There are many different types of fencing, using all kinds of materials. Most people associate the term fencing with timber. Timber fencing can come in many forms, lap panels with timber posts probably being the most common. Close board fencing is also a very common application, Timber posts can be pressure treated and last a long time, but we prefer to use concrete. Whether they are slotted or bolt to posts, used with a concrete gravel board, they provide more peace of mind due to the fact they take a lot longer to deteriorate, and are usually easier to work with when the timber applications attached to them are past there best (no pulling out rusty nails). If the weather or any other element has made the timber attached to these types of posts non repairable, removing a panel from slotted posts or unbolting a section of close board fencing makes repairs a lot easier! if the least maintenance possible is your cup of tea, why not have full concrete panels made to look like walling, Or recycled mixed plastic fencing. as we say at Brantal Surfacing “the choice is yours”.
If you wish to have chain link fencing around tennis courts, football pitches and all other sports grounds, or just as a perimeter fence around something you wish to protect, or keep out. whether it is a domestic or commercial application, you can be sure we will provide the best engineered service possible.
If it is timber or concrete posts that you require, we will use this rule. One third of the over ground height will be held in place underground by strong concrete. This might seem to be over engineered. Most people will think that a six foot (or 1.8m) timber panel, is ok being held up by a post that only needs two foot (.6m) to be underground, we disagree. there is nothing wrong with over engineering these applications as it gives us, and our clients/customers peace of mind that the job we have been charged with will be done to last as long as possible.
Please take a look at a few of these examples on this page.
