Palisade Fence Material Calculator

Pin It

Palisade fence is often used for projects that require a little more security. It's durable and hard wearing and the many different component configuration options make this a versatile fence option.

The palisade fence material calculator below will help you to calculate how much fence material you need for your project. It is based on a typical palisade specification using IPE or I beam posts, but you can adjust for square posts and brackets if you choose that instead. Panels are 3m or 10 feet wide, and each panel includes 17 pales. Again, if your specifications differ from this, adjust accordingly

Note that no slopes or gradients are accounted for.
