Tough plastic sheets used to temporarily exclude, or contain, newts, frogs, snakes and small wildlife.

Ecofender™ Temporary/Semi-Permanent Newt Fences

Ecofender™ Temporary/Semi Permanent Newt Fences are tough plastic sheets used to temporarily exclude, or contain, newts, frogs,snakes and small wildlife - protecting them from entering hazardous areas (such as construction sites) - and conform to the CIRIA “Wildlife Fencing Design Guide” and English Nature “Great Crested Newt Mitigation Guidelines” criteria.

Hy-Tex Ecofender™ Newt Barriers sheets can be fixed to a simple post and rail timber fence, and the bottom edge entrenched to provide an impenetrable barrier. While the smooth surfaces are difficult for reptiles and amphibians to climb. The tough, 1000 gauge, UV stabilised, green or clear polythene “Standard” grade is designed to resist weather damage - providing reliable protection throughout the works. A “Heavy-Duty” 2000 gauge reinforced grade is available for more demanding applications (such as exposed sites) or for prolonged protection; while a “Woven” grade is available for windy and/or budget solutions.
