Standard Specifications

For Rail Fence (Conforms to ASTM F964)

Fence Rails

TxW: 1 1/2 x 5 1/2″; 2″ x 6″, 2 7/8″round
Length: 16′

Fence Posts
TxW: 5″ x 5″; 5″ O.D. round
Length: 6′,7′,8′

Fence Post Cap (Deep flange cap or internal flange cap.)
TxW: 5″ x 5″; 5″ O.D. round

Fence Post Bracket

TxW: 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″; 2″ x 6″

These standard measurements apply to both 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ rails and 2″ x 6″ rails.

*On all Country Estate® rail fencing, the top rail is mounted 2″ from the top of the post.

*On two-rail and three-rail fencing, there is 11 inches between rails.

*On four-rail fencing, there is 9 inches between rails.
