We offer the market a rigid steel post design that is structurally sound, long lasting, easily installed and reusable.

If you need to support or add too an existing draw wire or netting fence, this can be done with our customized “slot option” specific to your requirements.

The “Daveles post” design will complement both new and existing wire/netting fencing.

No need to unnecessarily cut or thread either type of fence application on installation.

Saving time and money for the contractor or property owner!

Pay It Forward

The story about Sharyn and Jamie Jones first aired on Campbell Live in September 2014. Sharyn was the victim of a scam that cost her thousands of dollars that left her with substantial debt and nothing to show.

After the show there were a number of calls from people who wanted to volunteer to help out anyway they could.

Armed with a number of volunteers we could see this was a great opportunity to assist someone in need.

We have all been through enough with the recent earthquakes and subsequent stresses afterwards.

  • Smartweld has been working with us for more than a year now, predominately on machine guarding, but also any fabrication or engineering needs we have had. Les works very well in understanding our business needs and his team turn up when they say they will, are always efficient, accommodating, and professional. We have had positive comments from Department of Labour Health & Safety representatives on the design and quality of the guarding we have had installed. Smartweld will continue to be our sole supplier of all of our future guarding and fabrication needs.

  • “I have been a client of Les Mitchell of Smartweld Ltd since 2008. My company uses a variety of machinery types to manufacture products for pest control. Over this time we have required machinery maintenance, machinery installation and machinery design and we have had this work undertaken by Les at Smartweld. A recent project required the installation of transitions to move product through several manufacturing stages through to the completion of the final product. We asked Les to undertake this this work which required a considerable design and manufacturing input. Les undertook this work quickly and efficiently and to a very high standard. Our machinery consultant, who inspected the work, was very impressed and asked us to convey to Les that it was one of the best installations of this type that he had seen. I have no hesitation in recommending Les and his team for any design, manufacturing and installation work that you require and guarantee that you will be satisfied with the service and quality of his workmanship.”

Smartweld manufacture garage door springs on site in Christchurch and supply throughout NZ.

We have developed a strict QA system for each step of our manufacturing process to ensure our springs will balance the customer’s doors correctly and consistently. Our process incorporates batch testing, life cycling and documentation for both torsion and extension springs.

Kanban Service

We have this option for customers that require large volumes of springs on a regular basis. This service reduces stock holding for the customer and still gives them the flexibility to have good stock on hand without the worry of a long lead time when ordering.
