Fence Top Trellis
Our fencing panels are commonly customised by adding fence top trellis panels on the top of our handcrafted fence panels. The possibilities are endless as all our flat top panels can have trellis topper panels added.
Advantages of this include:
Adding height to the fence without reducing light
Making a fence more secure as its more difficult to climb (along with it being higher)
Trellis toppers make a run of fence panels look even more attractive
Trellis can give support to climbing plants
Popular combinations of trellis toppers and panelsIt depends on the style of panel that is used but 0.30m or 0.43m high trellis panels are most commonly used as trellis toppers, often used with a 1.52m or sometimes a 1.65m fence panel.
Remember that a gravel board needs to be included so, this will raise the height of the fence by another 150mm.
Common combinations often supplied to customers include:
Tongue and Groove Panel with Premier Square, Diamond or Lattice Topper panels
Tongue and Groove with Arch Top Trellis
Featherboard with Square Trellis
Chilham with Premier Square, Diamond or Lattice Topper panels (this has the advantage of looking good both sides)
We recommend using slotted Jakposts when adding trellis toppers to a fence, it makes the whole fencing run much more secure and stable and also easy to install. It also has the advantage that the panels can be secured to the posts with screws stopping people from easily lifting the panels out at the same time, holding the whole fence together.
