Fence Types

board fence

Board Fence

Board fence was the staple of fencing for all types of animal containment for decades. It is still widely used for horse fencing, as well as decorative fencing. Posts are spaced every 8' and an optional cap or cover board is often placed at every vertical board joint for a finished appearance. This three board fence is constructed of 1 x 6 x 16' poplar treated boards, and full round CCA treated 5-6” x 8' fence posts. Posts are spaced every 15' and a cap or cover board is placed at every vertical board joint for a professional finished look. The treated boards and posts will ensure long life.

Split Rail Fence

Split Rail

The rugged look of split rail fence is ideal in a rustic setting. Its decorative uses are well known, but it is also very functional. Split rail is available in 2, 3, and 4 rail fence designs. The rails are pressure treated which will result in a longer life than non-treated rails. Due to recent Federal Government regulations, split rail fence cannot be treated with Copper Cromin Arsenate (CCA) when in use in residential or playground type situations. Alternate treatments approved by the Federal Government include Natural Select and (ACQ). Both of these treatments will also provide a longer life for your fence.

High Tensile

 

High Tensile

Although high tensile fencing has been in the U.S. for over 20 years, its impact has been tremendous. This single strand 12 ½ gauge 200,000 PSI (pounds per square inch) Class 3 galvanized wire can be used as a non electrified or electrified fence. It is very versatile, can be installed by a homeowner and lasts for many years. The number of strands of wire, whether or not to use electric fence, and the number of electrified strands will all be determined by the purpose of the fence. Post spacing will mainly be determined by the terrain. Post depth and post height on top of the ground will be determined by weather and frost depth, as well as animal height and stock pressure. Pictured here is a 6 strand high tensile fence with post spacing every 30' with 2 Polypicketts. High Tensile fencing uses some specifically designed tools and hardware for its erection. For more information on these tools view our fence components section.

12 ½ gauge 179,000 PSI (pounds per square inch) high tensile wire Class 3 galvanized wires have been combined in different configurations to offer a wide variety of fencing options. Woven wire is available in any height from 4' to 10' and has a stay wire spacing of either 3”, 6” or 12”.

Make sure to note that woven wire is a general term – there are great differences in the types of woven wire fence found on the market. Make sure to take into account the gauge, PSI rating, and class of galvanization when
comparing all these different types of woven wire fence.

Hotcote

When Horsecote is bonded with strands of black carbon, it is then able to be used as an electric fence – known as Hotcote. Hotcote is an effective electric fence to deter or contain animals and is available in white, black, and brown in 1320’ rolls. Hotcote can be used alone or in conjunction with Horsecote, Horserail or traditional High Tensile Wire. The picture above shows 5 strands of Hotcote Fence with 1 strand of 4” Horserail. Note the non-traditional bracing systems used in the Horsecote and Hotcote applications. This bracing system is recommended for use with horses - it aids in preventing legs or hooves from getting caught.

Horserail

 

Horserail

Painted board fence tends to be a predominant fence design for horses although it requires regular maintenance to sustain its beauty. Horserail was developed to fool the eye - providing the look of a traditional painted board fence without the regular maintenance. Horserail is available in colors of white, black and brown in 3 different size rails: 4.25”, 5”, and 6”. The 4.25” web is bonded between 2 - 12 ½ gauge 200,000 PSI wires which are bonded at the top and bottom for strength. The 5” web is bonded with 3 wires and the 6” web is bonded with 4 wires, which gives the 6” a wide board look.
