Do they work well with T posts? I was thinking 3 T posts per panel making the span between posts of 5.33 feet. One at the joints between panels and three in the field of the panel.
Not looking to build something totally permanent for this and thought this would be a good cheap alternative. Just not sure if the panels that TSC sells are the standard 4 gauge you would expect. No info on their website and the store is too far from me to just stop by and browse them.
I believe you will be happy with it, I found they are the cheapest , easiest way to put up a durable temporary fence.. I say temp lightly, I have put them up for temp fences and they are still satnding after 15 yrs,, as far as the t posts they work excellant with them, even the clips they give you with teh posts work good, 3 per section is wise as well, that what mine are,,
as far as corners and openeings you may want to put in wooden posts, but I have used them for openenings but feel the wooden are better ,,
I have never had anything go thru one, unless I skimped on fastners,, I did have a black jersey yr old go over one section, bent it , but it bent back easy enough,,
the post go in and out easy too, and can be reused, if you pull them with a loader of 3 point,, and get the red post pounder that slides over the post a few hits and down she goes, even breaks thru slaty rocks, good luck,pat
