How much will it cost?
How long is a piece of string? The price of a fully installed fence is very much determined by the following: type of product and height, site conditions, length of the fence line, technical difficulty, and where the fence will be installed. We prefer to take a detailed brief by phone, and follow this up with a site visit in order to give you a more accurate quote.
How long will my fence last?
The durability of an installed fence will depend both on the material and whether you perform any preventative maintenance after it’s installed. Using treated wood, for example, can increase the lifespan of wooden fences, although some maintenance is still required to prevent damage from animals, insects and the weather. Mesh and palisade fencing factories offer individual factory warranties dependent on product and area of installation; these can be anything from 5 to 10 years.
Does Eco Fence Cape only work in Cape Town?
We are able to work outside of Cape Town, on financially viable projects. We would usually find affordable accommodation for the team, which is then built into the quote. This allows for more hours spent installing, and less on travelling.
What is the lead time on installation?
All stock is subject to availability; however, the following guidelines can be used: palisade, wooden fences and gates usually take approximately 2 weeks from when the deposit clears at the factory, and mesh panels are usually available within 3 to 4 days. Installation lead times vary, dependent on the time of year.
Does Eco Fence Cape need to do a site visit?
It is not always necessary to do a site visit. We prefer to take a detailed brief, have a look at the property on google maps, and provide you with a quote estimate. If this is within your reach we will then schedule a site visit.
Should I send Eco Fence Cape a sketch or site plan?
Yes, this is always useful. A basic layout indicating meterage of the various sides, position of gate and noting any obstacles. It does not have to be to scale, or a work of art!
Do I need plans?
The rules do vary in each local council, and so you will need to familiarise yourself with the laws in your specific area. The responsibility is on the owner on the fence to obtain the necessary approvals; we do not submit or draw plans if they are required.
Does Eco Fence Cape sell panels for self installation?
Yes, we can provide fencing products for self-installation for jobs that are the equivalent of 10 panels or more.
Do we have a showroom?
No we do not have a showroom; however we have samples of most fencing materials, and those that we don’t can be viewed by means of a selection of photographs on our website Gallery.
What are our working hours?
Our hours vary for installation of fencing projects, as this is dependent on variables such as weather, the site location, and material availability. We generally start between 07:30 and 09:00, and finish no later than 18:00 each day.
Do we work over weekends?
We occasionally work on Saturdays in peak season, and only and when absolutely necessary. We are closed on Sundays.
What deposit will be required?
We require a 70 percent deposit on most projects. On larger projects this will be broken down further as the fence is installed. We work on a strict payment on completion policy, and not terms.
Do we offer finance?
No, we do not offer finance nor do we offer payment terms. We do however offer payment via SnapScan which will allow you to pay for your installation via credit card.
Can people cut through panels or fencing?
There is no guarantee that the fence will not be compromised, given the right tools, time and intent. It is advisable that you ‘layer’ your security with electric fence, beams, the best security doors and armed response if your budget allows.
Are mesh panels available in any colour?
No, they are only available in anthracite or green at this present time.
Does Bentley the hole digger accompany the team?
Only upon special request … and if there is the promise of some treats on offer (this second proviso is from him, not the owner of the company!)

Why you need physical security barriers in the Cape?
With security being top of mind within the South African psyche, physical security measures that are designed to deny unauthorised access, as well as protect your property and loved ones from damage or harm, are especially important.
Define the perimeter of your property, provide a level of effort for intruders and create planned delay by installing fences, walls, electric fencing, spikes and razor wire, acting as the outermost layer of your security system.
We at Eco Fence Cape believe that an effective first line of defence is the first step in creating a secure environment. This is in conjunction with other systems such as natural defence, security lighting, alarms, sensors, surveillance and active involvement in Neighbourhood Watch activities.
