First mark out the correct post spacing. Next augur or dig a hole 300mm wide by 650mm deep. Fill the hole with a wet mix concrete mix and push the post into the concrete mix allowing the mix to flow up into the inside of the post.
First mark out the correct Gatepost location. Place the post in the hole and mark out the hinge location. Fit the hinge to the post making sure you have sufficient adjustment to correctly position the gate once the post is set. Place the post in the hole and fit the rails into the post. Before the rails are slid into the post block the ends of the rails with adhesive tape. Brace the post if required. Drive a single 12mm Steel Re-enforcing bar through the centre of the post into the soil then core fill the post with a wet mix concrete. After the concrete has set you can bolt the gate to the hinge.
After you have installed your posts and strainer assembly you bolt your Insul-Strainer to your end post and slide the Zappa Rail into it. Using a Shifting Spanner or 20mm Spanner crank the insul-strainer up until the Zappa Rail is straight and tight, if you do not have sufficient tension on the Zappa Rail it will sag and warp. The insul-strainer is a permanent fixture on your end post making maintenance simple and minimal, ensuring your Zappa Rail always looks great!
Zappa Rail and Equirail can be easily joined with our Stainless Steel Joining bracket.
Alternatively Zappa Rail can be joined using 2 Gripples.
Using a Knife, strip away 20mm of conductive plastic exposing the wire inside. Using a wire joiner screw your active wire from your electric fence energizer into the exposed wire. Make sure your energizer is set up based on the specific operation manual for the best result.
All of Think Fencing’s coloured products are made from a PVC acrylic composite, the PVC makes up the structure of the profile and the Acrylic capping layer provides the colour. This is very important as coloured PVC that is not capped will fade very fast. Whilst we use the best products available today a 10-year-old fence will not look like a 10-week-old fence. (It will however look significantly better than a 10-year-old timber fence)
