Snake Rail Fencing

The Snake Rail Fencing zigzags each section and the rail ends overlap recreating the look of early forms of fencing as seen in American historical photographs and paintings. The eleven foot long rails are the same as our regular split rail with the ends taper cut, except that we also offer the rails without the taper cut ends. Most installations have a finished height between 30 and 45 inches (6-9 rails high) and since the ends overlap and the sections zigzag, each 11 foot section typically covers an estimated 7 feet of run.  To add stability, particularly for taller fences or if people may climb or sit on the fence, a post or angle bracing can be used at each junction or just fasten each successive rail to the lower rail with a screw.

Made from Southern Yellow Pine posts and treated with ACQ or MCA for years of life so as the rails age and grey, they will take you back in time resembling the look of the Early American fence.
