Material Selection Guide

Gate & Fence Material Selection Guide

All our gates and fences can be made from steel, wrought iron, Colorbond and wood and our pool fences can also be made out of glass. Below is some more information about the different materials to help you choose the right material for your gate or fence.

Steel Gates and Fences

Steel Gates and Fences

Steel is our most commonly used material. A gate or fence made out of tubular steel will be strong and durable.
It is important to remember that a gate made out of tubular steel frame can still have infill panels made out of wrought iron, Colorbond or wood. A steel frame with wrought iron infill is a great way to get a rustic looking gate that is affordable, strong and durable.

Steel is also easily customisable, making it a good choice for custom-made designs.
Over the years we have constantly improved our Hot-Dip Galvanise and Powder Coating facilities and methods. We believe we produce some of the strongest, most durable and corrosion resistant steel gates and fences in WA, so that your gate will look great for years to come. Steel gates and fences are also very affordable and are a great choice for higher security places due to their strength.

Wrought Iron Gates and Fence

Wrought Iron Gates and Fence

For that rustic, prestigious look you can't go past wrought iron. Wrought iron has become a very popular choice for gates and fences due to its classic look and artistic appeal. It is strong and with our Powder Coating it will look great for years. For a really impressive gate we can create a custom design to suit you specifically. Wrought iron can also be a good choice for pool fencing as it gives a luxurious feel to the pool area. While wrought iron can be more expensive than steel, SGS offers a tubular steel frame with wrought iron inserts and infills to keep costs down.

Colorbond Gates and Fences

Colorbond Gates and Fences

Colorbond is a popular material for gates and fences because it is affordable and durable. Colorbond fences and gates keep your house from view and can help in reducing noise. This makes Colorbond gates and fences a good choice for subdivision fencing. Colorbond fences come in many colours and do not rust or deform over time. Colorbond is an excellent material for securing your home or business while keeping costs down.

Wooden Gates and Fences

Wooden Gates and Fences

For a warmer, more natural feel for your home or backyard, wood is the right choice. Timber is also excellent at absorbing sound which makes wooden gates and fences a good choice for houses close to main roads. Picket front yard fencing is one of the common designs of wooden fencing that we provide. Wood is also often used for pedestrian gates, as it gives a warmer feel to the entrance. Garden fences can also be made out of wood and give a natural feel to the backyard. Though there are many treatment options to ensure your wooden fence lasts, wood is not as durable as metal. To get a strong and durable fence while still keeping the natural element, we often use steel posts or railings with a timber panel infill.

Like our fences, our gates can also be made out of wood. To keep gates sturdy and to prevent them from morphing over time, it's a good idea to have a steel frame with wooden infill. This is particularly important if the gate is to be automated. A steel frame gate with infill wooden panels will give a modern yet natural feel, reduce noise and look great.

Glass Pool Fencing

Glass Pool Fencing

Glass pool fencing is emerging as one of the most popular pool fencing options. It is completely safe and we install it in accordance with the appropriate rules and regulations. Glass pool fencing does not usually require anything to be done to your pool or backyard beforehand. Glass pool fencing is strong and does not require any maintenance.

Glass pool fencing allows the pool to remain as the aesthetic feature of a backyard and also lets you keep an eye on what is happening at the pool. Because glass does not corrode it is a good choice of material for a pool or spa environment. Since glass pool fencing is 'full', it also acts as a splash barrier which can be important if you don't want your lawn or garden coming in contact with any salt or chlorine water.
Glass pool fencing is more expensive than wood or steel but also offers a lot more.
