Palisade fences are the most popular choice for industrial and commercial establishments needing medium to high level of security. Not only does it provide the perimeter security that they need because of the pointed edges and its design that’s impossible to climb; a palisade fence is impossible to vandalize as well.
They are commonly seen across the UK, mostly in schools and other similar establishments. Apart from the security it offers against intrusion and vandalism, palisade fences also register well when it comes to durability. They have a very impressive level of resistance to damages like rusting and denting.
Apart from schools, other high security establishments also rely their security needs on these fences, particularly the W-cross section type of palisade fencing. The structure and the design on a W-type palisade fence is deemed more effective in higher security needs thanks to its imposing look, and even more imposing structure.
High quality palisade fencing design is best complemented with electronic gates for better security. As with most other Smith’s products, our access controls for gates can be controlled locally or with a remote control.
At Smith’s Fencing the most preferred choice by our patrons when it comes to palisade fences are those that are made of steel. The material in itself is strong and stable enough for wear and tear; add to it the design of the palisade and you get a reliable, secure fence to protect your premises. At Smith’s Fencing we can customize the RAL color of your steel palisade fences to better suit the look of your property.

While a steel palisade fence – in itself – is difficult to scale, additional security measures can add more protection for your premises. With the addition of such things as steel palisade finials, you are assured of a heavier, better and tighter security in looks and in essence.
There are different types of steel finials that can be added to the palisade fencing. It gives the fence an extra ‘edge’ making it look and be more imposing and discouraging for intruders. These finials are associated with vertical bar railings.
Basically, there are different types of finials to choose from:
Each of these types of finials has its own characteristics and suit different heights of palisade fencing. Consult with our experts today to know which type best suits your security need.
Some commercial and industrial properties require better, tougher security measures and their palisade fencing with finials are not enough. And thus they add more security measures to their fences in the form of “Anti Scaling Barriers” to achieve maximum security levels.
In situations where security matters way more than aesthetics, anti-scaling barriers like razor tapes and barbed wires can be added on top of the finials on your palisade fences. These barriers protect your property from any attempts of intrusion better than any finial could do. While it may not serve you best on design and aesthetics, the grooves and pointed edges on these barriers and the potential damage it can do are already enough to ward off any thoughts of intrusions from lawless elements.
There are basically two types of palisade fence that we can install for you: the maximum security “W” profile; and the medium security “D” profile palisade fence. Their security capacities are defined by their structural design.
The W-profile stands at a standard height of 1.8 meters, and are anchored around triple pointed protection. This practically newer type of design has stronger folds and is basically harder to bend, and thus the recommendation for higher security needs.
