About product

If you are looking for stock fencing that will reduce both your labour and material costs then the Forge Knot is the wire of choice.

Our Forge Knot Sheep & Livestock fence is constructed using a 'forged knot’. This revolutionary knot fixes the vertical wire in place ensuring that it cannot be moved vertically or horizontally by livestock pressure, unlike most traditional hinge jointed wire netting which not only folds down but is susceptible to movement by livestock.

The Forge knot has a smooth finish that is abrasive free which will not damage hides, collect wool and can be used where public might be present reducing the risks of any cuts or abrasions associated with other knots.

The one piece vertical wire allows you to space intermediate stakes up to 5m apart. The forged knot provides a stiffstay netting that will virtually stand up on its own, which helps eliminate vertical wire movement by livestock. The tension curves and the spring like properties of high tensile wire remain taut throughout its life providing an effective, long lasting fence.
