    Agricultural mesh fencing - is it available?

    We've got buffaloes and stray dogs coming onto our land and want to put up a barrier, a wall is too expensive. So we've decided on a fence and I was thinking would to use the mesh style agricultural fencing that's show in the pics below.

    There's a small farm near us that be raising deer and they've used this type of fencing, but none of the locals know where to find it (the owner of the farm isn't around to ask).

    Does anyone have info on where I could find this or prices?

    I will ask my staff here in BKK to find out for you, we should know anyway.

    Where are you?

    I'm also here in Bangkok, but the fencing is needed for our land in Nakhon Nayok.

    I prefer the square mesh fencing to cyclone fencing, from initial inquiries it appears to be about half the price and makes the place look more like a farm than a factory.

    Do you remember the price of your cyclone fencing? I've been quoted 150B per sq meter. The price of steel has gone up a lot.

    Just an update on this. We've found a company here in Bkk that makes the mesh B105 for 120cm x 1m

    Someone from the company can install the fencing properly (using wire strainers etc.) or if we like he will loan/rent us the strainer and we can have our own ppl do it. The same guy delivers the mesh and is happy to give us a quick run down on the procedure.

    I've put farm fencing long ago in Australia, so I have a fair idea of what's required. We also plan to bed the mesh in about 6 inches of concrete to prevent theft and dogs from getting in/out underneath.

    Any comments on this are welcome.

    Yesterday I passed a shop in BKK selling mesh but the normal diamond pattern, I don't know what B105 is. So I remembered your post. 10m of 1.5m is 2250 and 10m of 1.2m is 1800.

    But it sounds like you found the manufacturer. If it works out and you wold like to share your source maybe in the future I could help my customers by putting them together.

    B105 means B105 a meter, sorry about that. Actually it's B10,500 for 100m. This mesh stuff similar to the pics above, but info faxed from the company shows the rectangles may be too large, making it possible for dogs to get thru. We're checking the company out tomorrow.

    The diamond stuff you're referring to sounds like cyclone fencing. The price I've been given for this is B150 a sq meter, which sounds similar to what you've been quoted.

    So you have the fencing

    what I find difficult to find are proper supports for the end and corner posts

    all I have seen used are the normal posts propped up against the vertical posts and wired on - not a very good solution and ugly

    Actually I don't have the fencing yet, but have been speaking to the company. The faxed some info over, it has pics of different post set ups, incl. corner posts.

    Apparently there are steel posts available for B150 a piece, but there's a chance they'd be stolen.

    For the corner posts, they suggested the set up you mentioned. I'll be growing bouganvilia and other plants along the fence, so ugly posts won't be so visible.

    But considering the expense of the wire etc. it's worthwhile doing the job right. I'll be visiting them tomorrow.

    Personally I was happy to find someone who knew what a fence strainer was!

    We used to notch the main post and nail the diagonal supports to it. It worked well enough for us.

    Not sure I understand what you mean, they've suggested using concrete fence posts.

    yes Marmite, so was I, should have used the adjective "cement"

    I have found a place that sells the proper wire strainers, which is nice, but then the vertical cement posts need proper support, not just another post propped against them.

    What sort of price were the wire strainers?

    The faxed me pics of the corner posts, but being a fax it wasn't so clear. As they're the company making the stuff hopefully they've got something useful.

    why would you want to strain your fence for unless the lumps were to hard to swallow, but I don't why you would want to eat it anyway..

    Or are you guys talking about Fence/wire stretchers?
    Generally they are for single wire, but for net wire we used to cut 2- 2x4 as long as the net wire was tall, clamp then together and drill a few holes, maybe 1/4 inch, thru them and then bolt then together on the wire and use a small chain from the ends and a cable come along , one end to the back of a pickup and the other on the chain and pull the wire tight and secure to the posts.opf theo the t
    I used concrete posts when I built my chainlink yard fence and on the corners I had posts made the correct length to go from the bottom of the first post from the corner to about a foot from the top of the corner post but made without the wires sticking out to hook to the fence wire, that set in place and knocked down as the wire was stretched so the corner post stayed plumb. Been 6 years and no problems yet

    they do all sizes; the ones suitable for fencing are about B70 each
    I have reported your post

    When you say strainers do you mean posts?

    They guy doing the job came up with a good suggestion for the corner posts. He will put in the vertical posts, drill holes in them and attach rebar. Then he'll make formwork for the diagonal posts and make them in place from cement.

    This sounds like a good idea. We've got some of the Mrs family down to help, it's working out very well, I'm learning a lot from them about local building. They already know the price for everything which is great.

    A lot of locals are popping by offering their services. An old bloke wanted to clear the area along the fence and dig the post holes. We offered him B200 a day, but he wanted to price the job and asked B1,000.

    This is way too cheap, it's about 350 m and really thick bamboo in places. After working for an hour he asked to renegotiate the price!

    We've checked out the mesh, it's proper ring lock fencing imported from Australia. Price depends on height and size of the gaps between the wire. They also have 'star pickets' imported from Australia, these are B150 - B170, but the worry is someone will steal them.

    Star pickets are from Australia, if you do a google image search I'm sure you'll find pics.

    Maybe my question should have been phrased differently. What is the name of the Bangkok company that impoerts them? Where are they located?
