Security Fencing Solutions

The Promax™ Security Fencing System has been developed to enhance the industry accepted 358 mesh market with new innovative perimeter posts, mesh, toppings and gates.

Profence is a leading Australian manufacturer of welded wire closed spaced mesh with Promax™ 358 mesh (71 x 9mm aperture) as it’s signature product.

Promax™ close spaced steel mesh provides maximum security fencing by being extremely difficult to climb or penetrate using normal hand tools and yet has a minimal visual impact on the surrounds and an important clear line of horizontal sight.

Promax™ Security fencing utilizes the unique design registered Promax™ ‘T’ Post, a high strength medium weight post designed to combine better aesthetics with faster installation and less potential maintenance.

All Promax™ mesh fence systems can be specified using either post and rail systems or successfully utilized as rail-less structures depending on the end use security level requirements.

Promax™ ‘T’ Post 358 Mesh System has been engineered and certified for high security fences up to 4.8M. For fences over 4.8M or with wind restrictive topping other super T posts configurations are available.

Protective Fencing are a leading supplier of high security fencing products to airports, rail-yards, mining, power stations, schools, commercial and industrial properties.


Protective manufacture and supply palisade materials based on traditional specifications using pencil point TFB posts and 150UB 14.0 posts and standard 50x50x6 rails.

All W pales are of a BS1722-12 approved design and comply with all the strength requirements specified in Annex A & C. Rail positions have been standardised and positioned for greatest security for 2 and 3 rail fences.

Other rail positions can supplied to match existing installations.

Standard Promax™ pale centres have been determined by the current Railcorp specification of max 80mm between pales. Rails with pale centres to suit the wider BS1722-12 specified centres of 155mm are also available upon request.

Protective offer an advisory, material scheduling and estimating service on a project by project basis.

A powder coating service is available from Protective’s in house powdercoating plant.

Protective is an approved applicator of Interpon D1000 powder over porous substrates such as hot dip galvanised steel and can also offer higher specification finishes for specific requirements.

Razor wire is a highly developed form of the traditional barbed wire.

The design of the razor wire barbs and the enhanced cutting resistance of the steel tape is a much more effective deterrent than barbed wire in preventing intruders climbing over or cutting through the wire.

The success of razor wire lies in the longer length of its spear-like barbs, difficulty of gaining a handhold, and the strength of the steel tape. Razor wire works to impede entry by either catching clothing or ripping through flesh.

Some of its effectiveness is also due to its intimidating appearance and well-earned fierce reputation creating a certain amount of fear in potential intruders.

Profence can supply razor wire in two basic forms: concertina wire and flat loop razor tape. Razor wire comes in a range of barb lengths, wire diameters, and loop sizes.

We supply galvanised short barb razor tape with a loop size of 550mm. Flat loop razor tape is ideal for medium security applications including:
