Fence Types

Hastings, Hailsham

Fence panels are an economical and quickly installed fencing option, but there are many other types of fences to consider that may give you a better looking, longer lasting and more cost effective alternative.

You may be looking for fencing panels to fulfil a variety of functions:

  • Decorative purposes
  • Define a boundary
  • Act as a screen or noise barrier
  • For safety and security

Not all fence types perform all these functions well, depending on their material and method of construction. Fencing panels provide a cheap, short term fencing solution for the first three functions but generally last only 3-5 years before the wooden fence panels need to be replaced due to damage and deterioration caused by weather conditions. However, close board fencing, especially when installed with concrete spurs, will prove a more cost effective alternative in the longer term as they can perform well for up to 20 years. Please see our close board fencing page for further details.

Fencing panels will not provide a high level of safety and protection for people or property as they are easily vandalised and climbed. Metal fencing, particularly steel fencing, being durable, sturdy and strong, is the most practical and effective option for this application.
