For other Nether-related topics, see Nether (Disambiguation).

Nether Brick Fences were added to the Nether as a part of Nether Fortresses. Nether brick fences cannot be set on fire, unlike their wooden counterparts.

Nether brick fences act in the same way as normal fences do, meaning that they look one block high when they are really 1.5 blocks high, so they cannot be jumped over by a player or mobs.

Occurrence[edit | edit source]

Nether brick fences are naturally found in a nether fortress where they form window bars and gate-like structures.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Nether brick fences do not connect to wooden fences when they are placed next to each other. They can, however, connect to Fence Gates just like wooden fences.
    • By alternating between nether brick fences and wooden fences, one can create a barrier that players and villagers can walk through while mobs are not able to do so.
  • It is impossible to place pressure plates on top of nether brick fences as one would with wooden fences.
  • Unlike wooden fences, 6 Nether Bricks can craft 6 nether brick fences whereas 2 sticks and 4 wood planks can only produce 3 wooden fences.
  • Unlike wooden fences, nether brick fences need a pickaxe to be mined and obtained.
  • Since they don't burn, nether brick fences can be used to contain lava.
