Post & Rail fencing is most commonly seen as a post and three rail arrangement.  However, often the number of rails may be increased or decreased dependant on whether it is keeping something in or out, or is simply marking a boundary.
To install Post & Rail you must set a post every 1.8 metres.  To calculate the number of posts required, divide the total length in metres of the boundary by 1.8 (post centres) and add 1 post at the end.  To calculate the number of rails required, divide the total meterage required by 3.6 (rail length) and multiply the number by 3 (for three rail fencing).

Field Gates

To complement your fencing, we can supply and install a range of field gates in metal or wood.  Pedestrian and vehicle access gates are both available.

Finish & Fittings

Rails should be staggered over the posts so that all the joints are not in the same place, this makes for a stronger fence. 
Posts are normally dug into the ground 600mm and then back filled with soil.  In the Summer it may be necessary to concrete in the posts as backfilling effectively can be impossible in dried out soil.
All our Post & Rail fencing is made from pressure treated softwood.  All nails, staples, straps and stock fencing have a galvanised finish.
