Tree Protection - BS 5837

We can supply all the equipment necessary for you to conform to BS 5837 Tree Protection There is a simple formular which you can use as a guide to calculate the approximate quantities of equipment required to protect trees etc

Length of run in meters equals " a "

Formular:

" a " x 5.13m of Tube ( 16.83ft )
" a " x 0.66 Swivel Couplers
" a " x 1.00 Double Couplers
" a " x 0.45 Sleeve Couplers

You will also require some form of mesh panel, this can be either standard site panels, each panel being approx 3.6m long, or the use of reinforced mesh or chicken wire etc which is then wired into place.
An example for a protection fence 250m in length is under:

250 x 5.13 = 1282m Scaffold Tube
250 x 0.66 = 165 nos Swivel Couplers
250 x 1.00 = 250 nos Double Couplers
250 x 0.45 = 113 nos Sleeve Couplers

You will also require 69 nos Fence Panels c/w 2 clips each.

You will need to cut the tube to size on site, usually with a Stihl saw.

All prices for this equipment can be found in our 'Price List' menu.

To give you a rough idea standard tree protection works out at approx 28.00 per linear metre plus delivery and VAT ( based on Jan 2014 prices )
