Barbed wire is a highly effective stock fencing product that is installed to the top of your fencing run as added protection against predators and animal escape. At AVS we have available both the mild steel barbed wire and the high tensile barbed wire in coils of 200m.
Our agricultural barbed wire fencing is produced to the British Standard and many of our customers use this product around their paddocks. The economical high tensile variety has a thinner twisted wire design to increase strength and is generally stronger than the thicker mild steel barbed wire. Ideal for longer runs, the barbed wire can prevent cattle leaning on it and pulling down the fence.
Installing your barbed wire fencing is very simple. It can be stapled to a timber post or can be tied and tightened using eye-bolts with concrete posts. You can also install your barbed wire using a strained method with ferrule winders on angle iron.
When installing barbed wire fence on rolling ground, where hills are too high to sight from one end post to the next, surveying equipment can be used to establish the location of intermediate points on the line. Alternatively, intermediate sighting stakes can be driven at the tops of hills. Two of these stakes should be driven about 8 to 10 feet apart at the approximate position where the line of your barbed wire fencing will cross the crest of the hill.
High-tensile barbed wire fence is an effective barrier for controlling and protecting livestock. Some advantages of this type of fence include ease of handling, minimal maintenance, and high strength. High-tensile wire fence can be easily electrified and will outlast most other fences.
