Maintenance of a Jackal Fencing Manufactured Product

The best way to ensure the longevity of your new Jackal Manufactured product is to consider its location. Installing your new Jackal fencing closer than 1500 metres from a marine location, where it will come in contact with harmful chemicals or exposing it to adverse loads will void the Manufacturer’s Warranty.

Establish a regular routine (with a log of dates kept) for washing your new Jackal Fence. Warm soapy water and a soft brush or rag is all that is required to keep it looking its best. Once clean, a rinse with fresh water to remove any soap will leave your Jackal Fence sparkling. Any products from other suppliers should be maintained in accordance with the supplier’s recommendations for that product.

If you live in a normal rural or suburban area the process should take place every 6 months. If located in a coastal or high pollution area it is suggested you perform the above maintenance every 1-2 months.
