The paling fence has been a fixture within the Australian urban landscape for decades. Whether using hardwood or Treated Pine palings, Timber or Galvanised Steel posts, the paling fence can be constructed to provide a long lasting, attractive fencing option which is easily adapted to suit the contours of the site whether level, sloped or stepped.

There are three basic types of paling fences:

  • Butted – where the palings “butt” up against each other. Some owners prefer a slight gap between palings. The top corners of the palings are “chipped” to provide an attractive detail to the fence.
  • Overlapped – as the name suggests – the palings overlap to provide maximum privacy and no gaps.
  • “Lapped & Capped” – where the palings overlap ensuring no gaps between each paling and the top of the fence is fitted with a timber cap providing a stylish finish to the fence.

As with all of our fencing, we are able to include pedestrian or driveway gates with a range of locking options which can be discussed during our consultation. Paling fences can be installed at a variety of heights from 600mm up to 3000mm depending on the position and local council regulations.
