Metal Panel Fencing Buyers Guide

Fencing buying guide

Keep outdoor space secure and private.

Metal panel fencing is a trendy way to set a boundary and when bought in multiples is also cost-effective and easy-to-install option for your outdoor space – whether you’re replacing what you have currently or starting from scratch.

Metal panel fencing can have many uses, and our wide range includes options for all spaces. So if you’re surrounding your garden for privacy, securing the safety of your children or pets or creating zones within your garden, we will have something for you.

Consider a few factors before buying your new metal panel fencing.

What is the fence needed for?.

To find the right design for you, it’s important to understand the primary purpose of it. If bordering your property, it might want a high, with minimal design to restrict people seeing through for privacy and extra security. If you're going to create different zones within your garden, you could consider a smaller, decorative fence with a more open design. With so many different designs available, focusing on the primary use of the use and this will help narrow your options.

What size of the fence and where will it go?.

Height is an important factor when choosing your new fencing. Would you like to see over it or not? Also, remember that if you can see out, others can see intruders on your property. If security and privacy are the main factors then, choose a higher fence with a panel with minimal design or a design that goes across the top, this offers a lot of lower level privacy, and with the design at the top, this acts as a trellis letting you see out at head height. 

If you’re looking for something more unique, classy and decorative, metal panel fencing is suitable to fit almost anywhere. Great for driveways, front/rear gardens and garden dividers – even install around your decking or on top of walls.

What you might need

Pick up fence posts to help complete your fencing project.

Metal fence posts with welded base plates are only suitable for solid ground. These have a 6mm plate welded to the bottom of the post with four 14mm holes, one in each corner of the plate. 

Concreting metal fence posts in offers a sturdier hold and has an extra 600mm which allows for setting into the ground. Both concrete and base plate options of fence posts are 30mm higher than the metal fence panels, leaving a 50mm gap from floor to underside of metal fence panel.

Timber posts is another option this gives you a mixture of materials using wood and metal. The metal panels simple screw to the posts with stainless screws using the pre-drilled holes in the panel for location. 

Garden screening.

Screening not only stylish but creates shade, privacy, and shelter from the wind in your garden, patio, decking or balcony area. With screening, made of quality materials, you can find a design that will suit your style and needs.

Enjoy the striking design when the sunlight is shining through it. Why not introduce plants into the look.


If you are creating a colour scheme in your garden, we offer many colours so you can match or find a shade to complement existing structures.


Metal panel fencing won't require as much maintenance and have a longer life than wooden ones, but you’ll still need to care for them over the years by covering up scratches or chips that could lead to rust. We suggest protecting with metal paints, as well as water-repelling treatments with metal paint to keep it looking as good as new and will prevent rusting.
