Fencing Contractors Near Me in Delaware
Contrary to myth, solid fencing does not provide the best wind break. The force of the wind on the solid flat surface creates both pressure on the windward side and pressure differences on the leeward side, somewhat similar to the way an airfoil works.
To illustrate this, note that snow fences are designed with porosity, allowing some of the wind to work its way through, yet decreasing and deflecting the air flow. As a consequence of the design, snow will tend to accumulate a few feet in front of the fence, as the vortices of wind redirect.
When designing a wood fence as a wind break, stagger the boards 2 inches apart for every six inches of width. The ideal porosity for windbreak fences is 25-33%, and such a gap will give a 25% porosity. This provides a protection that will extend eight to ten times the height of the fence. Another option is to slope the fencing material, if you are intending to use the fence as a shelter for livestock.
