ELECTRIC FENCING

An electric fence uses electric shocks to keep animals or humans away from a boundary.  It is mainly used for agricultural purposes and to enhance security.

BASIC MATERIALS:
 
Electric Fence Unit (controls the pulse)
Posts (plastic)
Wire (conducts the electricity and becomes the barrier)

Some semi-permanent electric fencing are powered by the mains, but  the voltage is carefully controlled as to not administer a lethal shock to livestock or people.

POST AND RAIL FENCING

Often used as a decorative form of fencing, post and rail fences can also be used to enclose some forms of live stock.

BASIC MATERIALS:

Fence posts
Corner posts
Rail timber
Weak concrete mix
Preservative to treat cut timber ends- stops decay

If post and rail fencing is being used to hold horses an electric tape can be attached between the gaps for extra security. Never use barbed wire on fences that are keeping horses.


 

STOCK FENCING/ GALVANISED WIRE NETTING

Stock fencing is used to hold livestock, and is made from very heavy duty galvanised steel.

BASIC MATERIALS:

Fence Posts (large, wooden)
Galvanised Wire Netting/Mesh
Line straining wire- added for tension
Barbed Wire- optional, extra security- DO NOT use if fence is for horses.

 800mm tall galvanised wire is ideal for holding livestock such as pigs and lambs, but cattle and sheep would require something a little larger.


 

DEER FENCING

As deer can forage over large areas, deer fencing consists of strong but lightweight netting which can be erected easily.

BASIC MATERIALS:
 
Deer fencing mesh
Fence posts (tall)
Battens

The mesh should be attached to the post by battening it. This stops the mesh filaments being damaged.


 
 

CHICKEN WIRE/CHICKEN FENCING

A common form of garden fencing, chicken wire can be used to hold chickens, small pets and protect plants and crops.

BASIC MATERIALS:

Chicken wire
Wooden posts

One of the more simple kinds of fencing to create; chicken wire has endless amount of uses.


 
 
 

RABBIT FENCING

Rabbit netting wire is used and is inserted underground where the rabbits burrow.

BASIC MATERIALS:

Rabbit wire- 30 inches high with an extra 6 inches underground which is aimed towards the rabbit harbourage. The wire should be 18 gauge with 1 inch hexagonal holes.
 
Wooden posts
Straining wires
Galvanised fence rings

Rabbits can chew through 19 gauge wire, and make sure the holes are to British Standards. European DIN standards are wider- rabbits can squeeze through this wire.
