Post, Wire & Batten

One of the most common fence types is post, wire and batten fencing. White Fencing uses industry best practice installation techniques combined with carefully purchased materials.

We can supply a Labour and materials price, using selected materials from preferred suppliers. We can also provide Labour only pricing if the client prefers.

White Fencing is also experienced in handwork jobs, when machinery and equipment cannot get on the fence line, normally due to steep terrain.

Post, wire and batten fencing is one of the most common types of rural fencing and is stock proof for sheep, cattle and horses. Generally 2.5 mm wire is used, though horse fencing may use 4 mm wire and coastal fencing requires a special galvinised wire.

White fencing uses NZ made wire products including wire, staples, gates and gate hardware. The reasoning behind this is product longevity and meeting industry standard quality. (wiremark logo)

SED means the smallest end diameter ½’s the posts are cut in half; quarters the posts are quartered.
