A local Australian company designing, manufacturing and
supplying pedestrian fencing & civil use products in Australia since 1989
Our business began from humble beginnings
ENCAT was founded in 1989 as a local Australian engineering firm focused on anticipating and meeting the production requirements of BlueScope BHP and its suppliers. However, thanks to the design-oriented enthusiasm of its founder John Ford and the creative and technical expertise of the Encat staff, ENCAT began to manufacture and distribute a wide range of civil use metal products.
ENCAT is an Australian designer that has crafted an elegant range of products that are suitable for use in public spaces like schools, national parks, roads, shopping centres and even sports grounds.
The high quality, durable product solutions have stood the test of time, with many still in use more than ten years later. The ENCAT engineering team are always evolving the form, design and manufacturing of products based on client or public feedback.
ENCAT is continually innovating and can do so with a range of in-house manufacturing equipment where we can test and try different ideas using metal. We constantly try to create even more effective, attractive and stronger products that are built to last. We pride ourselves on meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations in terms of price, delivery time, quality, and durability.
The team has always been focussed on delivering engineering excellence with local Australian manufacturing facilities in NSW & only using the best Australian suppliers. A local manufacturing business that can deliver products Australia wide or overseas.
Expanding our range and expertise making civil use products
Over the years ENCAT has build an enviable reputation for not cutting corners, using high quality local Australian steel and delivering a range of products that meet all required Australian standards.
ENCAT can boast a long list of clients including government departments, national parks, local councils, schools, universities and even shopping centre groups who have all used ENCAT products.
One of the key focus areas for ENCAT is the manufacturing and supply of RMS Pedestrian Fencing in Australia. ENCAT can supply pedestrian fencing directly to local councils, government contractors, civil works companies or other entities anywhere in Australia.
ENCAT is an Australian manufacturer of pedestrian fencing that produces everything locally in our factory located in NSW. Everything produced is 100% compliant with the current RMS drawings, specifications and Australian Standards.
What does putting governance before profit mean to us?
Getting a ‘certificate of compliance’ these days may not mean exactly what it says. Our experience working in the field of pedestrian fencing has given us first hand knowledge with fencing, or other items, that have not been designed or manufactured correctly with the right techniques or materials.
For example, when it comes to pedestrian fencing it should deform & absorb the energy from an impact to keep people safe. Pieces shouldn’t break off, detach or become projectiles if hit by a vehicle. We have seen this occur when the fencing has not been made to the stringent specifications required or with high quality materials. Too many companies these days outsource their labour, material sourcing or do not have tought quality control mechanisms to prevent poor quality products being supplied and used.
The team at ENCAT refuse to operate in this manner and hence we use Australian sourced metal and manufacture everything ourselves to produce the highest quality products possible – governance before profits.
Owned, designed and manufactured locally
All the products we produce are manufactured in our facility located in Wollongong then supplied anywhere in Australia.
