Our standard horse fence bracket for interim posts. Our standard horse fence bracket features a low profile design which is both inconspicuous and aesthetically pleasing. The clear polymer is suitable for all types and colors of fence posts. Our standard brackets are made from clear UV stabilised super tough polycarbonate and provide excellent durability.
Our horse fence brackets are designed to provide for lateral movement of the rail in the event of impact with the fence. This provides for a greater cushioning effect and promoting horse fence safety. Our horse fence brackets feature smooth edges to eliminate abrasion risk to your horses. The low profile design is a key component to our products horse fence safety. With our system there are no large fittings for your horses to injure themselves on.
Each bracket can be easily fixed with two hex head screws, these are available in our store for your convenience, see Interim Bracket Screws. These screws provide for sufficient surface area which provides the strength required when horses impact the fence. Our screws are type 17 for timber, 50mm long with a 5/8 hex head. Please do not use screws with countersunk heads as these can damage the brackets on installation. The brackets are tough and durable however incorrect installation of the product can lead to failure when impact occurs to the fence.
Warning: Polycarbonate brackets should not be exposed to any petrochemicals. In particular they should not be used on posts painted with sump oil.
Warning: Polycarbonate brackets should not be exposed to Creosote. Creosote contains aromatics which will damage Polycarbonate.
If using creosote or sump oil we recommend you use one of our metal brackets.
Warning: Do not over tighten screws when installing the brackets. Be careful to adjust the clutch on your driver to prevent this.
