Recycle Center 2
Recycling Center Electrified Security Fence Project #2
We did a number of electrified perimeter security arrays for recycling centers this past year. In this one we used railroad tracks for the corner posts because they had a large quantity available, and 4″ x 14 ft. steel posts cost $350 each. The customer elected to cut the rails to 16-18 ft.
In the following videos you’ll see that we tried to just push them into the ground, a trick that worked with black soil. In this case, however, the ground was hard yellow clay, and we couldn’t push the poles more than a couple feet into the ground.
In the end we rented a Bobcat with a 6″ x 8′ auger, and dug holes for the posts.
