Can I have a different colour trelis to panel?

Yes, as long as the colours are the 4 standard colours available, you can mix and match the trellis and panel to fit your preferences. You can also choose a different colour for the rails, posts and ball/flat-caps for a truly unique look.

What is the lead time from order to fit?

Generally, we advise the lead time to be between 4-6 weeks.

Do I get a warranty on ColourFence?

Yes, we confidently offer a written 25-year warranty on fence materials, and two years on fitting, providing installations are undertaken, and the fence maintained, in accordance with our specifications.

Can ColourFence be used as a retaining wall?

No. ColourFence fencing has not been designed or tested for use in this application. It is highly likely the soil will cause corrosion of the steel.

How do I maintain ColourFence to ensure a long life?

A regular hose-down will keep the paint finish in good condition. Keep the bottom rail free of dirt and debris to ensure the drainage holes are not blocked and water can run away. The fences should be clear of the ground at all times. Avoid over-spraying pesticides and other garden chemicals on to the fence.

What colours are available?

ColourFence garden fencing comes in 4 colours – green, brown, cream and blue.

Can I buy a fence in any height?

Standard heights for ColourFence fences are 1.0m, 1.5m and 1.8m and 2.1m. However ColourFence can be readily cut to any specific size on site, although there may be a small additional labour charge.

Can I paint over my ColourFence?

Yes, but we would strongly advise against this. The paint finish will be markedly inferior to the original and this will also void the fence warranty. Please contact the ColourFence Head office if you require further details.

What are the benefits of a ColourFence Gate?

ColourFence gates are manufactured from a combination of Colorbond steel and high quality pre galvanised, powder coated square tube. Available in a plain or lattice top finish they are ideal in situations where full privacy screening is required. They compliment any garden environment, with the benefit of being both durable and maintenance free, just like our fencing.

What are the benefits of a ColourRail Gate?

ColourRail gates are manufactured from heavy duty tubular steel and are ideal for situations where full screening is not required. ColourRail gates look equally at home as part of a ColourRail or ColourFence installation, and of course can be supplied as stand-alone products in their own right. All our ColourRail gates are manufactured and powder coated in our own workshops to our exacting standards and lastly, ColourRail gates are an economic and very attractive alternative to more costly wrought or cast iron.
