FOUR THINGS to consider when buying a fence

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
