Metal Fencing Measuring Guide

Metal Fencing Measuring Guide

 

Often spanning large areas, a metal fence can sometimes be a bit confusing when selecting the amount of posts and panels you may need. As such follow the below steps or call us on 0844 804 5577 or send us your sizes and we will gladly work out what is required.

 

Installing Between 2 Fixed Points

Start by measuring the total space you have available to work with and write this down so you can refer back to it.

Start by roughly working out the amount of standard sizes panels you might need. Remember these are 1830mm as standard.

 

Example

An overall space of 8000mm with the fencing fixed to a wall at both ends would need 4 full panels and one made to measure section.

8000mm (overall space) – 7320mm (size of 4 standard metal fence panels) – 200mm (size of 4 x 50mm posts) = 480mm

So in this instance you would need to order as follows

  • 4 x standard metal fencing panels @ 1830mm in length
  • 1 x made to measure fence @ 480mm in length
  • 4 x square metal posts @ 50mm in diameter

 


 

Installing Between No Fixed Points

The process is the same as above however you will also need to allow for additional posts at each end to provide a fixing point.

 

Example

A 8000mm overall space with the fencing fixed to posts at both ends would need 4 full panels and one made to measure section.

8000mm (overall space) – 7320mm (size of 4 standard metal fence panels) – 300mm (size of 6 x 50mm posts) = 380mm

So in this instance you would need to order as follows;

  • 4 x standard metal fencing panels @ 1830mm in length
  • 1 x made to measure fence @ 380mm in length
  • 6 x square metal posts @ 50mm in diameter
