Sloping Fence Panels. How to Do It?

Have you decided to purchase your fence panels, like this one? Great! However, you have noticed that your land is sloping, perhaps very steeply. What should you do then?

Hello everyone, it's us at Fenceshop, the e-commerce arm of Rete Plastic. In this video, we will see how to lay rigid modular fence panels on sloping ground. If you are interested in versions on walls, steps, or other situations, we will make a specific video in the future.

Two Options for a Sloping Fence

When you have a fence panel, there are two main options: stepping or sloping.

  • Stepped Fence: If you opt for this solution, it's important to know that the fence must be placed leveled. The standard panel length is two meters, so you need to consider if this length is sufficient to leave a gap underneath that you like.
  • Sloped Fence: If you choose an inclined installation instead, you have to take into account several factors. The height difference at the edges of the slope and the adaptation of the panel are crucial aspects to consider.
Stepped Fence

If you decide to lay the fence in steps as shown in many of our project photos, it's important to evaluate the distance and height from the ground. The general rule is to keep the fence level, and if the slope is too steep, it might be necessary to reduce the panel's length.

For example, if a two-meter panel creates a 40-centimeter gap due to the steep slope, you might need to cut the panel to one meter to achieve a 20-centimeter gap, which might be more acceptable.

Sloped Fence

If you opt for an inclined installation, you need to consider various factors:

  • Height at the Ends: The diagonal of the panel increases height, creating imbalances at the two ends.
  • Panel Adaptation: You will need to adapt the panel to the slope using tools like a disc grinder and shears. This might require welding and aesthetic touch-ups that should be to your liking.
Additional Time and Costs

When laying a fence on a sloping ground, you have to consider that there will be more installation time and additional material costs. The inclined installation requires more attention, cuts, and additional accessories, which translates into increased costs.

For example, for each step, it might be necessary to add joints and make extra holes on the posts, which requires more time and materials.
