Post and Rail Fencing is an attractive and practical perimeter fence... 

Post and rail fencing comes in a number of varieties that include half rounded posts that are driven into the ground and square posts that are concreted in. Overlapping rails that usually are two or three deep strengthen the fence.

By adding a stock wire, it is perfect for keeping animals both in and out of an enclosed area such as dogs or chickens.

Rabbit wire can also be added that is dug 6 inches below ground level to prevent burrowing.

5 Bar Wooden Field Gates

Wooden field gates can be added as:

  • Pedestrian gates.
  • Single leaf gates up to 12 foot wide (vehicular gates usually in agricultural use).
  • Twin leaf gates with centre drop bolt (commonly used as property entrance gates).
  • All posts are weather topped for easy water run off.

All gates are fitted with galvanised gate furniture and posts are weathered to help water run off.

Tom and the team did a great job at a good price. They were very quick to do the fence repair and it was completed to a very high standard. I was so pleased I got them back a week later to replace more panels.

We contacted Chelmsford Fencing last Wed as during high winds it took posts and panels down, they were very quick with turning up at my address, they gave me 3 quotes and they turned up on Mon 20th Jan to fit new fencing. I'm really impressed with every aspect of the job that was done, I'd happily recommend or use them again

Everything You Need to Know

There are several styles of post and rail fencing, but the most commonly installed are:

Half Round

The posts and rails are half rounded in a rustic or machined variety depending on the required finished look. Posts are at 1.8 meter centres and either hand or machine driven with nailed on overlapping 3.6 meter rails (2,3 or 4 rails are used).

Square Cut

A popular choice when 5 bar field gates are are required as they are well matched. Posts are concreted in at 1.8 meter centres with nailed on overlapping 3.6 meter rails. There is an option for morticed posts for additional strength, but this is a more time consuming and expensive construction method.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will post & rail fencing last?

Post and rail has an expected useful life of 10-15 years.

This depends on several factors:

  • The use case. Keeping livestock can reduce the lifespan.
  • Ground condition. Sloping ground and boggy ground can cause movement in the fence.

Is the wood treated?

Yes all the wood is treated and has a green hue caused by the tanalising process which has an active copper ingredient.

Over time the green effect will fade, but the process is effective as stakes placed in the ground can last for more the 40 years.
