Fencing Tips and Guides

Fences serve a variety of purposes and can be made from a wealth of different materials. In addition to providing increased security, metal fencing can also be used, to some degree, as a wind barrier.

Metal fencing can make an elegant statement and will last a lifetime if you halt the progress of rust, which usually starts where the posts contact concrete or wherever paint has chipped.

Our metal fencing solutions provide intense resistance to rusting, however if the fence has been damaged and then subjected to rain or frost, a rust patch may appear.

To control rust, simply follow these steps:

  1. Cover the area under the fencing with a drip cloth to protect nearby surfaces from stains, avoid contaminating the soil and reduce cleanup time.
  2. Remove any loose rust with a scraper and wire brush. Sand or grind the rusty surfaces to smooth them out. The goal is to make them look neat when painted, not to remove all the rust.
  3. To halt the corrosion process, brush on a chemical rust neutraliser directly onto the fence.

Powder coating is available for all metal fencing supplied, providing an extra level of protection against rust. All standard RAL colours are available, enabling the fencing to blend into its surroundings.

Carpark Barriers Turnstiles install and maintain a range of metal fencing solutions, all of which have a proven record in increasing security and providing a deterrent to intruders.
