This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
I love Numenor and Chrissy6930's Carina spotlight stairs and use them in literally every lot but it bugged me that I didn't have a matching fence for them so I sent Numenor a pm and asked his permission to extract the stair railing to make a matching fence. Numenor kindly gave me the required permission to make the fence and also to share it here on MTS.

Terms of use for the stairs are as per Numenor's and Chrissy6930's policies. Please read their policies and respect them. I take no credit whatsoever for the mesh, all I have done is extract the stair railings from Chrissy6930's stair mesh and rejig them to make a fence. Full credit for the mesh goes to Chrissy6930 .

If you have Chrissy6930's recolours for the stairs available in the original stairs thread here I have also done a set of matching fences for the recolours.

All fences have unique GUID's and should not conflict with other downloads. The stairs are not included with this download, please follow the link to get them.

My apologies that the images are not the best. I have an integral graphics card which is not very good and even with the graphics set high the pictures are a bit rubbish. Until I can buy a new graphics card I cannot improve them - sorry.

As with all fences they require 1 EP to work. They were made with uni, NL & OFB installed.

Separate wood and metal subsets so if you want to do a different metal texture with a particular wooden texture that is possible.

Polygon Counts:
Poly Count:

Diagonal railings - 556 polys;
Straight railings - 370 polys;
Fence posts - 166 polys.

Additional Credits:
Chrissy6930 for the stair mesh

Numenor for the stairs and for granting permission to make the matching fence.

All those involved in the creation of SimPE, without whom custom content would not be possible.

gayle_afcb for the meshing tutorials.

This is a multi-part download:

1 zip contains fence to just match the carina spotlight stairs. The zip labelled recolours match Chrissy6930's recolours of the stairs. All fences work independant of each other.
