Tekplas Decorative Plastic Post Chain Fencing kits contain everything you will need to easily install a good looking and durable chain fence which will enhance your garden.
The length of the chain in each box is 1400mm (approx. 5ft), this means that the maximum spacing between posts should be no more than 1225mm (approx. 4ft) post centre, this will allow for a pleasing arc to the chain. However, should you wish to install you posts closer together, simply cut the chain to the required length.
Post Type Selection
We offer two types of post options. Either our standard post height which you have selected i.e 1000mm, 900mm or 600mm high. The post will come with a 700m ground spike. You knock the ground spike into the ground between 300-400mm and then slide the post over the top. The 700mm spike is more of a temporary type of fixing. The ground will also need to be fairly soft. Or you can cement the post into the ground which is our recommend option. If your fitting the chain link fencing to solid ground, please see our fixing page for our solid floor fixing.
How many kits will I need?
To decide how many kits you will need for your fence, simply measure the total length of line of your new fence, decide on the distance between your posts and divide this number into the overall length. This will give you the number of kits needed, in addition to these you will need one finishing post to finish the fence run. Please see related items
