Barkers’ palisade is a hugely popular, versatile and reliable fencing system. It addresses a wide range of perimeter security needs, from general purpose demarcation to the highest security, rigorously tested fencing. Our palisade is available in various specifications and is particularly well-suited to the road and rail, utilities, education, retail, industrial, airports and ports and data centre sectors.

Its imposing appearance makes for an effective visual deterrent, while spiked tops, minimal foot holes and cutting-resistant solid steel vertical pales ensure excellent protection against unauthorised access, vandalism and attack. Additional security options such as triple spiked tops, razor wire coils, barbed wire and rotating spikes can further reinforce your boundary.

Palisade is the ideal solution for any business, school or public space in need of a strong, durable perimeter. Powder coating in an array of colours means that this product can be matched to corporate and brand identities or customised to assimilate with surrounding environments.

Barkers hot dip galvanize our palisade products to protect the steel from the elements, rust and other deterioration, guaranteeing an exceptionally long lifespan.

Unlike several alternatives, Barkers palisade fencing systems cope with sloping ground up to 25 degree angles without cutting down bays or making modifications. It is also flexible to most budgets and manufactured to BS 1722, 12 and beyond.

Swing gates and cantilever gates manufactured to British Standard are available to match.
