While we might be known for our luxury barn products such as horse stalls and barn doors, we also offer a premium fencing option to our clients. When it comes to horse fencing for your farm, there are so many options to choose from. Options can include everything from steel-based fencing to PVC fencing to HDPE fencing to your traditional wood post fencing. As you can tell, the available options are almost as diverse as the amount of horse breeds out there!
At American Stalls, we offer two types of fencing products to our clients. The first being steel-based post and rail fencing. The second is our HDPE fencing. In this article, we would like to cover the in's and out's of our HDPE fencing because it is an option that we recommend to virtually every client.
To begin, our American HDPE Fencing is 100% made in the USA just like our custom stabling equipment. Our Fencing utilizes 2' x 6' rails that are manufactured like typical lumber sizes. The construction difference between our HDPE is that American HDPE Fencing is hollow. This makes it lighter and easier to work with than traditional wood fencing. Our HDPE rail weighs about as much as a wooden rail of the same dimensions. However, our post weighs about 25% as much as solid wood of the same dimensions.
Our American HDPE Fencing is available in 2, 3, 4, and 5 rail configurations. Our diverse offerings allow clients the needed flexibility for their various fence applications. Our two-rail HDPE horse fence is the perfect fit for dressage arenas and also entryways in driveways. This system allows ample visibility to deter horses and livestock from crossing and suddenly appearing in front of a vehicle.
Our three-rail HDPE horse fence is especially well suited for for paddocks, corrals, farm perimeter, dry lots and riding arena fencing. We recommend a rule of thumb to clients which is to have the top of the top rail equal to or greater than the horse’s withers. If you use our three-rail HDPE horse fence as premeter fencing, we do recommend to consider a hot wire addition. This is not because the horses could ever break all the way through the HDPE, but it is to give you, the horse owner, the 100% assurance that your fencing will stay in tact. This will also depend largely from horse to horse as some horses are very well-mannered.
As mentioned above, our HDPE Fencing has the ability to be fully customizable for your farm's needs. Similar to our luxury horse stalls, our HDPE Fencing is built with three core elements in mind: elegance, safety, and longevity. We offer our fencing in 8 stunning colors to complement the look you achieve in your American Stalls barn project. These colors include white, black, weathered wood, hunter green, and so much more.
PVC Fencing is a popular option chosen by many equestrians for his general popularity and its cost-effective price point. However, we strongly recommend clients against PVC fencing. The below photo demonstrates what can happen to fences made from PVC (or Vinyl). The primary issue is that PVC-Vinyl fencing becomes brittle in cold weather. Additionally, it doesn’t fair very well in warm temperatures upon impact either.
