  • Close Board Fencing

  • Trellis Fencing

  • Security Fencing

  • Security Gates

  • Protection Services

Close Board Fencing

We make close board fencing using vertical featheredge boards which slightly overlap and then fix onto the horizontal slats behind. This creates a solid fence that offers a high level of privacy and security. This is one of the most popular styles of fencing, and it can also be used as commercial fencing if style is more important than security.

Combine with a timber gate fitted with quality hardware for a premium finish that lasts. Lap panel is an alternative garden fencing style we can also supply and install.

Trellis Fencing

Trellis fencing has a framework of timber or metal bars which people commonly use in gardens as a support for climbing plants. This style also lets sunlight pass through and offers a decorative element to homes. It is a popular choice for an informal garden fencing boundary in St Helens, but it can also work well as commercial fencing in communal outside spaces.

The lightweight design of the trellis style, unfortunately, makes it an inappropriate choice for secure fencing.

Security Fencing

A security fence offers a high level of protection against trespassers, opportunist thieves and other criminals. It also provides more safety for anyone using your site, like children at a school. Security fences come in various styles, including palisade and mesh, and are typically made from metal. This type of fence provides protection for both people and assets.

Furthermore, when installing a security fence, it is common for customers in St Helens to also include further protective features such as gates and safety barriers.

Security Gates

A security gate provides an extra level of protection and it helps you to monitor who accesses and leaves a property. There are a wide range of options available to customers, including manual, automatic, sliding and swing gates. A security gate can include an innovative access control feature such as an intercom or keypad, giving you maximum control over who enters a home, business or site.

Security gates are a popular add-on for commercial fencing. Over the years, they have even become popular with homeowners across the region who require secure fencing and gates.

Protection Services

As well as security fencing and security gates, we specialise in protection services too. This refers to a range of features which provide a higher level of safety for commercial and industrial sites in St Helens including public spaces and car parks. The most common protection features include safety barriers, speed restrictions, bollards and handrails.

To maximise security, we can even install protection features alongside garden fencing and commercial fencing.
