Clipex Fencing FAQ
We have provided this Fencing FAQ to go through the most common questions we get asked regarding our Clipex Fencing.
Are Clipex Posts Grant Approved?
Yes. Clipex posts are grant approved both in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. For the Department
of Agriculture under TAMS and GLAS, for DAERA under bespoke fencing (*Permission must be sought from
DAERA before fencing)
What space should I leave between each post?
The spacing between the posts will vary depending on the type of fence you are constructing or the ground
conditions you are fencing. Generally whatever spacings you have used in the past with timber posts will be
suitable for Clipex.
How do you drive the Clipex Fencing posts?
How do you drive the posts?
Clipex posts can be driven similarly to timber posts. In smaller quantities you can manually drive with a
sledge, there is a protective drive tube which can be purchased off clipex. In larger quantities you can use a
post knocker or machine. (*Clipex posts have the added advantage of being able to be driven with a petrol
powered post driver. These can be hired or purchased from Clipex.
Are the fencing posts set in concrete?
No. In normal conditions there is no requirement to set Clipex posts in concrete. They are driven into the
ground similar to your traditional wooden posts
Can the Clipex Fencing posts take barb wire?
Yes, the clips in the Clipex posts can receive barb wire.
Can I buy the posts in my local merchant?
Yes. Clipex, in partnership with IITC, distributes a range of products into local Co-ops and Agri Merchants
How long will the posts last?
The posts are high tensile galvanised steel and have a 30 year guarantee
What length are the posts?
We stock a full range of posts from 1.5m length to 3.0m length for all your fencing needs
What do you use as strainers?
There are many variations of strainers available depending on type of fence and of course ground conditions.
Our strainer options are also constructed on galvanised steel for strength and longevity.
How do you insulate electric fencing?
There are special Clipex insulators which clip into the posts to allow the wire to be electrified.
Is there a special wire for your posts?
Clipex makes its own netting but also uses common brands to suit some posts. Please contact our team for
expert advice on the best Clipex product for your application.
My wire is good but my timber posts are starting to fail, do you have a post for me?
Yes, generally speaking we have a post to suit the most common wires on the market.
I have a netting that is not mentioned in your brochure. Will it fit your posts?
It is practically possible to accommodate all netting on Clipex posts. Where the horizontal wires of the netting
don’t match up with the clips on the posts the solution is to line wire the fence with 2.5mm HT wire and
attach the netting to the line wires, similar to how you would construct a chainlink fence. Your local contractor
should be able to offer you some advice on this.
Where are you based?

Do you deliver?
Yes. We use The Pallet Network and offer a delivery service nationwide
How do I pay for my order?
