For more details, we recommend that you download the installation guide.
Brackets aid in the effectiveness of the Oscillot® System by bringing the paddles away from the fence a few centimetres. Brackets are often used with these fence types:
- Post and Rail Fencing with a horizontal rail within 400mm of the top of the fence
- Vertical Paling Timber Fencing
- Horizontal Paling Timber Fencing
- Brush Fencing
TIP: You can position your brackets in many different ways. Experiment to find which way is most suitable for your particular fence type.
