Snow fence of rot-resistant polyethylene fabric with integrated installation poles of glass fibre-reinforced polyester (flexible). The fabric is additionally reinforced with polypropylene along its length. The poles are fitted with polyamide cover caps and two eyelets for anchoring the guy ropes. Delivery includes 18 ground sleeves of impact-resistant GRP, 36 steel ground anchors and 18 guy ropes for tensioning at top and bottom.
If desired, the snow fence can be delivered with additional supporting discs (Ø 170 mm) for the ground sleeves. By increasing the support surface, the discs prevent the fence from sinking into very soft ground. The ground sleeves are then simply inserted through the discs so that the latter stabilise the standing structure like a flat washer.
Its low net weight makes the snow fence easy to transport and to handle. It can therefore be put up and dismantled quickly and efficiently. As the installation poles are already firmly connected to the fabric and these are simply inserted into the ground sleeves, the fence can also be moved quickly. The unique structure of the mesh creates optimal snowdrift. The fabric and the poles are rot-resistant and their weather-resistance and UV stability make them suitable for many years of outdoor use.
Snow fences save lives. In mountainous regions like the Alps or the Central German Uplands, snow fences are deployed to combat hazardous snowdrifts. When installed correctly, they minimise the dangers which can be posed by drifts of powder snow on roads, rail tracks or private plots of land.
Snow fences are always deployed in places where large open areas without natural vegetation are unable to offer any protection against wind. When it snows in winter, a fence is mounted around this area to prevent the formation of snowdrifts, which could otherwise accumulate on roads or rail tracks. There, they freeze and can cause serious accidents in conditions of poor visibility. They can trigger avalanches on sloping terrain. A snow fence or snow guard is an attempt to check these freaks of nature.
Besides the protective aspect, the use of snow fences has many additional advantages. Thanks to their rapid installation and low weight, they allow, for example, road maintenance staff or land owners to be mobile, able to quickly move the nets elsewhere if need be. The snow fences from the Safetynet365 shop are made of a polyethylene fabric, and consist of the snow net and integrated flexible glass-fibre-reinforced polyester mounting poles. Due to the structure of these materials, the fence cannot rot. The special mesh openings of the 50-meter-long fence units ensure optimal blocking and snowdrift formation. Choose the standard ground sleeves for firm and medium-firm ground or the model with additional support discs for softer ground, in order to safely anchor your snow net.
Several snow fences should always be positioned staggered/offset in relation to one another, to allow continued deer crossing. However, always leave the installation of snow fences to professionals. If they are installed incorrectly, the fences are practically ineffective or can even increase the impact of the snowdrifts. When installed correctly, your one-time purchase will give many years of service. On the bottom of our products, you always find installation guidelines for each individual snow fence.
1. Unroll the fence
2. Drive in the ground sleeves (before driving them in, tighten each section individually)
3. Mount the caps with the tensioning ropes onto the posts
4. Drive in the ground anchors and brace the fence with the top and bottom ropes
Caution: Drive in the ground anchors as far as possible to their full length and pretension and/or tension them. Do not forget to tension the structure at the bottom.
To present as small a surface to the wind as possible, and to enable deer crossing, individual 50-metre fences should be positioned staggered in relation to one another.
