Picture a scenario where all you want is a great looking fence instead of a rotting wooden one without the fence post brackets interfering with your neighbour. Or maybe you’ve just moved into your new home in a housing estate and learn that you own only one boundary fence, the other one belongs to your neighbour…


We have some good news for you! With the SmartFence post brackets, Surface Facing Bracket, you don’t have to consider your neighbour anymore or ask for their permission when installing a SmartFence. This is because our innovative fence post brackets are exclusively designed to work with SmartFence panels, being easy and quick to install, and made from high-quality, strong and resistant steel.

What Problems Do SmartFence Post Brackets Solve?

Reaching an agreement with your neighbours about a fence can be stressful, which is why so many people prefer keeping their old wooden fence even though they are not happy with it. Thinking of how inconvenient and uncomfortable situations like this can be, we have designed our innovative fence post brackets that allow you to fence both sides of your garden without interfering with your closest neighbours.


SmartFence post brackets give you complete independence when choosing your fence as they can be used to mount the SmartFence panels on one side without removing the old wooden panels on your neighbours side. Besides, they can also be used to clad a wall or unsightly garden shed. And the best part is that our fence post brackets are simple and easy to install when compared to traditional fence brackets. So, there is no excuse for having a rotting wooden fence anymore!

What Colours are the Brackets Available In?

Whether you are searching for a brighter or darker look, SmartFence post brackets are available in a variety of colours that will certainly suit your taste. Its PVC exterior finish coat has UV protection, which means that the colour will remain for decades with the same pristine look.
As our fence post brackets are made for SmartFence panels, the colours available match the ones available for the panels:

  • Merlin Grey
  • Goosewing Grey
  • Olive Green
  • Anthracite

Why are Fence Post Brackets Important?

There are many aspects that make fence post brackets an important part of your fence project. The first and most important one is to keep the structural integrity of your fence, reinforcing it to ensure stability in all weather conditions.


Another important aspect is that fence post brackets keep the panels connected securely, which also ensures the fence lasts. Finally, from an aesthetic standpoint, fence post brackets have a clean and tapered finish, giving your fence a more stylish look.


So, no matter how windy or rainy the weather is, you won’t have to worry about your fence’s structure falling apart, having to replace it, or looking unfinished.
