Installation Advice

Fence Panels

Fence Panel - Installation Advice

We recommend using either pressure treated timber posts or slotted concrete posts with our fence panels. 

The size of the post is always your choice but we recommend the following: 

If you are digging the post into the ground then allow at least 600mm or 2' extra to go into the ground. 

If using timber posts, we always suggest that you use a 100mm x 100mm post for our panels. 75mm x 75mm posts are suitable for most applications, but don't forget how windy it can get. 

If you are using our metal post supports just fit the post support, install the post and either using our panel clips (available in our fence fixings section) or a nailed on batten - attach the panel 

We can also offer timber posts that have been machined with a slot on either side - if you choose these H posts just slot the panels in between the posts.

 

All our panels are made to fit snugly into our slotted concrete posts. Allow an extra 600mm again to go into the ground and simply slot the panel in the gap. 

 

 

Fence Panels - Picket Panels

 

Picket Fence Panel - Installation Advice

We recommend using 75x75mm posts with these sturdy panels. 

Each panel is supplied with one extra picket pale to cover the join between the panels. 

Make sure you allow an extra 600mm length for the posts to go into the ground, or use one of our metal post supports 

The posts will last longer if you install a post cap onto of each post. 

 

 

Post Fix Cement 

Usage Guide 

Dig the hole to the required size 

Half fill the hole with water and place the post in the hole 

Add the post mix cement uniformly around the post until it is above the level of the water. Add additional water if dry powder is showing 

Adjust the position of the post and support it for approx 10 mins until the set occurs. 

 

 

 

Feather edge board - close board fencing 

Each board should overlap its neighbour by at least 25mm or 1 inch. This will help ensure there are no gaps when the timber shrinks and expands with the British weather 

When you nail the boards in place, nail as close to the thicker edge as possible WITHOUT hitting the board underneath. This will allow the board to expand and shrink without splitting the boards 

Make sure you use galvanised round wire nails - 50mm is the perfect size. If you do not use galvanised nails, you will find dirty rust streaks running down your new fence the first time it rains - and the nails will eventually rust away and the boards will come loose 

If you overlap the boards by 25mm you will ensure that each board will create 100mm or 4 inches of fence.

You will need 10 boards per metre of fence or 3 boards per foot of fence

Picket Pales 

Always use galvanised nails when attaching your picket pales to a sturdy rail.

We use a 22x100x1800mm rail when making panels

A 75x75mm or 3x3inch post should be big enough for these picket pales.

Use two 40mm nails per pale per rail. Nail in a diagonal line approx 15mm from the edge of the pale. This will keep the pale in place and prevent it wobbling.
