A Local Fencing paling fence is a fence consisting of pickets or pales nailed to horizontal stringers between upright posts. A treated pine paling fence is a common choice in residential design, paling fences provide warmth, design, and security to your home. Stainable and paintable, treated pine paling fences by Local Fencing are versatile and are easily catered to your needs, and unique style.

The paling fence Sydney 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 sit flush or butt up against each other. Some owners prefer a slight gap between palings. This will usually occur when the paling shrink after initial install of the paling fence. The top corners of the palings are chipped or chiselled to provide an attractive detail to the top of the fence paling.
  • Over-lapped or just lapped – as the name suggests are when the palings overlap to provide maximum privacy and have no gaps.
  • Lapped & Capped style fencing is  where the palings overlap ensuring no gaps between each fence paling and the top of the fence is fitted with a timber cap or top cap providing a stylish finish to the fence, which also increases strength and longevity for decades to come.

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