Fencing on a Curve

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop, the e-commerce of Rete Plastic. Today we want to address a topic that often raises questions among our customers: how to build a fence on a curve. Fences, in fact, are not always linear and can present various types of curves. In this tutorial, we will guide you step by step on how to tackle this challenge.

Types of Curves

First of all, it is important to distinguish between four types of curves:

  • Light curves
  • Very wide curves
  • Very tight curves with a reduced radius
  • Fences with mesh or panels

Let's see how to handle each of these situations.

Panel Fences

Panel fences, in the presence of curves with a very wide radius, do not present particular problems. The panels, in fact, are not under tension and can be laid as modules on the wall or on the ground. In this case, two-meter panels can be laid without affecting the integrity, technicality, or aesthetics of the fence.

When faced with very tight curves, the situation changes. In these cases, it is necessary to shorten the panels to prevent them from cutting the curve diagonally. This involves using more posts and accessories, increasing costs. It is essential that the panels remain within the thickness of the wall to ensure proper placement.

Mesh Fences

Mesh fences require particular attention as they involve tension that panels do not require. Here’s how to manage different situations:

Wide Curves

When the curve is very wide, it is not necessary to use brace arms. Instead, posts can be placed every two meters, keeping them slightly off balance towards the outside of the curve. This trick allows the posts to return to the correct position once the mesh is tensioned. It is important that the posts are inclined about 3-4 centimeters towards the outside of the curve.

Tight Curves

In the presence of very tight curves, it is necessary to use brace arms to stabilize the posts. Each post must be braced to counteract the tension of the mesh. Again, the posts should be positioned slightly off balance towards the outside.

Mesh Placement

A final important tip concerns the placement of the mesh. It is always better to place it towards the outside of the curve. This facilitates the tensioning of the mesh and improves its stability. When the mesh is laid on the inside of the curve, it is more difficult to achieve uniform tension and there is a risk of compromising the stability of the fence.


In conclusion, fencing on a curve requires some specific precautions, but with the right tips and tools, it can become a simple and successful operation.
