How to install the fence dropper/batten

The battens/droppers should be installed by interweaving down through the wires. They are extremely strong and designed to flex and absorb impact from animals, they will not break.


A taper lock system stops the batten/dropper from being moved along the fence by stock.

At the bottom of each batten/dropper is a hole. This feature is used for pulling the batten/dropper down into slight undulations or to provide extra security against animal pressure if required.

Application of Ribbon Tape Onto Outriggers

The outriggers can be mounted directly to wooden railings or posts with staples or screws, or simply attach to the Styx fence dropper/batten without tools or fasteners.

The outriggers are designed for easy application of tape which will not move out of the outrigger or spiral in windy conditions.
