A very strong fine mesh pattern that can provide a virtually impenetrable barrier to otters, badgers, livestock and pedestrians. Watch our video in the media tab above to see just how strong it really is.
Xfence premium wire netting improves with age. At the sacrificial corrosive stage the X knot coating enables them to fuse and become tighter. This gives Xfence real rigidity and strength as it ages.

This product has been designed to protect inland fisheries and facilitate highway exclusion. This type of fence is produced to a very high specification, which makes it particularly suitable for the commercial and government sectors. If needed we are also able to make a hinged oversail which can be cranked outwards to hinder the otter from climbing the fence.
Shorter heights and lighter gauges, coupled with electric fencing can be more cost effective for private enterprises and are available.
The wire used in the production of Xfence has an improved coating which provides greater durability. Since the development of zinc/aluminium coated wire in 1984, various companies have used this coating to provide a longer life for their products. McVeigh Parker are also offering this XTRALIFE as standard in all their range of high tensile horse, stock and security Xfence fencing products.
XTRALIFE wire offers superior corrosion resistance which is ideally suited to industrial and coastal areas, lasting up to four times longer than heavily galvanised wire. The traditional galvanised coating can have the tendency to be brittle and crack when tying off, whereas the XTRALIFE zinc/alu mixture provides a more pliable wire and will not crack when the wire is twisted making it easier to erect.
The tensile strength and coating used in the manufacturing of Xfence make it the wire of choice with fencing contractors.
Due to unprecedented demand there may be longer lead times on some X fence products, you will be advised at time of enquiry or order.
