Product reliability is crucial when installing any gate or fence post solution. The primary purpose of a fence is to provide security and privacy, so when approaching a tradesperson to install a fencing system on their property, homeowners expect the solution to last.

Therefore, it is important to use only the highest quality products to ensure the durability and longevity of installations. Not only will this keep customers happy but also reduce the risk of unwanted call backs, which can be incredibly detrimental to the number of installations a tradesperson can complete in a given period of time. Likewise, selecting an easy to install solution will ensure that an installation is carried out quickly and efficiently, minimising disruption to the customer’s property and allowing the tradesperson to carry out an increased number of jobs.
