PH Fencing – Snake Proof House Yard Project

The challenge was to install a rural type houseyard fence in steel yet with thought to making it as snake resistant as possible. The terrain varied from flat to sloping to quite steep.

PH Fencing used 2 metre long 100nb galvanised medium wall pipe from Duncan Equine, caps at 3 metre centres with welded Oval Cattle rail 115 x 42 x 2mm as a top rail. Due to the sloping ground they couldn’t go with a fixed bracket so had to fit and weld each rail.

They used Waratah Longlife 7/90/30 and Waratah Flexabel 2.5mm Medium Tension wire as a support for the 900mm x 6.5mm x 6.5mm x .63 White Snake Mesh they attached, 360m all up. The plain wires were run past the posts, attached with Davo’s Fencing clips and steel screws. Waratah C-Clips were used to attach the Stocktite to the Flexabel. 260mm Garden stakes were used to secure the snake mesh to the ground.
