Classic Split Rail

Download Classic Split Rail Fence Brochure

Classic Split Rail posts are made from a mixed hard pine, dried and treated for in ground use and are available in two or three rail fence systems. The Classic Split Rail post is a sawn 3×6″ dimension that has a rough sawn surface for its finished appearance and has oval holes to accept the rails.

Classic Split Rail post rail spacing starts 6 inches from the top and then holes are spaced every 16 inches. Both Classic and Appalachian styles use the same 11 foot sawn and paddled fence rail that is pressure treated with a wood preservative to protect it from decay and termite damage. Our end posts are cut over size, especially designed to handle a typical metal farm gate. Rails used in both the Classic and Appalachian styles are manufactured from either high quality Poplar or Pine logs. Each rail is sawn, hand graded and the ends are paddled to produce a quality fence rail that will give many years of durable service. Rails are 11 feet long and have an average center diameter of 14 inches. All of our rails are pressure treated with a wood preservative to the above ground use specifications adding to the years of dependable service life.

Installation – A typical fence section of either the Classic or Appalachian style of Split Rail Fence is 10 linear feet. It is always best to start in a corner or end with holes 24 to 30 inches deep, every 10 feet, interlocking the rails with the posts as you progress down the fence line. Back filling with gravel is preferred to concrete.
