Why Off-Post Rails

The traditional Fornells In-Post style ensures very heavy-duty fencing but when there is an ultimate safety and low-injury requirement such as areas for mounting, riding and training horses, or areas where people or crowds stand close to the fences, or just in the case of high-value nervous horses, the Fornells Off-Post Rail avoids all contact between the actual posts and their edges, the railing remains smooth and continuous just as on a Racetrack. Our Racetrack experience has allowed us to incorporate the most stringent criteria into the design and testing of our Post and Rail fencing. Our Off-Post Rail system utilises the world renowned Reinforced Running Rail fixed off the post on 2 or 3 or 4 or even 5 levels! This Off-Post unique design:

- DOUBLES the mechanical resistance and toughness of the fence;
- Provides a continous rail without post edges
- Preserves the flexibility of the plastic “bumper” effect.

According to specific requirements, our engineers are available to advise on the right components (Post height, number of Rails, type of Ground footing and installation), the overall layouts with turns, corners, gradients, steps, and the necessary openings and gates.

Please contact our engineers for design and layout services.
