What is Colorbond fencing?

Is a type of fence made from Colorbond steel.

Zincalume steel (steel coated with a mix of zinc and aluminium for corrosion resistance) is coated/bonded with a special colour. These colour coated steel sheets are then pressed into different panel types (e.g. rib configurations). These panels are also used in other applications such as for roofing. A Colorbond fence is made up of the Colorbond panels, posts, caps and other items (screws and bolts etc…).

How much does it cost to put up a Colorbond fence?

A typical price per meter is $75-$80/ per meter. However, the price will depend on a range of factors such as the size (small jobs are more expensive in $ per meter) and complexity of the job (more complex jobs are more expensive in $ per meter). The price could be as low as $70 or as high as over $200 per meter. Gates usually adds complexity.

How high is a standard Colorbond fence?

Standard Colorbond fences are available in 1.2m, 1.5m, 1.8m and 2.1m high. Custom heights are also available. However, there are certain hights required for some applications such as swimming pool fencing. You can check with your local council to see if you have fence height requirements for your property area.

How Wide Is A Colorbond Fence Panel?

Panels vary in width. A standard panel is 2.38m wide, however, it may be 2.1m, 2.365m, 2.4m, 3.125m, 3.15m or other lengths depending on the manufacturer.
