What Is A Rackable Steel Fence?

If you attempt to install a steel fence on a slope or elevation difference, you know this process takes work. However, with a rackable fence, you can install a fence on an incline or decline way easier than attempting to install a regular fence picket. Some of these fence panels are sold with a pivot for ease of use.

How Do I Make Fence Fittings Rackable?

When creating a rackable fence, you must ensure the rail matches the slope you attempt to install. The pickets and posts will remain vertical. You can use galvanized steel posts or tubing with a zinc coating if you have a steel fence. These posts are durable and will last many years.

How Do I Create A Fence On Slope?

To create a fence fit for slopped installation first:

  1. Measure what angle your slope is on to find the correct places to cut.
  2. Once you know the measurements, cut the rails and place them on the posts.
  3. Then, place the pickets.

If you have completed these steps correctly, the fence will closely fit with the slope of the ground. Instead of looking jagged at the bottom, you’ll be able to tell a vast difference in how the rackable fence follows the curves of a yard. This is what makes a rackable fence different.
