How do I shorten the panels on a Pre-fabricated Ornamental Fence?

If the posts are set such that the panel is too long, you will have to cut the panel down to fit. 

  1. Measure inside to inside of bracket.  Not inside to inside of post.
  2. Deduct a ¼” from this dimension for expansion and slope.
  3. Subtract this dimension from the overall panel dimension.  The sum remaining is what we will have to cut-off of the panel. 
  4. Divide this sum evenly and cut from both sides of the panel to assure even picket spacings on the ends of the panel. 
  5. Measure from center of hole to end of panel on an existing panel.  Use these dimensions to field drill the cut-down panel for the bolts.buildingpre-fabricatedornamental-5.jpg
  6. Once you have completed your field cutting and drilling, use a manufacturer’s primer and paint to touch-up the cuts and holes to prevent corrosion.
