Installation Instructions


  • With T Posts

  • With Extra Security

To Do Explanation

Step 1 – Mark Area

T post step 1 - mark area


Create a straight line to mark the fence between the two end posts.

Step 2 – Measure Post Distance

T post step 2 - welded wire


Specify the post locations 2 -3m apart by using a tape measure.



For increased stability, reduce the spacing between your fence posts.

Step 3 – Install End Posts

T post step 3 - end posts


Use a post driver or mallet to sink the end posts 50cm into the ground.



To maintain consistent alignment, make sure the holes of the posts are oriented towards each other.

Step 4 – Check for Same Height

T post step 4 - same height


Secure a length of string between the end posts, and then verify that they have been installed at the same height by employing a tape measure.

Step 5 – Check for Straightness

T post step 5 - straightness


Utilise a spirit level to confirm that the posts have been set up perfectly straight.

Step 6 – Set in Concrete (Optional)

T post step 6 - concrete


For a stronger and more secure fence, anchor your posts in concrete. This involves digging a 50cm hole and pouring cement to provide a sturdy foundation for the posts.

Step 7 – Install Middle Posts

T post step 7 - middle posts


For the installation of middle posts, repeat steps 3-6.




Ensure that the posts are oriented in the same direction and have been set up in a consistent manner, being both straight and at the same height.

Step 8 – Install Tension Wire (Optional)

T post step 8 - tensioning wire


When using lightweight mesh, it’s advisable to secure a tension wire between the end posts to prevent any sagging.




Wrap the tension wire around the end posts’ hole and fasten it by twisting the wire’s end with pliers.

Step 9 – Attach Mesh to End Post

T post step 9 - mesh


Fasten the mesh to the end post by employing cable ties, which can be threaded through the post’s pre-drilled holes.




You can increase the number of cable ties to encircle the entire post.

Step 10 – Pull Tight

T post step 10 - pull


Stretch the mesh firmly and then fasten it to the second post using cable ties. Be cautious not to pull it excessively tight.



Continue with this procedure until you reach the final end post.

Step 11 – Attach to Tension Wire (Optional)

T post step 11


If you’ve installed a tension wire, fasten the mesh to it using cable ties, leaving approximately 30-45cm gaps between them.

Should I choose galvanised or PVC coated netting?

The choice is entirely yours. Both are durable and highly resistant to corrosion so the choice comes down to aesthetics and your personal preference.

What is wire mesh used for?

There are a number of uses for steel netting, which include fencing, tree and plant protection. It is often used for chicken cages and runs for small animals.

What strength netting should I choose?

The strength, or diameter of your wire should be chosen based on your specific needs, of course. For plant protection a relatively low strength should be adequate to keeps  small animals off, while if you are building animal runs to keep out foxes a high strength wire is recommended.
