High Tensile Stock Fencing
High Tensile stock fencing
Farmers know that effective grassland management requires strong and reliable fencing that will last for decades. Modern fencing solutions use high tensile wire that can be strained tighter than mild steel. There are numerous benefits to using high tensile wire, which include:
- It does not stretch with weathering, so does not need to be retightened annually
- Half as many posts are required
- It is quicker to erect
While high tensile stock fencing certainly requires different techniques to erect than mild steel, it is no more difficult. Most farms nowadays have access to a post driver that can easily knock in strainers to the required depth. Bending and tying off is simple when using the correct technique.
The total number of people working on farms has halved since the 1970s meaning there is less time available for regular maintenance jobs, such as tightening stock fences. Tornado High Tensile Fencing stays tight and does not stretch like mild steel, leaving you with one less job on your list!
It is a common misconception that a mild steel stock fence will cost less than high tensile. High tensile mesh rolls may be more expensive to buy, but this is more than compensated for by the reduced numbers of posts and labour required.
