FOUR THINGS to consider when buying a fence

Published on Tue, 05/10/2016 - 8:42am

1 FIT
Get it right the first time. Consider these things when choosing your fence: animal type, terrain, location, and stocking density. Each com- bination will lead you to different configurations and products so it's important to take the time to identify your specific requirements.

2 STRENGTH
Bigger isn't always better. Although smaller in diameter, lighter high-tensile fencing products actually exceed the breaking strength of heavier, larger diameter low-carbon fencing products.

3 LONGEVITY
Rusty fence — no thanks. Use Class 3 or Bezinal® coated wire to guarantee your fence will last up to 30 years. And don't forget — your accessory materials are just as important and should also be galvanized.

4 VALUE
Best bang for your buck. High tensile fences are stronger, longer-lasting, require less posts, install faster and easier, virtually eliminate maintenance, and cost less per foot than standard low-carbon fence. All this leads to a lower total cost of ownership saving you dollars in the long run.
