A Guide to Rural Fencing and Gates

If you’re in the Adelaide area or elsewhere in South Australia and you’re after rural fencing and rural gates, Normetals has you covered. We stock a range of top-quality metal products for working farms to help you effectively divide up your property, and protect and control the movement of your livestock, while still allowing easy access for vehicles and workers where it’s required.

What Type of Fencing and Gates do I Need?

There are two simple questions to ask yourself here: 1. What variety of livestock or sort of crop will be contained within each fenced area? AND 2. Which farm vehicles will have to pass through those areas in the course of day-to-day operations? Answering these questions should tell you the type and size of fence panel to use, as well as the correct corresponding gate.

A further possible query may be whether to adopt single- or double-gate arrangements. However, where the required access demands a certain width of opening, the answer to this one will likely be double.

The Normetals Range

We can supply you with single-strand fencing, barbed-wire fencing, regular farm fencing or galvanised-panel fencing in the necessary quantities. We also stock a selection of different sturdy rural gates that vary from 8-16 feet in width.

As far as livestock goes, we carry panels and gates constructed to suit:

  • Cattle
  • Sheep, AND
  • Alpacas and llamas.

Then there are our specific livestock-related metal products such as cattle crushes, sheep-loading ramps and sheep three-way gates. If you don’t see a particular specialty item along these lines on our website, please ask us (see contact details below) as it may still be available.

For those wanting general fencing supplies, Normetals can supply you with large quantities of droppers, galvanised mesh rolls (ideal for farm rodent protection) and galvanised weld mesh sheets, all in various sizes.

Finally, if you want something more urban for the space directly around your homestead or other central farm buildings, don’t forget that we also carry a range of residential-style fencing and gates. The same goes for smaller metal sheds – we have those, too.

Why Metal Fencing and Gates are Superior

Whether you’re fencing a property for the first time or replacing old wooden barriers that are either worn out or no longer fit for purpose, you can’t beat the uniform look of modern all-metal fences and gates. Strong and durable, this combination stands up to repeated use, harsh weather and repeated contact with your livestock, without demanding too much maintenance on your part.
