FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does Heras provide an installation service?
Heras does not provide an installation service but we can put you in contact with local fencing contractors in your area. Ask a member of sales for details.
Can you send me samples of fencing?
Yes. To order samples simply contact us and tell us the samples you would like to receive and we will deliver them within 7 working days.
What is the lead time on your products?
Lead times vary from product to product and depend on the volume of your order and if the product is in stock or not. At the time of ordering, we can give you a clear indication of lead times and always aim to provide a fast and efficient service to all our customers.
What finish should I choose for my fencing?
Most steel fencing and gate systems can be supplied either in a galvanised finish, or galvanised and polyester powder coated. If you choose polyester powder coating then not only will the product life expectancy be increased but you will also have a range of colours to choose from. Check out our RAL colour chart by clicking here.
Do I need to obtain planning permission for my fence?
We would always advise that you check with your local planning officer as regulations do vary from authority to authority. As a general guide,however, it is unusual for planning permission to be needed for fences that are less than 1.8mtr high. In some areas (e.g. conservation areas) product type may also be an issue as planning officers often do not wish to see fence types that are out of keeping with the surrounding environment.
