What materials do you use to manufacture your fencing and gates?

At Fencemakers we specialise in made-to-order aluminium and tubular steel fencing and gates, like your traditional pool, security and decorative fencing. We also do aluminium slat and aluminium picket fencing and gates, and glass pool fencing.

We do not produce any wood or timber fencing or gates as we believe that aluminium and steel are higher quality and more durable materials. However, if you are looking for a wood-look fence or gate we offer a ‘Smartwood’ solution, which consists of aluminium panels coated in a timber-look finish. This gives you a timber aesthetic without any varnishing, sanding or maintenance required.

All our fencing and gates are made to order at our factory in Malaga. This means we can accommodate any size project and come up with a fencing or gate solution that will look great and be practical, no matter how big or smaller the job is.

Do you do pool fencing?

At Fencemakers we manufacture and/or install pool fencing and gates. We have a complete range of aluminium and steel tubular pool fencing products, as well as a range of glass pool fencing in both semi frameless and frameless designs. All our pool fencing is of the highest quality, and we guarantee all our pool fencing will pass WA council pool fencing regulations and requirements. No job is too tricky and we regularly do raked and angled fencing panels to ensure the pool fencing meets the necessary standards. Read more about our pool fencing options.

Does Fencemakers do driveway gates and gate automation?

Fencemakers does manufacture and install high quality driveway gates; and we can also provide automation solutions for these gates. All of our gates can be custom designed to suit any location, no matter the shape or size of the location – including ascending or descending driveways, limited access entry points and uniquely or awkwardly positioned sites. Fencemakers gates can be done in a range of opening arrangements including (but not limited to) sliding, double swing and single swing gates. All our gates can be manufactured to suit or match existing or new fencing. Read more about our driveway gates and automation options.

Does Fencemakers have a standard fence panel size?

At fencemakers all our fencing is made-to-order, this allows us to accommodate for any site or special requirements a client may require. Because we make all our fencing for the requirements of every job, we do not keep any standard size fencing panels. If you are building a brick wall and require infill fencing panels, we can accommodate any gap between brick pillars.

Can you provide custom built fencing on a supply-only or DIY basis?

Yes, as well as our full design, manufacture and installation service, Fencemakers also offers a customer friendly supply-only service. Fencemakers’ supply-only service can provide you with made-to-order fencing and gates based on the specification of your job, allowing you to install the fencing or gate yourself. This service is perfect for the handy homeowner, or for clients who do not live in the Perth-Metro area. but you might want to check out this resource before deciding whether DIY installation is right for your situation.

For regional WA clients we are also more than happy to pack you fencing or gate for transport, so they arrive safely at your home or business. If you are looking at getting supply-only fencing and or gates we can design a solution that will be functional, aesthetically pleasing and specific to your needs.

Does Fencemakers do brick work?

Fencemakers does not do brickwork for two reasons. Firstly, at Fencemakers we specialise in made-to-order aluminium and tubular steel fencing and gates, like your traditional pool, security and decorative fencing. We also do aluminium slat and aluminium picket fencing and gates. All our fencing is suitable to be used as in-fills for a front brick wall, and because all our fencing and gates are made to order we can accommodate any gaps between brick pillars. Secondly, Fencemakers also has a network of reputable tradespeople, including brick layers, who we can recommend to complete the brick work component of the job if necessary.

Does Fencemakers offer interest free terms?

Fencemakers does offer financing options, in particularly we offer 12 and 24 month interest free terms. All our fencing and gates can be provided on these interest free terms. If you are looking to order your fencing and take advantage of our interest free terms, allowing you to enjoy the product now and pay later, feel free to contact Fencemakers to talk about the financing options available.

Does Fencemakers do small jobs?

Fencemakers absolutely does small jobs. Whether it is a small pedestrian gate or a single fencing panel, we are happy to quote and complete any job, no matter the size.

How long will it take to get my fencing/gates?

Once an order is placed, Fencemakers’ normal turnaround time for a standard job is between two to three weeks for manufacturing, powder coating and installation. This turnaround time is one of the lowest in the industry for made-to-order fencing and gates. Fencemakers can achieve this because of the size and scope of our manufacturing operations, as well as the strong relationships we have with our suppliers and contractors. During busy periods, namely during the period before Christmas, our turnaround does increase, however we will make every effort to get your job manufactured, powder coated and installed as quickly as we can.
