Installation Tips for Patriot™ Ornamental Wire Fence

General Overview of Installation

This is an ornamental 100% steel wire fence with welded section panel construction with all stainless steel fasteners used for connecting the aluminum or zinc rail end brackets to the steel posts. The finish is a powder-coat surface with a 8 year written warranty, which matches the warranty on the rest of the system. This style is available in black only.

It is fairly simple to install. The post holes only need be 6" diameter x 30-36" deep, so relatively small amount of concrete is required.The panels are all welded construction.The rails mount to the posts using rail end brackets.

The fence cannot be "raked", meaning installed out of square to follow slopes. This style fence, because of it's "one-piece" welded construction must be "stair-stepped" to follow the slope. Since this style fence attaches with rail end brackets, no special work has to be done to the post. Just install the posts on one section and calculate the drop for the next section and mount the dropped section to attain the "stair-stepped" effect.
