifications – Perimeter security fencing for substations and other operational compounds).

The steel pales can be D-section, W-section for higher security or other sections are available on request. Pale material thickness depends on the fence height, and the pale head style options are rounded, rounded and notched, single-spiked or splayed triple-spiked. Standard fixings are galvanised steel bolts with tamper-resistant shear nuts, or stainless steel rivets can be used to provide higher security.
One of the advantages of palisade over some other types of fencing is that it is easy to add extra security measures. Options range from barbed wire, razor wire and rotating toppings, through to monitored electric pulse fencing, concrete sills and buried pales. The gaps between the pales provide visibility for CCTV or viewing by security guards, provided the angle of incidence is not too great.
We always use our own teams of trained installers, not casual labour, so we can guarantee the quality of the installation.
Properly installed, palisade fencing offers long, maintenance-free life. Nevertheless, should the fence sustain any damage, we can readily replace individual pales or complete panels.
We have been designing, manufacturing and installing fencing for over 100 years, earning ourselves an enviable reputation for quality and customer service. What’s more, our family-owned and run business can trace its roots back to 1740. Today we are a market leader in fencing and gates, so you can be sure that we have the knowledge and experience to meet your requirements for palisade fencing and palisade gates.
A good illustration of our capability is a project in which we supplied and installed palisade fencing and gates for Iron Mountain, a world leader in storage and protection of information and assets. The company’s Aberdeen facility stores information and core samples for the off-shore oil and gas industry. When the site required upgraded security, we provided palisade fencing, a cantilevered sliding gate with palisade infill for vehicular access, and a separate palisade swing gate for pedestrians. The fencing and gates were all finished with a polyester powder coat in a shade of blue that complements the company’s corporate branding. We also supplied and installed Pro-sure358 security mesh fencing for other sections of the site’s perimeter. Iron Mountain was delighted with our work, particularly the speed of installation.
