Ripple Iron:


This name is usually given to a fence clad with a small profile corrugated metal sheeting fixed to the basic paling/picket style frame and finished with a painted plinth and fence capping. In some applications standard corrugated roofing iron is also to great effect. We also look to using the Lysaght Miniscreen in fill sheet.

It should be noted that when fixing either style of sheets to the fence rails and nails are driven through bottom of the corrugation – the part touching the rails – and not the top of the corrugated as in the case of the roofing sheets. On a sloping site the best effect is achieved when the corrugations are vertical, even if this means cutting top and bottom of the sheets to follow the line of the plinth and capping. If the slope is excessive, a stepped fence line would be the better approach.
