Bending Rigid Fence Panels

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop, the e-commerce of Rete Plastic. In this video, we will show you how to install rigid fence panels on a curve. The idea for this tutorial comes from one of our customers who purchased materials from us, specifically rigid fence panels, and sent us photos of the finished work, which included curves and steps.

Before explaining how to do the work, I want to show you the photos of our customer's project to pay tribute. He did an excellent job despite the challenges of fencing on a curve and with steps.

How to Bend Rigid Panels

We have two main ways to bend a rigid panel:

  • Leave it as it is and try to curve it gently. We put it under some supports and press it gently, even just with our feet, to try to give it a slight curvature.
  • Cut the rods that restrict the bending. These rods are part of the ribs that make the panel rigid. By cutting them, we allow the panel to be bent more easily.

To do this, I took a sample panel, specifically a Pano Pro with 50x200 mesh and 5 mm wire, and made two cuts. The first cut was made by eliminating the rod, while the second cut was made without cutting the rod, to show the aesthetic difference. By cutting these points, we can bend the panel by placing it on the ground, putting one foot on it, and pulling slightly with the hand.

Problems and Solutions

There are some problems to consider when bending a rigid panel:

  • Be gentle: You need to bend the panel gently to avoid creating sharp bends that would ruin the aesthetics of the curve.
  • Aesthetics: By cutting the rods, small visible gaps are created. If possible, it is advisable to weld the cut wires and grind them slightly to improve the appearance. A coat of paint in the same color can help prevent rust.

If you need to make a reverse bend, the concept is the same, but it might be necessary to cut the rods a bit more to allow the panel to bend in the opposite direction.
