Building a Wood H-Brace

The strength of your fence comes from the braces, in this case a single wood H-brace. Whether you’re building a high tensile fence or a low carbon fence there will be a ton or more tension on the corner posts. They must be installed in such a way that they will resist this constant tension.

An H-brace is an assembly of three posts and bracing wire which creates a strong resistance to the lateral force of the fence. Braces may be single or double, however the width should ALWAYS be 2 ½ times the height of the fence.

In the video below #TheFencePros at Bekaert demonstrate the proper way to build a wood H-brace for your fence. We also have a video on building a pipe H-brace.

In addition to our videos we also have a detailed brace installation guide. If you still have questions on your fence installation do not hesitate to contact us directly.
