Preventing wildlife and people from entering a 2 million gallon slurry lagoon was the most recent project for experienced Lancaster based fencing contractor, Chris Alty and his team. Lined with a plastic membrane buried three quarters of a metre into the ground at the perimeter, the lagoon located at W.R. Clarke and Partners Farm, Cinderbarrow, required 280 metres of 2m high Hampton NET™ Fencing combined with Hampton’s strong metal box and angle strainer systems and StapleloK intermediate metal posts.
Barring access to the slurry lagoon by unauthorised persons, wildlife and livestock is a priority governed by Health and Safety Executive guidelines. The perimeter structure specification stipulated small apertures in the mesh, to help prevent hand or footholds, and barbed wire at the top as a further deterrent. Furthermore, the fence was required to withstand extreme force at its base to prevent it being pushed upwards from the bottom. Choosing Hampton NET™ metal fencing and post systems over alternative, more traditional, fencing comes with the reassurance of strength, rigidity and longevity; a fence system that will last for more than 30 years in normal conditions.
Hampton’s recently launched metal strainer systems provide the versatility to allow for easy changes in direction of the fence line and the resilience to withstand the harshest of weather and ground conditions. Supplied in both angle and box strainer options, the metal strainer posts are offered in various lengths suitable for fence heights up to 2.6 metres. Conveniently located bolts prevent fences from lifting under tension on undulating terrain.
Combined with Hampton’s intermediate metal post system, StapleloK, customers can be assured of a fully integrated metal post system that delivers on quality, versatility, strength and durability.
