It’s important to highlight that the ordering process we’re discussing for Premium Steel Post and Rail fencing can be equally valuable for individuals placing orders for morticed timber post and rail fencing. 


Step 1: Utilise the Map My Fence Tool 

Before you start ordering materials, it’s essential to have a clear plan in mind. Thanks to modern technology, interactive tools like “Map My Fence” can help you visualise your fencing design accurately. 

Once you’ve sketched out your ideal layout, submit it for a quote. This preliminary step is critical in ensuring you have a solid starting point for your fencing project. 

If you wish, you can also check out other tools to help you create an accurate fencing plan. 




Step 2: Determine Your Material Needs 

Now that you have a quote and a clear design in hand, it’s time to finalise your list of materials for the Premium Steel Post and Rail Fencing. 

Here’s a breakdown of the types of posts you’ll need: 

End Posts: These are your starting and ending points for the fence line. They have holes or mortices on one side and are positioned at the beginning and end of your fence lines.  They are also used either side of a gateway. 


Corner Posts: For each 90-degree turn in your fence line, you’ll need a corner post with pre-cut mortices or slots. These posts are essential to maintain the stability and alignment of your fencing. 


T Posts: If your fencing design includes internal fence lines branching out from the boundary fence, T posts will be required at those junctions to provide support. 


4-Way Posts: Internal fences that intersect at a single point will need 4-way posts to ensure stability and structural integrity. 


Line Posts: 

Line posts are a smart design with slots or mortices on two sides of the post, positioned directly opposite each other. These posts are also commonly referred to as intermediate posts. 


Step 3: Calculate Line Posts 

Line posts, also known as intermediate posts, play a vital role in maintaining the integrity of your fence between the end, corner, and specialized posts. To calculate the number of line posts needed: 


Calculate the total linear meterage of your project. 

Divide the linear meterage by 2.94 meters (centre-to-centre spacing). 

This calculation will give you an estimate of the total posts required. 


Remember, if you have gates within a fence run, add an extra post at the end of each fence run. For instance, a 100-meter fence would require 34 posts. After adding the 2 extra end posts, you’ll need 36 posts in total. Deduct the end posts (4) from this total to find out how many line posts you need. In this case, it’s 32-line posts. 


The simple sketches below would further clarify the calculation of the required posts.
