Fireproof Fence Materials From Triple Star

If bushfires occur near your property, you'll want to take extra care when choosing fence materials. Studies have shown that solid steel and hardwood fencing provide better fire protection than treated pine or open slatted fences by providing a barrier to both fire and heat.

This is important because while the initial fire may skip by the house or fence, debris or embers can float over the fence or through the slats after the fire pushes through and light up landscaping or building materials. Solid walls of fencing are much more effective at preventing these sparks from coming into contact with flammable debris on the property. Of course, this is only true of hardwood fencing that has been cleared of flammable debris. Combustible materials that abut the fence can actually provide fuel for the fire and lead to the fence itself catching fire.

Steel fencing doesn't pose this same risk and offers another advantage: it is less likely to suffer complete structural failure in a fire than other materials. It may buckle or separate at the joints or suffer scorching under really hot and prolonged conditions, but, in general, it stays intact, which helps limit house-to-house fire spread.
