What you need to know when choosing rural fencing:
- The type of animal that is being kept in or out of a property
- Is the fence is an internal fence or boundary fence?
- The topography of the site
An internal fence is a smaller fence that may keep cattle, sheep or other animals in a small enclosure.
A boundary fence will enclose the boundary of the property and should be chosen to withstand floods if necessary and be able to be installed on flat areas, gullies and hillsides.
The strainer assembly is at the ends of a fence. Strainer assembly is important because it transfers tension from the wires to the ground. Diagonal stays hold some types of strainers in place and a box assembly is another way to keep strainer assemblies from leaning over under the pressure of the wires.
Intermediate posts can be placed at an appropriate distance depending on the size of the fence. They are needed to fix wire or timber to and prevent the fence from sagging.
Wire for boundary fences
Wire can come in prefabricated rolls, plain wire, woven wire or barbed wire. Barbed wire can be placed at the top of the fence, but sometimes is used on all of the wires.
Treated pine can be an inexpensive and effective type of boundary or internal fence, but the posts should be chosen for in-ground use.
Wires are usually strung using a multi-wire strainer, which will keep the wires an exact distance apart and they can easily be attached to posts. In addition, "grippies" should be installed periodically. Grippies will allow you to adjust the tension of the wires as they will become slack over time .
Rural fencing should only be installed by professional rural fencing supplier. Wear Fencing can help with this.
