2.1 – 2.4 High Colorbond Fencing
This is just taller sheeting in the panels so you can get for extra security down laneways, or if neighbours have raised patios and can see into your yard. When you install at heights of 2.4m high, a reinforcement post needs to be added between the panels because as steel gets longer, there is too much flex in the post since Colorbond is generally quite a thin-gauged steel.
When you increase the height of your Colorbond fence, you will need to make sure longer posts are used, and sometimes more concrete will be needed when it comes to heights as long as you and your neighbours agree there is no council approval needed, however if there are issues between agreeing on heights then you will need to go with the standard council recommended 1.8 meters high from the property on the highest side, usually this would be sufficient as anybody around 6 foot or 180cm tall generally can’t see over a standard height fence.
Taller than 1.8 high Colorbond fences are not cyclone rated however how ever with the support of steel reinforcement posts when exceeding 2.4m high and years of experience at installing these higher Colorbond fences, they do hold up in storms.
