Why Choose Blade Fencing for Your Property?

Why Choose Blade Fencing for Your Property?

Are you looking for a modern alternative to the classic picket fence for your home or business? Then, blade fencing might be the solution for you. This durable, sleek and sophisticated fencing style is becoming a popular choice across Perth – read on to find out why.

What is Blade Fencing

Blade fencing (also known as batten or flat-bar fencing) is made from slats of aluminium, steel or wood, placed vertically or horizontally to add security and privacy to your property. Think of it as a modern update to the picket fence, with plenty of customisation options. Our team can install welded or non-welded blade fencing, or you can choose our DIY non-welded option.

Blade fences are popular for Perth property owners.

Blade fences have become a popular choice for Perth property owners for a few reasons: 


Blade fencing is a great way to improve security on your property, as we can make it to various height specifications with the option for slanted top edges. You can also use blade fencing to create a secure gate for your property.


A blade fence will add privacy to your home or business while maintaining a sleek and sophisticated look. Slats are available in various sizes, so we recommend choosing wider slats placed close together to create a privacy fence that still allows airflow.


Customisation options are endless with blade fences. To create the perfect fence for your property, you can choose from different heights, colours, blade widths, blade spacing, top profile types, and rail types. There’s also the option to add a matching gate.


Blade fencing made from aluminium or steel can last a lifetime, requiring little to no maintenance. It’s the perfect choice for Perth’s harsh environment, as it can withstand coastal corrosion, extreme summer UV and strong winds and rain. As it’s rust-resistant, blade pool fencing is also becoming popular in Perth.

Modern Sophistication

Blade fences look sleek, modern and sophisticated while providing excellent levels of privacy and security.
