What is Wooden Snow Fence?

Wooden snow fence is constructed from aspen and spruce wood lath that is woven together with 13-gauge galvanized wire. This durable construction ensures our snow fence withstands the elements. Traditional wood snow fencing is most commonly used to prevent snow from drifting onto highways and airport runways where drifting snow can pose a threat to safety and where snow removal can be very inefficient and expensive. By installing these fences along roads and runways, snow removal efforts become more efficient, allowing travel to flow smoothly and safely. And, its sturdy construction makes our natural wood snow fence a durable and economical alternative to plastic snow fence. Traditional snow fencing is also widely used in farming and other agricultural settings to aid in water collection and retention.

How snow fencing works is simple. A properly constructed snow fence will cause snow to drift down wind of it. An eddy will form behind the fence whenever the wind passes over it, causing a rolling wind current that flows downward and to the back side of the fence. This formation will cause fast and slow places to develop in the wind which makes a drift form in front of the fence on the windward side. A well designed snow fence can both prevent snow from drifting where it is not wanted and retain snow where it is desired.

Not limited to wooden snow control, snow fencing is also used as utility fence in a variety of different applications and settings that include:

Crowd Control
Wooden snow fence provides an effective and inexpensive solution for crowd control at major events. Because of its flexibility, it can be both easily erected and quickly removed from large areas.

Construction Site Fencing
This versatile snow fence can be used to prevent unwanted encroachment around the perimeter of the site.

Temporary Barrier Fencing
Snow fence provides an effective temporary barrier around land parcels, retention basins and ski trails.

Dog Fencing
Snow fence is a low cost solution for dog fence and dog runs. We sell tons of our snow fence for dog shows and events where the fence continues to be used year after year.
