When building either a barbed or smooth wire fence, it is important to know the proper construction of braces. This article will discuss different types and the construction of commonly used braces. Braces are the strongmen of any fence. They take on several hundred to thousands of pounds of tension exerted from each strand of wire.waterproof deck material
Properly designed braces will offset wire tension and last for many years. Braces should be constructed wherever a fence changes directions, or at least every 1,320 feet (i.e., one-quarter mile). In sandy or loose soil, braces may be needed every 1,000 feet. Corner braces are used at ninety-degree corners and are constructed with three posts anchored in the ground as a double-span brace (Figure 1). Single-span braces consist of two posts anchored in the ground (Figure 2).
Two common types of braces are the H-brace (Figure 3), also known as the horizontal brace, and the N-brace (Figure 4). The H-brace is the most commonly used. It has two, eight-foot posts anchored in the ground to a depth of at least 3.5 feet with another piece (i.e., the crossmember) positioned horizontally between them (Figure 3). The horizontal cross member should be placed at approximately threequarters of the height of the anchored posts above the ground. The crossmember can be a wood beam or pole. To secure it, notch posts on the sides facing each other (i.e., create an indentation with a hatchet or other tool) to set the crossmember in between the posts. Secure the crossmember by nailing a 10-inch spike through the top of each end, into each anchored post.recycled rubber decking flooring
The next component of an H-brace is a diagonal wire, which is used to offset the direction of fence pull (i.e., tension). This wire is often constructed from smooth, nine-gauge wire. It is extremely important that the diagonal wire runs in the opposite direction of the pull of the main wire of the fence to provide stability. In Figure 3, the barbed wire is stapled on the bottom of the left post (the end post) iStock Figures provided by R. Malisani Figure 1: (Above) Double-span H-brace. Figure 2: Single-span H-brace.

Therefore, diagonal wire must run from the top of the post on the right to the bottom of the end post (on the left) to offset the tension of the fence and create stability.
