Installation of the amphibian fence

Type A

Amphibian protection fence with chain links for attachment to an existing mesh or veterinary fence. The amphibian fence fabric is getting entrenched approx. 10 cm into the soil and thus approx. 50 cm visible over the ground.

Type B

Amphibian protection fence just like type A, however, with additional metal posts and longitudinal tensioning ropes for installation on open field. The amphibian fence fabric is getting entrenched approx. 10 cm into the soil and thus approx. 50 cm visible over the ground. A button strip with integrated button holes in distance of max. 10 cm serves for the easy-going and time-saving installation of the fence at the tensioning rope. A 2 mm strong, slightly retensionable steel rope holds the fence tightly tense. Hot-dip galvanized steel posts with attachment rings for the longitudinal tensioning rope are struck in distance of alternatively 2 - 5 m deeply into the ground and grant safe grip of the amphibian protection fence. Optionally the amphibian protection fence is available with an exceeding protection.

The special polyethylene fabric of the amphibian protection fence is:

  • Non-transparent
  • UV-stabilized
  • Tear-resistant
  • Water-repellent
  • Resistant to salt water, frost, acid and alkalis
  • The fabric let pass the wind, but not the amphibians

Experience has shown that the amphibian protection fence is best dug into the soil approx. 10 cm instead of simply attaching it to the ground by nails at short intervals, because the amphibians try to dig their way under the amphibian protection fence.
