A summary diagram showing how our horse fence rail is attached to both interim and straining posts.
Shown here is a standard metal fence brace, set 500mm into the soil against a submerged post.
It is a good idea to roll out your rail the day before your installation. Heat from the sun will soften the material and make for easier handling. It will also remove the curl that results from the product being stored in coils.
When fixing bracing to your straining posts please ensure you leave room for rail to be attached at the centre of the post. Shown here this metal brace is to the inside of the post allowing access. Also make sure you leave access for drilling holes for straining devices, ideally drill these whole before attaching the brace to make your work easier.
Preparing the rail and attaching to the end post is quick and easy with our wire end vices and wire stripper pliers.
Off-cuts can be quickly re- rolled and used later.
100 metre roll of our rail are quickly unrolled and installed.
Using a string line to get the posts straight provides to a neat and attractive job.
