Common Questions

Why is demarcation fencing usually installed?

Demarcation fencing is usually installed to designate the boundary of the land and is commonly seen in farmer’s fields and rights of way. Often, it is used to stop vehicles accessing areas where they could damage grass, football pitches, park attractions, or pedestrian only areas. It can also be used to indicate danger such as a cliff edge, reservoir, or lake, without blocking the view for maintenance or aesthetic reason, with warning signs to signal the risks to people.

What do I use as gate in the middle of a run of knee rail or silver rail fencing?

Sometimes, small gaps usually the size of a wheelchair are left in demarcation fencing such as knee rail or silver rail fencing to allow pedestrian access but stop vehicles. If maintenance or emergency vehicles need access, a gap in the fencing large enough for a vehicle but with a warden barrier or uni gate is usually installed. This offers a simple and attractive manual access solution, they can be locked shut with keys given to authorised personnel when required.

If using bollards or marker posts as a demarcation boundary, what spacing should they be at?

We have a whole blog post discussing bollard spacing. For bollards or posts as a demarcation boundary, they should be spaced at a maximum distance of 1200mm. This is to prevent vehicles but allow pedestrian and wheelchair access.
