As featured on BBC DIY SOS Big Build.


A woven steel fence is an unknown concept to most, however, around our base on the Norfolk coast we have carried out hundreds of installations, and now with our self build kits there are many more nationwide, and as far afield as the USA!

We deveolped the concept around 8 years ago for a client looking to replace a rotting willow fence around his oil tank, with a longer lasting and non-combustible screen. At the time we didn't realise that this little woven screen screen on view from the road would be the start of something bigger.

As we began installing more woven steel fences we received enquiries from outside our installation area, this led us to develop a self build steel weave fencing system which could be installed using basic tools by anyone able to knock posts into the ground. Since then we have also introduced woven steel panels and Aluminium woven fencing.

In essence there are two self fit fencing options, pre-made panels and self build kits, both of these are explained below. Installation is a straight forward process with both options, however, if you dont fancy it yourself, please see our recommended installers page, we now have much of the UK covered.


We have two self fit options with delivery throughout the UK or we can install your fence if you live in the local area.

Firstly, the ready made woven steel panels; these are a familiar post and panel system erected in the same way as a traditional fence. The panels are available in Corten or galvanised steel and both are secured with specially made steel posts.

Secondly, the self build steel fence option, this provides you with all the steel fixings and instructions to allow you to build your own woven steel fence from scratch, in much the same way as we do but without the need to weld. In essence posts are knocked into the ground at 60cm intervals and the steel woven around them, like the panels these will also weather beautifully to a golden brown. There is a lot of flexibility to create different shapes, angles, curves and heights with this system.

Thirdly, a new introduction, woven aluminium fencing for a highly contempory fence. This is supplied as a self build kit following the same installation process as the steel self build kit.

A self build kit requires a bit more time on installing than the panels as it’s not a familiar process (we estimate around 25%). However it is a surprisingly simple and forgiving fencing system with significant savings and flexibility and it will produce a continous fence

We have a number of recommend installers covering most of the UK if you didn’t fancy installing your own fence, please get in touch for more information.

We supply and install gates just the same woven steel style as your fence.

These gates blend almost seamlessly with your woven steel fence weather it be panels, the kit or even galvanised. For self installation gates are prefabricated with hinges and latch attached, you just need to cement the gate posts in, attach the gate and latch catcher to the posts with the fixings supplied.
It could not be easier.

See our new gate page for more information on our woven steel gates.



We were inspired by the first willow fence we replaced and there is appeal in the irony of an industrial material taking on such a fluid organic appearance. Exposed to the elements, your fence will soon weather to produce the trademark brown tones which bring a maturity to the landscape and provide an ideal backdrop to any scheme.


Being made completely of steel ensures a lifespan well in excess of 25 years and we stand by that with our 25 year guarantee.

Good value

Surprisingly a woven steel fence is around the same price as woven Willow. While the steel cost makes it a more expensive alternative to a standard timber fence, over the course of its lifetime a timber fence would need replacing a number of times.

Zero maintenance

Just let your fence weather naturally. We advise against any coating which adds a maintenance element. Ours is one of the only fences which gets better with age.

Wind resistance

The weave allows some wind to filter through the fence while still providing privacy. Allowing air to pass through reduces the turbulence created by a solid barrier resulting in more effective protection.

Support for climbers

An incidental advantage of a woven steel fence. Climbers are able to work their way through the weave without the addition of unsightly wires or trellis and being made of steel this will not cause any damage to the fence.


As steel is strong, flexible and resistant to rotting, there is an almost endless list of applications for woven steel fencing from curved boundary fences to formal raised beds and free standing screens.
