Palisade and Picket Fencing

 

 

Palisade, or Picket fence as it is sometimes called, is very popular as front or back garden boundary fencing, particularly where a solid fence is not needed or desired.  Picket fencing can also be used to partition off parts of the garden, such as the veggie patch from children & pets.  Matching gates & fittings are available.

All our Palisade fencing materials are pressure treated with preservative for longevity. To produce the traditional cottage style fence, once the timber has dried, it can be stained or painted. Paint should be water based, microporous & of external quality.  Dark colours should be avoided as they attract heat which may cause additional movement in the timber.

General Information about Palisade Fencing.

  • Round & pointed topped Palisades are available from stock in the most common heights of 900mm, 1.05m & 1.2m.  Flat top, other heights ranging from 0.60m (2') to 1.8m (6') are usually made to individual customer specifications. 
  • For Palisades lower than 900mm high, round top or flat top Palisades are safer.
  • Palisade ( Picket )can be supplied in kit form in4 standard bay sizes ( Centre of post to centre of post ), ranging from 1.8m (6’) to 3m (10’).  We do not recommend exceeding 3m bays, although 3.6 m rails are available for use in unusual circumstances and where there is no other choice.
  • Generally, 1.2m high Palisades and below require 2 rails.  1.35m to 1.8m high Palisades need 3 rails.
  • Rails between the posts can either be triangular shaped Arris rails or sawn square rails.  These fit into mortices cut into the posts at preset dimensions for the height of the fence required.  This method can be used on flat or sloping ground.
  •  For flat ground & easy assembly, square rails can also be screwed onto the face of the posts. The Palisades are attached to the rails so that they run continuously for the complete length of the fence, including in front of the posts.
  • Gravel boards can be fitted at the bottom of the fence and are available in lengths to match the rails.  This raises the Palisades up away from the ground and can also have other benefits such stopping balls etc rolling through the gaps between the Palisades.
  • Palisade spacing is normally “ hit & miss” using a palisade as a spacer.  The spacing can be adjusted to suit individual requirements.  For small children we would advise using round tops and a closer spacing which will help to prevent little people from climbing the fence.
  • Capping rail (for flat top Palisades only) and Routered posts can be included if desired.

    For 38mm (1 1/2")  spacing multiply the number of feet in the fence line by 2.66 OR length in metres by 8.7
    For 50mm (2")  spacing multiply the number of feet in the fence line by 2.4 OR length in metres by 7.9

Information

This is a text-based metric/imperial converter which means it has some limitations in the format in which it expects the data.

Things like 1' 6", 12ins or 2.3m are fine but don't mix imperial and metric formatting, for example 1.5ins (for an inch and a half) won't work, you can use 1 1/2 ins however.

The units that are recognised are as follows:

  • Imperial units
    • yd, yds, yard, yards
    • ', ft, foot, feet
    • ", in, ins, inch, inches
  • Metric units
    • m, metres
    • cm, cms, centimetres
    • mm, mms, millimetres
