Instructions for erecting fencesof braided fencing mesh

1) Preparatory work - levelling and tidying upąleveling and tidying of the area along the fence line

Before the installation team enters the area along the fence line, the area should be prepared.

The cleaning work includes removal of any obstacles preventing further work on the fence construction i.e. tree roots, remains of old concrete structures, cutting the grass, pulling weeds. It is recommended (although not necessary) to level the area.

2) Setting the boundary pointsń

The investor is obliged to mark the end points and fence bend places with wooden stakes or chalk on the basis of professional geodesic plans of the plot.

3) Marking out the boundary pointsłoż3) Placing gates and wickets on the fence line

When planning the location of the gates and wickets, it is worth remembering, especially for the panel fencing, that it should be a multiple of the whole module width L=2,5m, so as to minimize the need for modification of the prepared spans. Such a solution also increases the aesthetic effect of the entire structure.

3) Purchase of sand and cement

It is necessary to supply the construction site with sand and cement.

The estimated consumption is as follows:

(a) cement

- 25 kg for an average of 5 holes with the depth of about 70 cm and the diameter of about 30 cm

- 375 kg for pouring the concrete footing for the double/sliding gate including the wicket and posts

b) Sand

- 1000kg per 100m of woven mesh fencing or system panels

- 1000kg for pouring a concrete footing for a double-leaf/sliding gate including a wicket and posts

4) Installationż słvertical and displacement posts

The uprights are divided into start, corner and outlet posts. The start and corner posts act as so-called turnbuckle points. A turnbuckle point is a vertical post connected directly to one or two displacement posts (depending on whether it is an initial post, corner post or a post that divides a section exceeding 50mb in half).

The vertical posts are placed at an axial distance of L=2.5 m at a depth of approximately 50 cm.

Into the previously prepared pits, approximately 30 cm in diameter and 70 cm deep, insert the posts and pour relatively thin concrete (sand + cement mixed at a weight ratio of 3:1)

In order to level the posts, use a spirit level and a bricklayer's line. Pull the masonry line between the posts at the turnbuckle points. Align the through posts with the masonry line. Wait min. Wait min. 7 days depending on weather conditions for concrete setting.

The displacement post should be connected to the main (vertical) post at the turnbuckle points with a cap, clamp and screw at a height of approx. 2/3 of the main post at an angle of not less than 45 degrees, i.e. at a distance of approx. 1 m. Concrete the displacement posts as well and wait another few days.

5) Mountingż mounting of the fence net

At the turnbuckle points, on the three wire transect heights, mount the turnbuckle using a clamp and an M8 eye bolt.

On the through posts on the three wire gauge heights we mount the vias with a sheet metal screw using a screwdriver.

The netting is rolled into 10-metre rolls. Before starting the assembly of each roll, it is necessary to unroll it, aligning it to the level i.e. by turning the "pop-up" rods accordingly.

The assembly of the fencing net starts from a corner post or an initial post. At the beginning a tensioning rod should be put through the first mesh and fixed on the previously mounted screws with the mesh.

Weave the tension wire through the mesh and the previously mounted vias at three heights, approximately every 50cm.

Using a friction wrench fi 8mm, turn the turnbuckle until the wire reaches the optimum tension level.
