Fence Panels

Fence Panels are a relatively easy way of making a fence. Fencing Panels come in a variety of styles and heights to suit all needs or budgets.

We can make bespoke panels too in our onsite workshop.

There are three main options to support your panels.

1/ Treated square wooden posts.
The best method of attaching the panels to the posts is to screw sideways through the panel end battens into the post on both the front and the back of the panel. 75mm or 100mm external quality wood screws with a max’ diameter of 5mm (No8) are ideal, as larger diameters need predrilling.
“U” panel clips can be used if preferred, but they are not as secure and they leave a gap between the post and the panel.

Wooden post sizes used for fence panels are:
a/ 100mm x 100mm (4″ x 4″)  Suitable for all panels.
b/ 100mm x 75mm  (4″ x 3″)   The panels are fixed to the 100mm sides.
This gives the strength of a 100mm depth combined with a smaller  75mm visual impact. Suitable for all panels.
c/  75mm x 75mm  (3″ x 3″)  This is the smallest size wooden post suitable for supporting panels.
For panel heights above 1.2m (4′) we would recommend upgrading to the stronger 100mm x 75mm post.

2/Concrete slotted posts.
A popular choice for supporting panels as they are generally long-lasting.  New panels can be slotted in from the top if required. To prevent the panels blowing out, it is important that the posts are fitted up to the panels with a minimum clearance.
To increase security by stopping the panels being lifted out, the panels can be joined together with panel security brackets.

3/ Metal DuraPost.
DuraPost’s are a new idea with strength, durability and good looks.
Panels are attached to the posts with external quality round head woodscrews.
These very strong posts have been tested in 70mph winds and come with a manufacturers guarantee of 15 or 25 years.

All three types of post are dug into the ground and the post secured in the hole with either a dry mix of ballast and cement (about 7 to 1 mix with no extra water added) rammed up around the post or postmix (please follow the directions on the bag). For any fence height, the post hole should be a minimum of 600mm (2′) deep.  For fence heights over 1.5m we recommend that the hole depth is increased to a minimum of 750mm (2′ 6″).

Remember, if your fence line is on a slope, each panel will need to step up or down. To accommodate this you will need to allow for longer posts. Our Sales Team can help you work out what height posts you require.
