Factors to consider when choosing steel and fence suppliers in Australia
Steel is one of the most used materials for fencing in both residential and commercial projects in Australia. Therefore, choosing a reliable supplier is vital to the smooth operation of your fencing project.
COLORBOND steel for your project
Choosing the right steel & fence supply partner that offers all these options is a daunting task. It is much easier to decide on a supplier based on the products they offer, and COLORBOND steel & fence supplies are some of the most reliable products in the market.
COLORBOND steel meets the considerations of quality, product range, customisation, sustainability, and certifications quite easily. The key features of COLORBOND steel that address these considerations are:
COLORBOND products are made for Australian conditions, rigorously tested, and monitored for long-term performance. A well-maintained COLORBOND steel fence can last up to 20 years.

COLORBOND steel offers 22 core colours, with 6 of them in premium matte finishes and a variety of panel sizes that you can use to address your needs for customisation as needed.
10 factors to consider when choosing a steel & fence supply partner
The most important considerations you should be making when choosing a steel fence supplier are as follows:
Quality of materials
The quality of the materials you are sourcing affects the entirety of the project. While most suppliers claim to have the highest quality materials that meet Australian standards, it’s always a good idea to verify their claims.
Range of products
The range of products a supplier will have at their disposal is always a good metric of the supplier’s capability and experience. A wide range of products also allows you to pick and choose exactly what you need for your project.
The supplier’s reputation in the industry is an immediately apparent metric of trust and capability. Ask around, read customer reviews, and check testimonials to gain information about any potential suppliers you have in mind.
Experience and expertise
The supplier’s experience in the industry and expertise in similar projects will ensure you have an easier time managing the project. Keep these considerations in mind and bring them up when you’re communicating with your supplier.
The availability of competitive pricing options, offers, and promotions can all contribute to a better arrangement for you. Suppliers facilitating online ordering and delivery may have better prices than your traditional supplier.
Delivery and logistics
Factors associated with delivery, such as cost, quality, and timeliness are often a sizable concern when sourcing steel. Ensure your supplier offers products that are delivered with care, in a cost-effective and timely manner.
A supplier who offers great customer and after-sales service is highly valuable. Ensure your supplier is responsive to your queries, provides clear communication, and offers support throughout the purchasing process and after.
More customisation options mean more variety of products for you to choose from. If you are taking on a project that needs a pervasive amount of customisation, choose a supplier that can deliver on these customisation needs.
As individual, commercial, and regulatory concerns for sustainability are at an all-time high, make sure your supplier follows sustainable policies for manufacturing, processing, and delivery and relevant industry standards.
Certifications and compliance
The supplier’s adherence to industry standards will result in an overall more reliable and trustworthy steel & fence supply partner. Check for relevant certifications such as ISO standards and SSA certifications in your supplier.
