What Type Of Fencing Lasts The Longest?

Debate still rages over who was the fastest draw in the West, but there is no arguing over our 4-foot iron fence for a quick DIY.

It is very easy to install, making it the quickest in the DIY fencing world.

Iron fencing has other advantages too, including that it will last a lifetime if you care for it properly.

There are more than a few reasons why the 4-foot iron fence is so quick to install and among them are:

  • Universal posts speed up the job
  • It comes in pre-made panels
  • The bracket system is simple to follow
  • Powder-coated and ready to go
  • Don’t forget the accessories

Let’s take a closer look at what makes the 4-foot iron fence such a quick install.

Universal posts speed up the job

Many DIY fencing jobs slow down because the posts aren’t quite right.

You will need to purchase corner posts, and end posts or 3-way ones on a wooden fence install.

Not so with the 4-foot iron fence and that is where the beauty lies for the DIY fence installer.

Iron fence posts are universal; every post will do the same job and getting on with the work is as easy as pulling the next one out of the bale.

You simply measure out the distances between each post and fit them to the ground as you go.

It comes in pre-made panels

You may have a picture in your head of cutting and welding the iron fence into place.

Nothing could be further from the truth in fact.

The iron fence comes in pre-made panels, and you choose the design before having the packs delivered to the site.

The DIY installer only needs to unpack the panels and fit them into place.

Short sections are not a problem with an iron fence.

Simply cut the panel to fit the gap size and our unique bracket system will still work perfectly.

Our bracket system is so easy to follow

Speaking of unique bracket systems: our bracket system puts the quick in quickest DIY fence installation.

Gone are the days of welding panel to fence and then waiting for the weld to cool before treating it with ant-rust paint.

The brackets slide into the hollow ends of the panel; no welding or fixing with bolts, the panels fit tightly over the bracket.

You then fit the screws into the pre-drilled holes on the exposed side of the bracket.

The screws are self-drilling and self-tapping, no messing about with awkward bolts or drilling holes to fit the size of the screw.

When ready, mount the panel into place against the post and screw it home.

The panel fits securely, and you can quickly move on to the next one to start the process again.

With this bracket system, you can fit the iron fence to an external wall or gate post very quickly.

Powder-coated and ready to go

The key to any quick DIY install is to cut out any messy jobs.

Our 4-foot iron fence comes powder-coated and is ready to go, with little follow-up necessary.

You will not have any worries about rust or weak welds causing problems.

Outside of checking for structural damage, tightening the odd screw and painting any chips, you will be fine for many years.

As with any fence however, you should have a regular maintenance schedule.

Don’t forget the accessories

Accessories make the fence.

We have a choice of fence post caps to suit any taste.

The picket tops come in a good range, and you can choose ornamental or security-conscious ones to fit where the fence is going.

Solar lighting looks great on an iron fence, and there is not any ugly wiring to run up the posts or along the deck.
