The Octopost rails are treated in the exact same way as their posts are. The rail has a half octagonal profile therefore the completed fence is very pleasing to the eye.
The rails come in two lengths 3.5m and 4.2m and have a overlapping joint. This makes erecting the fence far simpler as the rail ends do not have to end on the post.
See below a drawing for a recommended system for using 3 rows of the 4.2m length rails and 2.1m posts. All Octowood recommended rail systems found below.
95mm x 4200mm (overall length once fitted 3.95 metres)
95mm x 3500mm (overall length once fitted 3.26 metres)
