The calculator below is provided as a tool to select the least-cost anchors to meet the force requirements for a fence.
- The critical dimension for the plate hole spacing is D. That is the spacing in the direction perpendicular to the direction of the fence.
- Increasing the size D of the plate can save significant costs by reducing the number of anchors required per post
- The minimum distance d1 between any two holes is 2"
- If possible, install the post so that the longer spacing between bolts is perpendicular to the fence.
- Asphalt Anchors assumes no liability for the suitability of the calculations to your actual needs.
- The calculated output table below presents 1-4 rows, each with a possible solution listing the type of anchor and the required quantity for one post.
- The costs shown in the output table do not reflect volume discounts.
- The maximum wind information is readily available on the internet by searching for "maximum winds xxxxx" with xxxxx being your zip code.
- The calculations include resistance to a person climbing the fence.
