Racecourse Fencing Overview

We know how tough raceday is. Our fencing systems are designed to be resilient and safe in the most demanding of conditions.

That’s always been our goal.

Fast forward 20 years, Think Fencing has become a world leader in composite horse fencing systems. With clients across the globe Think Fencing has a team of engineers and designers ready to help you with your next fencing project.

Optional Extras

Beer Rail

The beer rail is as the name suggests, a rail along one side of the fence to allow racegoers to rest their beer or race book whilst watching the race. This rail is usually made out of our woodgrain textured rail.

Running Rail on Top

The fence can be made with a Simtrack Running rail integrated into the top of the fence providing a seamless liniar look across the top of the fence.

Running Rail Offset

For parade rings and mounting yard applications an offset Simtrack running rail is often required to provide a safe distance from general public to horse. This can be customised to your specifications.

Gates

Think Fencing can provide custom gates to suit your fence design from an 8m wide sliding gate down to a 0.9m pedestrian gate.

Capture Pens

Using electronics and hardware mounted to our fencing system we can custom design capture pens for runaway horses.

Jump Wings

Think Fencing has worked closely with Racing Victoria to develop a custom solution that sets the standard in Jump Wings.

Track Managers Melbourne Racing Club

We developed a collapsible jump wing system with Think Fencing to improve on existing designs. We have been using this system for the past 5 year and its performing great. Think Fencing went above and beyond with several prototypes being constructed based on consultation with industry participants and leading jockeys and trainers.

Michael Kinna

Capital Projects Administrator Racing Victoria

During the construction stage of Murray Bridge’s new Gifford Hill racing complex Think Fencing sent Jack Fitzgerald on site to consult on parade ring and fencing design. The entire team was extremely helpful right from design consultation to assisting our contractor with installation advice. The fencing system looks amazing. We are very happy with Think Fencing’s service and quality.
