JOB OUTLINE: RETAINING WALLS AND COLORBOND FENCING

LOCATION: BRIGHTON, SA.

DATE: 21st SEPTEMBER 2016

 

Active Fencing and Retaining were engaged to build Retaining Walls and Good Neighbour Colorbond Fencing right near the jetty down on The Esplanade in Brighton. Retaining Walls were built to the builders specifications in relation to heights and location. Once the walls were built we then essembled to 2.0m high Good Neighbour Colorbond Fencing. Colour used for the fencing was SUMMERSHADE.

 

All the steel I-Beams were hot dip galvanised prior to the installation, significantly prolonging the longevity of the steel (especially being right on the beach and directly exposed to the salty air).

 

With a nice view and great tasting cafes around the corner, all the team thoroughly enjoyed this project.

 

JOB OUTLINE: FRAMELESS GLASS POOL FENCE FOR COMPLIANCE

LOCATION: MARION, SA.

DATE: 11th AUGUST 2016

 

Active Fencing and Retaining were called to supply and install a Fully Frameless Glass Pool Fence around the spa in the rear of this property in Marion.

 

Our objective was to install something impressive which would give this property the 'wow' factor as well as being compliant as the home was due to be on the market in a couple weeks. Without this fencing being installed, the property would not be able to be settled. This client decided to spend the extra money and do the Frameless Glass, as opposed to the cheaper alternative being the standard black Tubular style pool fencing.

 

We had to lift the decking (was a bit tricky as all the timber had expanded over time) and install sub-framing to which the spigots would be fixed to using industrial strength fixings. Please be aware, if doing a DIY, fixing the spigots directly to the timber decking WILL NOT be strong enough. These glass panels weigh 50-90 kilograms, with slight winds, and not being fixed to sub-framing, the screws to the decking will rip out and the glass will topple over.

JOB OUTLINE: TIMBER PICKET BALUSTRADE STYLE FENCE

LOCATION: NAILSWORTH, SA.

DATE: 7th JULY 2016

 

In July this year we were required to design, supply and install this Timber Picket Fence. The client had the front of the property cleared prior to our arrival (however we can do this for you too!). 

 

We used thick steel posts for the framing of the driveway gates and the single personal access gate. We also used larger steel posts to support the gates. We reccommend and ONLY use welded steel gate frames on all of our gates. This guarantees that the framing will not sag over time (like traditional timber) and also enable the client to motorise the gates now or in the future.

 

The height of the Picket fence was 1200mm and we used 90mm intermediate chamfered posts with decorative tops.

 

Very happy clients, even put ballons up to celebrate their new fence!

 

The design possibilities with Picket Fences are endless, and each job is tailored to suit your design requirements. If you would like advice, or a free quote, please call us on 0411 585 385.

JOB OUTLINE: TUBULAR FLAT TOP POOL FENCING FOR COMPLIANCE

LOCATION: WEST LAKES, SA.

DATE: 17th JUNE 2016.

 

Harris Real Estate required us to urgently complete this Tubular Pool Fencing a few days prior to settlement on the property. This was a cost effective solution which took us 2 consecutive days to complete.

 

Again, being for compliance, all gates had to self close from any position and open away from the pool. No gaps in fencing (including underneath, between posts etc) to be more then 100mm. Fencing must be at least 1200mm high from any point. There are other detailed factors also which can determine the compliance of your pool fencing.

 

Call us today if you have any questions about the compliance of your pool fencing on 0411 585 385.
