High tensile fence has quickly become the most popular agricultural fence here in the East. Even though it is one of the more economical fences to install, high tensile fences provide tremendous strength and durability and will give a lifetime of service if installed properly.
It would be a daunting task for an animal to push their way through a high tensile fence by spreading the wires, so it works very effectively as a physiological barrier. But it is possible for animal to get through the high tensile wires if they are determined enough. So we recommend adding two strands of electric wire to provide an extremely secure fence. The electric wire also prevents cattle from constantly pushing against the wires and wearing them down.
Because of the heavy posts driven into the ground to support the wire, high tensile fencing is not intended as a temporary fencing solution.
If you’re looking for a fence that is a physical barrier rather than just a psychological barrier, the woven wire is the best choice. It is truly impossible for large animals to go through a woven wire fence without first breaking it.
