Galvanised fence posts can be more cost effective than timber posts. QuikFence offers a range of farm fencing posts, fences and gates designed to save time and money for rural property owners. Securing any rural property, paddock or field is crucial for many farmers. Yet so many property owners choose to use timber posts to secure fencing, believing this will be the cheapest solution for them. Timber posts can be susceptible to attacks from termites, weakening the structure and risking the integrity of the fence line overall. Likewise, timber posts are also susceptible to fire. In the event of a nearby brush fire or even back-burning operation, timber posts can become a hazard. Each of these means more time and money spent on maintenance and upkeep of farm fencing. By comparison, galvanised fence posts allow for simple, efficient installation. Once installed, they are designed to last over the long term, as they are corrosion resistant and they do not present the same hazards as timber posts do in terms of termites or fire. As there is far less maintenance required to maintaining fence lines when using galvanised fence posts, this actually represents a considerable time and cost saving overall. The same principle is true of farm gates and cattle yard gates. Galvanised gates offer superior strength, keeping cattle and livestock secure and reducing the risk of injury. Aside from this, galvanised farm gates can be created to suit any width opening. They can also be fitted with wheels to make opening and closing easier, as well as fitted with remote control devices. These can be powered by conveniently located solar panels to reduce the need to run electrical wiring out to cattle yards or paddocks.

Far too many rural property owners understand the frustration of spending valuable time on repairing or maintaining farm fences and gates. Using cheap fencing products might seem viable at the time, but when you add up the amount of time spent maintaining these, the overall costs can be staggering. Replacing Timber Posts with Galvanised Fence Posts Numerous rural properties are fenced using timber posts with wire strung between each post. Unfortunately, timber has a tendency to warp and split over time, making the fence line less secure. Timber is also highly susceptible to termite attack, further weakening the integrity of the fence line. There’s also the risk of fire in very arid locations. Spending time re-boring timber posts can be frustrating, especially if there has been loss or injury caused to livestock as a result of the fence breach. This can be alleviated by replacing old timber posts with galvanised fence posts. These are incredibly quick and easy to install, and provide superior durability. As the posts are galvanised, they’re not going to pose the same risk to your property as timber posts will during a fire. What’s more, they’re designed to withstand prolonged exposure to the harsh Australian climate. They’re rust-resistant and termite-proof. They also provide a far more reliable post to attach fencing wire to. Upgrading Farm Gates Moving livestock or cattle between secured areas can be a chore. If your paddocks are secured with wooden gates, these can become difficult to open and close, especially if you’re dragging them across low scrub or uneven ground. This can also pose a risk for cattle, as these gates aren’t always as secure as they should be, especially when warped or cracked timber begins to crumble with age. Replacing warped timber gates with galvanised farm gates saves time and effort....

Sourcing good quality rural fences and gates can increase property security, but many property owners worry about the cost. Quikfence offers some of the most competitive farm fencing costs anywhere in the country. Securing individual cattle yards and paddocks using timber fence posts might seem like a cheap alternative at first.

Minimise Rural Fencing Costs

The constant maintenance and upkeep required on most farm fences and gates can actually end up being more expensive than most people realise. While the initial materials used to create the fences might seem cheap at the onset, having to replace or repair warped, broken, or damaged fencing components on a regular basis ends up costing more money and time that most farmers just don’t need to spend. The key to minimising rural fencing costs is to consider using the right types of farm fencing and gates that will get the job done, but will also not need to be replaced or repaired any time soon. Galvanised Fence Posts vs. Timber Fence Posts Timber fence posts might seem like a cheap option, but they have a tendency to warp over time. They’re also highly susceptible to termites and to fire, which dramatically decreases their efficiency. By comparison, galvanised fence posts are designed to withstand exposure to the harsh Australian climate over the long term. They’re durable and they’re corrosion-resistant so they don’t need to be replaced or repaired any time soon. Galvanised fence posts can be installed easily using cost-effective post-driver machinery. This saves time and effort on labour, while ensuring that the job gets done properly. Heavy Duty Cattle and Farm Gates Galvanised cattle gates and farm gates are ideal for securing individual paddocks or yards and keeping livestock safe. These can be created to suit any gate width and are provided with fully adjustable gate hinges. Gates can even be fitted with wheels to make opening and closing much easier than dragging heavy timber gates across scrub or grassy paddocks. Additionally, it’s possible to fit galvanised gates with a remote controller. This saves time and effort from getting in and out of a vehicle to open gates to...
