Tree Protection - BS 5837

We can supply all the equipment necessary for you to conform to BS 5837 Tree Protection

Please Note: Some sketches of BS 5837 show a mid-rail/tube, this will only be required if using weld mesh for the fence, if using standard Herras type site panels the mid rail is not necessary, although most council planning/tree protection officers will insist on it.
There is a simple formula which you can use as a guide to calculate the approximate quantities of equipment required for BS 5837 tree protection.etc

Tree Protection including a mid-rail.

Length of run in meters equals " a "


" 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. It is not usual to have three horizontal tubes, two will be sufficient for use with standard site fence panels, however, as stated above some site will insist on the midrail.
An example for a protection fence 250m in length with a midrail 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. Extra Double Couplers are included to enable going around tree groups etc.

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