Sheep fencing

The sheep fencing or also called sheep grid or chestnut fencing, we supply in chestnut wood but increasingly also in acacia wood. The poles for sheep fencing are cleaved by machine, giving them a rustic, natural and decorative appearance. A point is then sawn at one end of the stick. Using galvanised iron wire 1.8 mm thick, the sticks are then woven together on the fencing machine and the fencing is rolled up on a 5- or 10-metre roll. The height of the fencing varies from 60-80-90-100-120-150 and 180 cm. The spacings between the vertical sticks (batten spacing) are also variable. The most commonly requested batten spacings are 4-5 cm and 8-9 cm. The choice of this depends on the function of the fencing. Should the fencing serve to stop rabbits, chickens or small dogs, then the short batten spacing 4-5 cm is recommended. The larger batten spacing of 8-9 cm is more often used for sheep, goats or larger dogs. This batten spacing is also used around ponds, swimming pools and for tree protection. As the sticks are not straight, the batten spacing is not equally wide everywhere. This is not a problem.
