Answer : An acre is an area measurement, we need a linear footage measurement of the fence line and the number of strands you wish to use to determine the amount of fencing material you need for your installation.
2. How is this material installed?
Answer: Rubber fencing is installed by simply nailing directly through it into wooded posts, we typically use 16 penny galvanized nails, or you can install it with screws. This material must be stretched when it is installed. Because this material is under tension, corner post MUST BE WELL BRACED. Unroll material as it was rolled up to avoid tangling, starting at the top nail one end into corner post, grab other end of material and pull with cum-a-long from a post that has been temporarily braced. After tighten go back and nail material at each fence post.
3. Can we use T-post?
Answer: T-post may work, but are not a recommended option, wooded post will have to be used often to stabilize the fencing.
4. Can this fencing be attached directly to trees?
Answer: Yes, trees work as excellent post. Additionally post may be needed between trees, please refer to our pictures on wooded fence lines.
5. Does this fencing come in other colors?
Answer: No, it comes in any color of black you like. We do not recommended trying to color the material, as whatever you put on it will not expand or contract with the material at the same rate and will peel or fall off. If install properly the fencing looks very attractive.
6. Will this material sag over time?
Answer: If material is stretched properly during installation, sagging should not occur. The amount of fabric in the material, which is where the strength is, is far more superior to other material in the market place, and can handle substance-able abuse.
7. How do you splice the material to make a longer line?
Answer: We do not recommend splicing the material. It is best to start and stop at a post. Splicing will create a snag hazard where someone will get hurt.
8. Can this fencing be used for cows?
Answer: Yes, with cows we recommend strands being installed closer together. With horses we use 12in spacing, with cows we use 8in spacing.
9. How far apart should we place the fence posts?
Answer: We recommend 8ft to 10ft spacing, we personally use 10ft pole spacing. We do this to use less post. If you go beyond 10ft pole spacing, you run the risk of horses moving the strands and walking through it.
10. What is the delivery cost?
Answer: Due to the weight and bulk of this material, shipping cost can be pricey. Please call us with your fencing needs and time frame, and we should be able to come up with better options.
11. What is the life expectancy of this material?
Answer: We warranty this material for 10 years, it will easily do twice that. There is an installation 20 miles north of us that has been up since 1973. This is long life material, the post will fail first.
12. Can we order online?
Answer: No, we would prefer that you call us, so that we have a clear understanding of your fencing needs, and we can answer any questions you may have.
