Frequently Asked Questions:
How is this different than regular hog panels?
Wild Hog Railing is specifically designed for residential and commercial use. It uses a steel that's roughly 50% thicker, it's double powder coated to prevent rust, is entirely woven and welded, and is pre-designed in appropriate sizes. All of these factors make Wild Hog sturdier, longer lasting, more visually appealing, and easier to install.
How much does it cost?
Wild Hog retails for less than $10 per lineal foot, dramatically lower than competing cable and glass railing. Wild Hog also installs extremely fast, lowering your overall installation cost.
How big are the open spaces? Does this leave a open site line?
The mesh is a 4" x 4" grid that meets all current ICC and IRC code. The 6 gauge metal is thin enough to leave a clean and open site line.
What type of decking can I use with Wild Hog?
It pairs best with Cedar and treated, but can be used with Hardwood, composites and PVC decking. As long as you're using wood posts, Wild Hog can be easily used.
Can I use this for fencing or other applications?
Yes, absolutely! One of the great things about Wild Hog is the versatility. It can be used for fencing, gardens, trellises, interior railing, hanging racks, and much more.
