Fence Calculator

With our calculator it is easy to determine what you will need for your fencing project. Make a quick sketch of the fence line. Measure and record the distances between each terminal post. Using the calculator select the height of the fence. Enter the quantity of each type of terminal post. (The number of line posts needed will be calculated for you.) Enter the lengths for each fence section. The calculator can handle up to 12 different fence sections.

The example fence below would have: 6 end posts, 4 corner posts, 1 bare post and fence sections of 10, 52, 32, 44, 52, 8, and 4 feet. Do not enter any lengths for the gates. You can also send your sketch to us and we will part out your fence for you.

The accuracy of the calculator is not guaranteed. It is intended only as a tool to help you part out your fence. The items listed cannot be put directly into a shopping cart. Jeften does not sell or ship any posts, panels or gates. We encourage you to get those locally and support your local economy. But then save money, and time, by getting the parts and accessories you need shipped directly to you.

Ornamental Iron Fence Installation Instructions

All fence posts should be set in concrete or foam. If you are using concrete be certain that the hole depth goes below the frost line for your area. The frost-line can vary from 0" to over five feet deep. If the concrete does not go below this point the post can be shoved up when the frost comes out of the ground in the spring. If you are using structural foam there is no need to go below the frost-line as foam is not affected by the spring thaw like concrete is. In either case be sure that your post is plumb and square. Let the concrete set up for at least three days. The foam will be ready in about an hour.

1. Set the posts a minimum of 21" deep and 93 3/4" O.C.(+/- 1/2").

2. We recommend feathering the last few panels in each line of fence if necessary.

3. Attach the panels to the posts with brackets (universals for ends/corners - line brackets for line posts).
