How to paint palisade fencing

how to paint a palisade fence
When you go to the expense of installing palisade fencing around your home, you want it to not only provide security but look good too. Because palisade fencing is generally made of steel - it requires regular maintenance to keep it in tip-top condition. Here are some tips from Plascon Metalcare on painting and maintaining a palisade fence.

STEP 1:

Use Plascon RemovALL All Purpose Paint Remover to remove all flaking and peeling paint.This product is a brushable,water-based paint remover that is biodegradable, user-friendly and environmentally safe. It is extremely effective in removing the toughest industrial coatings, like epoxies and urethanes, from metal, concrete, wood, masonry, and brick. Any rust can be treated by using Polycell End Rust to create an impervious film on the metal. Please note that a rust remover/converter should not be used on galvanised iron.metalcare degreaser

GOOD TO KNOW

On walls with palisade panels, place newspaper under the fencing to prevent drips and runs.

STEP 2:

Apply Plascon Metalcare Waterbased Degreaser to the fence and rinse well with clean water. Allow to dry.
Plascon Metalcare Waterbased Degreaser is a non-abrasive and fully biodegradable water- and citrus-based cleaner that removes oil, grease and grime from surfaces.

STEP 3:
Use a paint brush to apply Plascon Metalcare Waterbased Primer for an extremely high protective barrier. The unique red oxide formulation gives great protection against metal corrosion and degradation.

GOOD TO KNOW
Start at the top of the fencing and work your way down. That way you take care of any drips or runs.

STEP 4:steel palisade fence

Finish your fence off with 2 coats of Plascon Waterbased Enamel for a durable long-lasting and chalk-resistant finish.
Plascon Waterbased Enamel is available in a wide range of tinted colours. Regular maintenance will ensure the lifespan of your palisade fencing and it's important to repair paint chips as quickly as possible to prevent the formation of rust. Keep the base of your palisade fencing clear of obstacles that may prevent the normal flow of water. Puddles around the base of the fence will eventually cause paint to peel and rust to set in.

Where rust stops occur - take the necessary steps as soon as possible

Layered Security

palisade with electric fenceOur Perimeter fence or wall and a motorised gate is our first line of defence in ensuring our home is protected. There are other security measures we can also employ to make sure our home, family and property are protected.

You should also ensure that the area surrounding your gate as well was the garage is clear of any foliage, to avoid supplying a would-be intruder with a nice safe place to hide.

Palisade and electric fencing are very effective and off-putting to anyone wanting to get into your property undetected, as palisade offers no hiding places if the area is kept clean and free of any shrubs where an intruder can hide.

Don’t Attract Criminals

Wall ThiefResearch has shown that building high walls is actually not good security.

You ask why? The answer is simple.

If you are living behind high walls for privacy and security, your ability to see what is going on outside your property is impossible, and it works both ways. You can’t see out, and security companies or police cannot see in.

If an intruder gets access to your property they are then shielded from being seen by anyone on the outside of your property, and can then happily go about their criminal activities without anyone being alerted to their presence.

Having palisade fencing on a lower wall gives people on the outside the opportunity to see the criminal and alert the security or police. It could save your life and the lives of your family.

Crime is escalating, and good security fencing is your first line of defence. Stop making your property attractive to would be intruders.
