Panoplax Panels, an Alternative to Rolled Meshes

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop and today we will talk about Panoplax panels, a valid alternative to traditional rolled meshes for fences. If you are looking for an economical yet effective solution, these panels might be right for you. Let's take a look at their technical characteristics and how they can be used.

Characteristics of the Panoplax System

The Panoplax system is made up of three main components: the panel, the post, and the fastening accessories. Let's analyze them one by one.

The Panel

The panel is made of welded mesh with a 50 x 200 mm mesh size. The wire diameter is 4 mm, a lightweight wire that offers good resistance. The panel undergoes a galvanization process with plastic coating available in green or anthracite colors, with no price variations. The standard dimensions of the panels are 2 meters in length, with heights of 103, 123, 153, 173, and 203 cm. A reduced version with a height of 63 cm is also available.

The Post

The posts have an octagonal section of 45 x 45 mm and a thickness of 1.2 mm. They are galvanized and plastic-coated, with a cap on the top part and a perforated plate for fastening at the bottom. The rectangular plate has two holes for 8 or 10 mm dowels.

Fastening Accessories

The accessory kit includes ten plastic collars, ten bolts, and caps to cover the bolt heads. These collars can slide along the height of the post, allowing for great versatility in installation.

Uses of Panoplax Panels

Panoplax panels are ideal for residential fences. They are not suitable for sports use or for security fences in public or industrial areas due to their lightness. We recommend using these panels to enclose gardens, courtyards, or other residential areas.

Installation of Panoplax Panels

The installation of Panoplax panels is relatively simple, with a difficulty level of 3 out of 5 when using dowels. If you opt for the cemented version, the difficulty level increases to 4 out of 5. We recommend mounting one panel and post at a time, anchoring them and leveling them as you proceed, rather than setting all posts first and then the panels.

Practical Tips
  • The panel tips, which can pose a danger to children, can be turned downwards for greater safety.
  • The fastening collars allow you to adjust the panel height and adapt to uneven terrains or steps.
  • To create corners, simply rotate the post 90 degrees and anchor the panel in the new direction.
  • If necessary, the panels can be cut with wire cutters or a disc grinder to fit the required dimensions.
Economic Considerations

Panoplax panels are an economical solution, costing a little more than half the price of 5 mm wire panels. However, it is important to consider that they must be shipped on a pallet to avoid damage during transport. Ensure you have a suitable vehicle for picking up or delivering the material.
