Green Brace Arm for Fence. Let's Discover It!

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop. Today we'll talk about the green plastic-coated L brace arm. Here are some technical features you need to know. L-shaped brace arms, as the name suggests, have an L shape and are available in various sizes: 25x25 mm, 30x30 mm, and 40x40 mm, depending on the desired height. Made of green plastic-coated iron, these brace arms are available in six different heights.

Uses of the L Brace Arm

The L-shaped brace arms are extremely versatile and can be used in various contexts: agricultural, residential, industrial, and so on. However, they are not recommended for sports use, as they are not robust enough to withstand intense physical efforts. In a future video, we will discuss the brace arms more suitable for sports applications.

Installation of the Brace Arm

Installing an L-shaped brace arm is a fairly simple operation, with a difficulty level of 2 out of 5. Each brace arm comes with a galvanized bolt included in the price, necessary for fastening to the post. The brace arm should be attached to the second hole from the top of the post, using the through bolt and nut to secure it in an inclined position.

Regarding fastening to the ground, there are two options. If you have a wall, you can anchor the brace arm using the designated hole. If the brace arm needs to be positioned on the ground, it should be inserted into the ground for about 25 centimeters and cemented to ensure stability.

Installation Steps

The brace arm should be placed after installing the posts. After making the holes in the ground and cementing the posts, once the cement is dry, you can position the brace arms before installing the tension wires or the mesh. A common question concerns the height of the brace arm in relation to the mesh. If the mesh is installed on a wall, the brace arm should have the same height as the mesh; for example, for a mesh 1.50 meters high, the brace arm should be 1.50 meters high. If the mesh is installed on the ground, the brace arm should be 25 centimeters higher than the mesh, so for a mesh 1.50 meters high, the brace arm should be 1.75 meters high.

Quantity of Brace Arms Needed

The number of brace arms needed depends on the configuration of the fence. In general, you need one for each start and two for each corner of the fence. You can find more details in a specific video dedicated to this topic.

Aesthetics of the Brace Arm

From an aesthetic point of view, the brace arm has a flat part and a cut part. The flat part is placed outside the fence, so that the mesh passes in front of it, maintaining the same alignment as the post. If you need to position the brace arm on the other side, you simply turn it so that the flat part is always facing outward.
