2.0mm High tensile is the latest generation of barbed wire to reach the agricultural market and fast becoming the barbed wire of choice for both contractors and farmers.
High tensile barbed wire is manufactured using heavily galvanised high tensile wire, it has four sharp points to create the barb spaced 100mm apart. Each roll comes on a strong wooden spool enabling safe handling and ease of unwinding.
Use high tensile barbed wire to complement the topping on high tensile stock netting. The tensile strength remains taut and puts up with livestock pressure, it also has the same properties as high tensile netting, allowing you to put intermediate stakes further apart, saving in materials and labour. Erecting at least one line 50mm above your netting will protect livestock putting any downward pressure on the netting. A second line 150mm above can be added, alternatively an electric on plain wire can be used to create an effective barrier.
Manufactured with two 2mm high tensile wires in reverse twist pattern.
