Concrete gravel boards are a long term cost effect method of improving the longevity of your fence panels. Easy to install, concrete gravel boards raise your fence panels off the ground, helping to reduce the risk of moisture damage such as rot and decay that would otherwise be caused by damp or wet ground.
Concrete gravel boards can be used with both slotted concrete fence posts (by simply slotting them into place), and with traditional wooden fence posts with the addition of gravel board brackets. As well as protecting your fence panels, concrete gravel boards add overall rigidity to your fence and help hold your fence panels in place.

We offer this variant in two different lengths (2.4m and 3m) dependant on post spacing. This item can be bolted to recessed concrete fence posts by way of a carriage bolt or can be screwed to timber posts.
Concrete Gravel Board Installation
Once your first concrete fence post has been erected and is set in place, ensure that the area you are fencing is level and measure the distance of your gravel board and dig a hole where you need to install your second fence post. Place your concrete gravel board in the grove of the first fence post.
Once in place install your fence panel on top of the concrete gravel board and in the grove of the fence post. Erect your second fence post ensuring the fence panel and gravel board fit in the posts slot. Repeat until you have completed your fencing project.
