Tension Fence

This fence was designed and built to provide privacy and security for an industrial lot in Southtown, San Antonio. Using railroad ties as posts, panels of hogwire and metal mesh were strung up on both the interior and exterior sides of the fence, tied together with cable, and in-filled with black lava rock. This provides the look of a traditional “gabion”-style fence, with much less mass.  Photography by Bailey Porter.
