The Anatomy of an H Brace – Part 1

A fence is only as strong as its bracing. Period.

High tensile fencing is a strong material in its own right. It’s only appropriate that it requires rigid bracing to match its strength. Bracing is the backbone which supports the rest of the fence. The braces used when constructing high tensile fence are called “H braces,” due to their shape containing two vertical posts and a horizontal post spanning the gap between them. These H braces are used at fence corners, extreme changes in direction, terminations at gate openings, and other unique situations. This blog will help hone your ability to build hardy H braces.
