The types of fences


  • Soft mesh Fencing   


The soft mesh is ideal for rough terrain or high relief; it is also the fastest and cheapest solution to put in place.

Meshes are usually small (50×50 mm, 100×50 mm) which prevents animals from entering the field.

The mesh can also be covered with a visual barrier or vegetation. Metal studs or wood (exotic or acacia) directly planted in the soil are used to support the grating making it a relatively simple installation.

The mesh is maintained by metal cables and staples or even crampons. However, the flexible fence is easy to cut which is not very strong and its aesthetic is basic.


  • Rigid panel grid


The rigid grid panel is most costly than any other fence. More rewarding than the flexible fence, it also adapts very well to slopes, slightly rugged, angles or contours sinuous.

The installation of poles requires precision and attention to detail; they are directly embedded in the ground or mounted on a wall, to ensure proper alignment of the panels.

More rigid and stronger than soft wire mesh, it is not a hedge that can accompany it to avoid the vis-à-vis. Like any fence, it prevents the passage of animals but remains relatively easy to cut. Even if the laying of the posts remains more complex than for a flexible grid, this solution is nevertheless of good value for money.
