How will I transport & store galvanized fence panels?

At SONCO, we know space is limited, and poor transit methods damage panels and cost you money. To help rental affiliates haul temp fencing and maximize storage space, we created the popular steel Sollage rack. This weather-resistant storage and transport solution is available as a stand-alone product or with SONCO’s 30-panel truckload bundle.

These stackable storage devices secure panels for transport while minimizing transit-related damage. No more mangled and damaged fencing or panels lost on the highway! Sollage racks also help you clean up your yard since they store panels in a compact footprint.

How much storage space do I need for a truckload of fence panels?

Store one truckload of fencing inside a 380-square-foot stockyard or warehouse. Tight on storage? Take advantage of vertical space. Double stack our popular Sollage racks using a forklift, and reduce needed space to 190 square feet.

Do I need a big crew to install customer fencing?

No! Leverage your current team and build a fence line in a few hours — with just two employees! Check the table below for average crew sizes and installation times, which vary by project. Contact SONCO with specific installation questions.

To expedite fence installation, reallocate employees from other business areas or use forklifts to lighten the workload. Forklifts aren’t essential to chain-link deployment, but they substantially boost labor efficiency. Plus, forklifts minimize injuries to fatigued crew members!
