Infill Ideas for Sandstone Concrete Pillar Fences

  • Your house and garden are the main attractions – pillars with a plinth wall act as framing elements.
  • The infill or palisade is the part of the fence between the pillars and posts.
  • Choose your infill at the beginning of the project.
  • We have seen many combinations of infill materials used to make individual and stylish fences.

Tubular Steel

  • Incorporated into most fences.
  • Light-weight and flexible.
  • Endless possibilities.
  • Long life when powder coated.


  • Secure.
  • Suits Modern or Heritage Traditional Fencing.
  • Adaptable Height.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Can be any powder-coat colour.


  • Lighter than tubular steel.
  • Best option if living by the coast.
  • Not as flexible as tubular steel.
  • Many choices of pattern from simple spears to complex lace.
  • Heritage advisors with many Councils prefer the look of the aluminum fencing with the flat horizontal bar as shown here, and a heavy fancy spear giving an acceptable traditional look with modern materials.

Cast Aluminum

  • Heritage areas.
  • Period homes.
  • Fixed size panels.
  • Many choices of pattern from simple spears to complex lace.
  • As the panel sizes may be fixed you need to choose pillars in conjunction with the panels.

Aluminum Slats

  • Modern design.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Colour and size are nearly unlimited.
  • The gap between slats can be altered to allow for more or less privacy.
