Challenges involved in the project

  • Constructing a fox proof fence just inside an existing boundary that couldn’t be disturbed meant limited vehicle access, and the requirement for large gates meant they were built from scratch.
  • Anti digging netting was laid out first along the ground then the fence was punched through it and built over the top.
  • Running a hotwire around the top created the challenge of welding insulators to the post caps.

Products used on the project

  • A special 1800mm netting dispensing trolley was built just for this job due to limited vehicle access.
  • Walters Fencing wire spinners, clip gun guides, and straining plates were used extensively.
  • Gallagher solar energiser, Waratah plain wire, and Angas 1800mm high netting.
  • 150nb gal strainer posts and custom built tieback stay systems – made in house.

Outcome of the project

  • Foxes have been kept out of the henhouse! Customer was very happy and paid on time.

This project by Walters Fencing has been nominated in the Australian FENCING Awards 2021.
