DIY Colorbond Gates Installation Guide

Colorbond Gates: security, durability, aesthetics

Colorbond stands as the preferred steel construction material in Australia for a multitude of compelling reasons. It is cost-effective, durable, and requires minimal maintenance all while delivering a stylish visual appeal. While Colorbond is commonly employed in constructing fences, it can also be employed for gates, ensuring seamless continuity with your Colorbond fencing or providing a secure, non-transparent entrance to your property.


Colorbond gates present numerous benefits. They are non-transparent, offering a high level of security, and exhibit resilience against the challenging weather conditions of Western Australia, as well as any potential intrusion attempts. Furthermore, these gates are customisable, allowing you to tailor their design to harmonise with your property’s aesthetics.

DIY Colorbond Gates

While Colorbond Gates can be installed by a professional into your space, we know there’s a singular satisfaction that comes with creating something yourself. That’s why our Colorbond Gates are also designed and available as a kit to assemble on your own. Their lightweight materials allow for effortless manipulation and assembly, making it a perfect DIY project for a weekend. 


DIY Colorbond Gates are also the perfect final touch to add to your Colorbond Fence, whether your fence has been built by a professional or whether you’ve decided to DIY it too.  


Customisable, our Colourbond Gates come in an extensive range of colours so they fit with your space’s atmosphere and/or existing fence. 


We know the excitement of witnessing a project come to life and the joy of completing it. We know there’s no greater pride than being able to boast that you’ve constructed a beautiful gate entirely on your own. More so, we know DIY projects can be a cost-effective way to navigate current price inflation.
