Curved top steel fence design with hollow bar rails

Bow Top Fencing

Perfect for a wide variety of applications, Bow Top fencing, also known as hairpin fencing or hoop top fencing, provides a versatile and durable demarcation solution.

Our Bow top fencing has a pale-through-rail construction with no visible joins and is immensely strong. Its tubular construction means it's lighter than traditional solid steel and requires fewer support posts, making installation faster and less costly. We manufacture and supply quality Bow Top fencing and gates which conform to UK Building Regulations.

Bow Top correspond(s) to the generic component/material "steel" in the BRE Global Guide online generic specification(s) "Galvanised steel railings" which achieve(s) a summary rating of B within commercial, domestic, residential, health, industrial, education.
