It is important to
note here that Equi-Tee manufactures and markets only one component of the "Equi-fence" system,
adapter. Because of the high cost of freight, it is not economical for
us to sell you the top rails, t-posts and non-climb wire. These components
will need to be acquired locally, however; many companies will supply you with a
nearby dealer address. A quick estimate of the cost of a fence is approximately
$4.50 per lineal foot
including all the necessary pieces, some of which you will need to
source yourself Our portion, the adapter, costs
.99/lf, so include that with the price of your other supplies to get an accurate estimate of materials in your area.
Q. Please help me calculate
the cost to fence a one acre pasture?
*Note: This estimate assumes a cost of
$1.20 per lineal foot
for virgin PVC rails, $1.20/lf for 2X4 non-climb wire and $3.80
per 6' heavy duty T-post (.47/lf). Heavy duty posts must
weight at least 1.33 pounds per foot. Contact your local
dealer for more accurate prices.
We get asked this
question many times. We can only give an example of an estimate
because it is not possible to answer without knowing the length of the
sides of the fence.
For example, if you have one acre (44,000 sq/ft) that was 210x210, you would have 840
lineal feet of fence, but of it were 4400x10 you would 8820 lineal
feet of fence. A two acre parcels doesn't take twice the
fencing as a one acre piece either. For example, 840 feet will do one acre, but it only takes 1680 feet
to do four acres (420 x 420), and 2640 feet (half a mile) to do 10 acres, or 264 feet per acre.
if you have a huge plot, don't be scared off by the numbers
because the amount per acre goes down dramatically.
For comparison purposes we are going to use a square acre, whose
outside dimension is 840 feet. A complete "Equi-Fence" should run about
$4.50* a foot or $3780.00 for materials.
Two acres (88,000 sq/ft) is 1186 feet around, or about $4744.00 for
materials. Note that materials can run up to $1.00 per foot higher depending on availability where you live.
manufacture the Equi-Tee adapter, and cannot give a more accurate estimate
this since we cannot guarantee the cost on the items (Vinyl rails, non-climb, t-posts, anchor posts and concrete) that we
Even at the higher estimate you are building a fence
that has exceptional strength, visibility and safety for less than any
other permanent fencing option, and you can install it yourself!
