How to Install DJ Fencing Solutions

For Design Junction Steel Posts with Mounting Tabs

Step 1:Mark your holes at the width required by your panels and hardware
Step 2:Dig holes for your posts according to your local council regulations. General guidelines are:
 a.Hole depth should be 1/3 of the full fence height.
    i.An 1800mm high fence would be 600mm deep.
    ii.A 2000mm fence would be 666mm deep.
 b.Hole width should be 2/3 of the hole depth
    i.A 600mm deep hole would need to be 400mm wide
    ii.An 800mm deep hole would need to be
Step 3:Fill ~50mm of the hole with concrete before planting the posts to give the posts a base to rest on.
Step 4:Place your posts into the hole and brace them & level them using timber bracing clamped to the posts and driven into the ground.
Step 5:Once the concrete has cured, remove the bracing and you are ready to hang your panels
Step 6:Get someone to hold your first panel in place and line the holes on the panels up with the holes on the mounting tabs (a spacer underneath helps a lot here) and thread the first M8 bolt into one of the top holes then thread the nut on to the back. Do not tighten all the way.
Step 7:Put the second nut and bolt on the other top hole and do not tighten all the way.
Step 8:Install the rest of the nuts and bolts in the remaining holes without tightening all the way.
Step 9:Fully tighten all the nuts and bolts in a star pattern starting from one of the top corners.
Step 10:Repeat steps 6-9 to install the rest of your panels.

Please check with your local council as to how deep your posts need to be in the ground as it varies across NZ.

However, a good rule of thumb is the post should be buried at least 1/3 as deep as the fence is tall and the hole diameter should be at least 2/3 of the hole depth.
