STEP METHOD

For steeper inclines, stepping the fence may prove to be an easier method of installation. Blank or end posts may be ordered, then routed or cut with jig saw in the field to fit.  Post spacing remains the same,- longer posts may be required depending on steepness of grade.


RACK METHOD

For shallower inclines, racking the fence allows installer to follow the grade with the fence rails. See the table at right for the maximum achievable rise on post centers for factory sections.      For greater rises, alteration of section will be required, such as using longer pickets, and (or) lengthening holes in posts.  Post centers may also have to be decreased depending on the severity of incline.
