Adjusting the size of a tonkin fence roll
- A big advantage of bamboo is that it is easy to work with. You can simply adjust the width of a tonkin fence roll by cutting the galvanized steel wires at the desired width.
- To adjust the height of the fence you can trim the bamboo sticks with a fine teeth saw blade.
Installing tonkin fencing rolls
Try to leave a minimal 2 cm space between a bamboo fence and the ground to avoid direct contact with wet soil as this might cause black stains over time. You could rest the fencing roll on a wooden plank while installing to fence.
- Secure the galvanized wires with nails to install a tonkin fence roll against an existing wall or wooden fence. Do not fasten the bamboo sticks with nails as this will cause splitting.
- Installing a bamboo fence roll against a chain link fence is achieved by using tie wraps or wire ties. Wrap the wire ties around the galvanized steel wire that runs through the bamboo poles and tighten them to the metal fence.
General properties of bamboo and maintenance tips
- Each tonkin stick is unique, therefore color differences in a fence roll are possible.
- The diameter of each cane in a tonkin fence roll may vary slightly.
- Vertical cracks can occur in tonkin canes. Just like wood, bamboo expands or shrinks when temperature or humidity conditions change. Cracks, however, have no effect on the structural integrity of a bamboo fence.
- Bamboo used in outdoor conditions will weather over time. We advice to treat bamboo fencing on an annual basis with Bamboo Protector, a specially developed UV-resistant transparent sealer that preserves the natural color of bamboo.
