Wire Fencing

This is the usual farm fencing used in Canada. Fencing manufacturers supply a variety of fence heights, wire sizes and wire spacings to suit your needs. For cattle and horses, use fencing 1050-1200 mm (42-48 in.) high; for sheep and pigs only, use fencing 800-900 mm (32-36 in.) high. Page wire fencing is not suitable where people will try to climb over. For extra security, add a barbed wire to the top of the fence. This may be either the traditional double-strand type or the newer single-strand type. The single-strand is cheaper, a little stronger and it has more barbs.

Split Rail Fencing

A split-rail fence or log fence is a type of fence constructed out of timber logs, usually split lengthwise into rails and typically used for agricultural or decorative fencing. Such fences require much more timber than other types of fences, and so are generally only common in areas where wood is abundant. However, they are very simple in their construction, and can be assembled with few tools even on hard or rocky ground. They also can be built without using any nails or other hardware; such hardware was often scarce in frontier areas. They can even be partially or wholly disassembled if the fence needs to be moved or the wood becomes more useful for other purposes. During the American Civil War, these split rail fences were a major source of firewood for both the Union and Confederate armies. Call us today for all of your split rail fencing needs.

Wood is the “classic” form of horse fencing, either painted planks or natural round rails. It is one of the safest materials for containing horses. Wood or a synthetic material with similar properties is the best option for small paddocks, pens and corrals. It can be used to fence pastures and has some ability to give or break if a horse collides with it. However, wood is expensive, high maintenance and not completely without safety concerns; boards can splinter, nails can stick out and cause lacerations. Wood-like synthetics are even more expensive, but are often safer and lower maintenance. Call FIX-A-FENCE today for all of you fencing needs.

Privacy Fencing

Privacy fencing is the use of fences to protect privacy, usually by preventing outsiders from seeing onto your property. There are cultural differences with regards to the use of fences around properties. For instance, it is common in European countries to put a fence around the entire border of one’s property, including the front border, with a gate to obtain access to the property. However, in many parts of North America, fences are commonly used only on the borders between properties that back onto each other (on the side away from the street) and along the sides of properties up to the point where the house begins. The front yards in such neighborhoods are often open to the street. The privacy fence is often made of a rot-resistant wood, usually cedar, and is generally limited to six-feet in height.

PVC Fencing

There are also application in the market, which utilize only virgin raw materials. Its most widespread use is in outdoor deck floors, but it is also used for railings, fences, landscaping timbers, cladding and siding, park benches, molding and trim, window and door frames, and indoor furniture. Manufacturers claim that wood-plastic composite is more environmentally friendly and requires less maintenance than the alternatives of solid wood treated with preservatives or solid wood of rot-resistant species. Resistant to cracking and splitting, these materials can be molded with or without simulated wood grain details. Even with the wood grain design these materials are still visually easy to distinguish from natural timber as the grains are the same uniform color as the rest of the material. For those of you with durability and longevity on your mind for your fencing we highly recommend PVC fencing for your year round fencing needs. Call FIX-A-FENCE today for all of your fencing needs.

Temporary Fencing

Temporary Fence is used where building a permanent fence is either impractical or unneeded. Temporary fencing is used when an area needs barriers for the purposes of public safety or security, crowd control, theft deterrent, or equipment storage. Its most common use is as construction hoarding for security fencing around building sites. Other uses for temporary fencing include venue division at large events and public restriction on industrial construction sites. Temporary fencing is also often seen at special outdoor events, parking lots, and emergency/disaster relief sites.

Common forms of temporary fencing include a variety of plastic fencing or panels constructed of chain link, steel or wire. Fencing commonly consists of individual panels that can be set up around the perimeter of the desired area to be fenced in.
