First mark out the correct post spacing. Next augur or dig a hole 300mm wide by 650mm deep. Fill the hole with a wet mix concrete mix and push the post into the concrete mix allowing the mix to flow up into the inside of the post.
First mark out the correct Gatepost location. Place the post in the hole and mark out the hinge location. Fit the hinge to the post making sure you have sufficient adjustment to correctly position the gate once the post is set. Place the post in the hole and fit the rails into the post. Before the rails are slid into the post block the ends of the rails with adhesive tape. Brace the post if required. Drive a single 12mm Steel Re-enforcing bar through the centre of the post into the soil then core fill the post with a wet mix concrete. After the concrete has set you can bolt the gate to the hinge.
All of Think Fencing’s coloured products are made from a PVC acrylic composite, the PVC makes up the structure of the profile and the Acrylic capping layer provides the colour. This is very important as coloured PVC that is not capped will fade very fast. Whilst we use the best products available today a 10-year-old fence will not look like a 10-week-old fence. (It will however look significantly better than a 10-year-old timber fence)
Think Fencing has a dedicated design and fabrication division that is equipped to assist you with all aspects of design and manufacture. If you have an idea we can make it a reality. Just send a basic sketch or an image of the style of fence you are trying to replicate. (We can also match colour-Subject to Minimum orders)
Yes, Think Fencing can make almost any gate design you want, Swing gates can be made up-to 2.4m each panel and sliding gates can be made up-to 6m long! All gates come with hardware made by D&D Technologies and are also 100% Australian made.
Think Fencing has been manufacturing PVC composite fencing for over a decade in Australia and has tested its fencing systems in the harshest of conditions. Think Fencing employs modern technologies and polymers to create the best fencing systems possible, and has tested them to in excess of 50 years. If a manufacturing defect is found within the life of the product Think Fencing will replace it.
The colours we use on our fencing products are not just a coating, they are a specific layer of Mechanically and Chemically bonded polymer that has been incorporated into the profile during manufacture. The result is colour that is durable, and is scratch and scuff-resistant.
Standard fencing provided by Think Fencing can already accommodate a 1.0 degree rake. Anything larger than this will require increasing the length of the slot by rasping it out on site or have Think Fencing provide custom routed posts and rails. Think Fencing can rake or step to accommodate a slope.
If the fence is to be installed around a corner with an angle between 0 – 45 degree the rail slot width can be increased using a rasp to allow for great angle or have Think Fencing provide custom routed posts.
Our fences are suitable for DIY. The most challenging part is to concrete posts into the ground and level the fence. After that everything simply “locks in”. Any fencing contractor or “handy” person should easily be able to install our fencing. Think Fencing provides detailed installation instructions and our staff are always happy to assist with any questions or concerns you or your installer may have.
Picket, Horizontal Slat and Post & Rail fences have a crimp on the rail and pickets facing outward. The crimp is designed to allow you to push the rail into the post but not pull out. Think Fencing hires the crimping tool to create the crimp. Mystique Privacy requires the rails to be tek-screwed in.
Think Fencing will always round up your requirements to the next panel ensuring you have enough materials for your job. All PVC components can be cut using a hack-saw, or aluminium cutting blade to enable you to shorten a panel. When cutting rails, ensure you leave at least 30mm on each side to slide into the posts. If rails need to be cut to shorten a panel, you may need to re-crimp the rail with the supplied crimping tool.
Think Fencing has a Post & Rail Mesh option available. You can also attach mesh to our other fence styles. You will need to construct an end assembly to tension wires for attaching mesh to. Think Fencing can supply end assemblies.
Think Fencing can drill holes in the fence to allow an electric tape to be thread through. Alternatively an electric stand off can be screwed onto the post.
