    I can't comment on building codes in your area. You will have to measure the panels that you find in your area to see if they fit your local codes.

    @printergirl2- - "a 4" diameter ball cannot pass through"
    A 4" ball cannot pass through standard vertical spindles with a space of 3-15/16 between them and no minimum dimention in the 'other' direction. The less than 4" dimension only needs to be in ONE of the directions to prevent a 4" ball from going through.

    You are both right, whomever is going to use hog panels for railings needs to check with their local building codes for the correct grid spacing per code.

    We are looking for the 4"x4" hog wire for our deck. Can you tell us where we can buy this material please?

  • felizlady
    I would try a farm supply or fencing dealer. Hog wire is frequently used for fencing, stapled to sturdy posts.

    Who makes the railing system and fencing on this deck. I'm redoing a deck in RI to bring it up to code on a 70's house and I'm having a hard time finding something this simple. My builder wants me to use the cable wire system and I've shown him this photo but...it looks like these are something he could custom make...a panel set into the frame...thanks

    Welded Wire mesh is used in the fencing. You could visit our profile or visit the website to have a look http://www.qualitywire.com.bh/welded_wire_mesh.html

    What is the mesh / grid wire called and where can I get it? I'm in California, so may have to order online or go to a local feed supply? Does it rust? Anything I should know about what type of wire to get to avoid maintenance/rust? Thank you! Xoxoxo love the look!

    The mesh comes in panels of varying sizes, like 36"x96" or 48"x144" and other sizes. The steel is galvanized, so it shouldn't rust and will not need upkeep. We call it "cattle panel" or "hog panel" here in Texas. You should be able to get it at a farm & ranch store in your area, or maybe a lumberyard.

    We're in Minnesota, I found a nice selection of galvanized stock panels*** at Tractor Supply, I know they have many locations in the US, not sure about Ontario, check their website. Possibly a local farm supplier could order it for you. McNichols has beautiful stuff, but way out of our budget. ***the different panel names (goat, horse, sheep, hog, utility) you'll see on various blogs and forums indicate the size and shape of the wire grid pattern depending on what type of livestock the panel is intended for.

    what is the grid size shown in this photo?

2. If you already have a deck, you may need to refinish it. Wood decks are great, but without proper maintenance, they can lose their appeal sooner than they should. It’s recommended that you refinish your wood deck every year or two. Here’s what to know.Full story: See how to refinish a wood deck

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The ‘Disappearing’ GuardrailJun 9, 2014

The RulesIt helps to know the parameters that regulate guards so we can artfully incorporate them into our designs. Your local codes may be more stringent, but as a general guideline the national code that regulates guards is the Life Safety Code (NFPA 101), and it prescribes that for any change in height between adjacent surfaces of 30 inches or greater, you’re required to use a guard. If your deck is more than 30 inches off the ground, chances are that you’ll need a guard at the edge for safety. Guards are different than handrails in two key respects: First, they’re taller, at 42 inches high; and second, they’re required to have intermediate members that must be spaced such that a 4-inch sphere can’t pass between them. This apparently equates to something smaller than what the average child can fit through, and it guards against dangerous falls. There are also other, more specific, load requirements (such as it must resist a 200-pound concentrated load), but these are our primary concerns.

Who to hire: This is an easy project that you can handle yourself. If you’d prefer not to spend a weekend working on your deck, you can hire a contractor who does deck restoration.Cost: That depends on the size of your deck, the level of soil and the type of wood. If you need to rent a power washer, that will likely set you back between $40 and $200, depending on how long it takes to clean your deck. The brushes, sealant, stain and other materials will probably cost about $150. If you hire a contractor, expect to spend between $500 and $700 for an average-size deck.Typical project length: After cleaning the deck, you’ll need to let it dry for 48 hours, so expect to spend about three days on this project including drying time.Best time to do this project: During a sunny, dry period in late spring.

The Home Editor: City & Small Space Consulting added this to Rocking Chairs Roll Onto PorchesApr 18, 2012

The owners of this small modern home were so sensitive to its surroundings that the deck was built around a tree on the site. While the budget for the home was tight, the owners sprung for two Eames rockers — a worthy investment.
