The De-Fence range of fencing solutions now offers the market ‘the new alternative’ to palisade fencing when specifying or selecting security fencing products and services specifically designed to meet all levels of security required.
1. Planning & Preparation
Survey site carefully
Mark out corners
Mark out changes of direction in the fence line
Select your starting point ensuring that you are working down the slope. This makes stepping and post setting easier.
2. Establish a Sighting Post
Place a sighting post some distance down the fence
Attach a fish line
3. Dig holes for Posts
Mark out post hole centres
Dig holes of 300mm x 300mm wide, 600mm deep
Mix your batch of concrete at the same time as the steps mentioned above.
10 x Wheelbarrows of concrete mix to 1 x bag of cement should fill approximately 8 holes.
4. Position 1st Post
Assemble 1st panel and post
With Fixing Flange in position (see step 6), tighten bolts and nuts (Ensure that nut does not sheer)
Position post in 1st hole
5. Line Up & Fill
Line up the posts using fish line attached to sighting post
Use Spirit Level to ensure post is vertical
Fill post hole with concrete
6. Position 2nd Post and Mesh Assembly
Insert 2nd post in next hole and fit to end of 1st Mesh Panel
Insert 2nd Mesh Panel into 2nd Post
Using Flange Plate, secure the panels loosely
Once levelled or stepped - tighten bolts
Use props to hold panels in positions
7. Double Check Levels and Continue
Double check horizontal and vertical levels on 1st post
Ensure 2nd panel and post are still lined up with fish lines and also double check horizontal and vertical levels
Concrete 2nd post into place
Repeat this process with the rest of the posts and panels
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CHECK AND RECHECK.
Always return to the previous 3 posts and panels you have placed and check the levels. The panels can sometimes hang and pull the posts off the vertical. This is very hard to rectify at a later stage and also creates assembly problems at the corners.
8. Stepping the Panels
Follow the slope of the ground and step your panels
Slacken off the bolts and slide the panel down
Ensure you get an even step over the entire distance
