Ever since the conception of the X knot in 2006, the X fence brand has been proven worldwide. This premium wire netting offers great advantages in simple erection, strength and longevity. The smooth, unobtrusive, cold-forged X knot joint and one piece vertical wires provide a long lasting, binding joint. X fence leads the way for ease and speed of construction, out-performing other types of fencing.
Only the finest high-grade iron ore is used in the manufacture of the original X fence. The wire comes from a world-leading processing plant and is then twice coated with Xtralife Zinc/Aluminium in a gas wipe process that ensures a smooth even spread and industry leading corrosion resistance. X fence has a 24% stronger forged X knot and can have 3 times longer life than standard zinc coated wire. We believe it is the best netting on the market.
Superior corrosion resistance more ductile exceptional strength in both knot and wire tension curves absorb any pressure from climatic change or livestock pressure 450mm pre-stripped ends, speeds up tying off time one piece uncut vertical wire that provides real strength and rigidity to the fence, almost self-supporting making installation quicker.
95% Zinc plus 5% aluminium, provides a protective barrier over the wire because it corrodes much more slowly than base metal and when it does corrode, it forms a white oxide protective layer on the surface. The zinc in the XTRALIFE coating will protect even after the wire is damaged. The Zinc is more reactive than steel and so the elements that cause corrosion attack the zinc first. The coating makes the wire more ductile, easier to work, resists cracking when tying off and gives a smooth animal friendly abrasive-free that can last up to three times longer than standard zinc coated wire.
