Timber Paling Fences

We  use hardwood posts for timber fencing, concreted in 600 deep.
Rails are generally 100 x 38 treated pine, or 75 x 38 hardwood, as required by customer.
There are 3 rails on any fence over 1200 high and 4 rails for fences over 2100 high.
Palings are 100 x 16 treated pine, or 100  x 16 treated hardwood, whatever you prefer.
Palings can also be 75 wide, in pine and hardwood.
Fences can be up to 2000 high without council approval.
Rails are fastened with galvanised batten screws and palings are fastened with galvanised ring shank nails, 6 per paling (2 on each rail). To use less than this might see the pine palings start to "cup" and bow over time.
The top of the fence is trimmed to give the fence that nice straight look.
The capping we use on capped fences is 100 x 50 with a chamfered edge. It looks a lot smarter than a plain fence rail.

Something different - instead of a paling on the lapped part it is a chamfered rail.
