Very low resistance of only 0.04 Ohms/m with a breaking strain of 1000 kg. This wire is 2.5 mm and supplied in reels of 650 meters.This wire is ideal for long-permanent fences where effective transmission of current and tensioning is important.
It is the most effective permanent perimeter fence and provides the highest level of security for keeping out or containing difficult or aggressive animals, such as bulls or predators. A well-built, high tensile electric fence requires minimal maintenance and will last 20-plus years.
High tensile electrified fence advantages are:-
Long lasting steel wire with 95:5% Zinc:Aluminium alloy hot dip galvanizing to increase conductivity and longevity, superior to conventional brushed galvanizing resulting in a high tensile wire with a life 4 times longer than standard fence wires. Zinc coating of 200g/m2 meeting BS4443 and EN10244
Remember ... Barbed wire should not be used as a conducting wire in an electric fence or used in conjunction with any fence that has part of it electrified. There is a risk of serious injury from prolonged exposure to electric shocks to any animal or person that becomes entangled in the barbed wire, particularly as an electric shock received through a puncture wound will be more severe than by contact with unbroken skin. For permanent high tensile electric fences use well-anchored wood posts to support steel wire under high tension.
