Ratio Fencing GWR Spear type cat. no.245
« on: May 26, 2019, 06:50:46 PM »
I have just received a pack of this black plastic fencing which in the Peco catalogue is described as 700mm. long. The pack contains 4 lengths totalling 484mm. and I therefore need to cut and join some pieces together.
Has anyone used this product and if so what is the best adhesive for a solid joint?

Others, including the Peco website, say 700mm as well.

Product update but no catalogue update?

Hi Mojo,
I have used this fencing on my layout and used superglue. I cut off the post at the end of the section and glue the two small spigots of the horizontal rail to the post of the other panel. This was all done in situ to avoid over-handling, won't be the strongest of joints but avoids having two posts joined together (which would be a strong joint) and then the need to disguise the twin posts with foliage. The joints have been strong enough to withstand painting.

An Update.
I phoned Peco for advice on how to join up the pieces of fencing and they approved Plastic Weld such as Mek Pak.
They also have updated their website to show the product length as 484 mm. and sent me a complimentary free pack.
