Stock fence products are available in different heights and tensile options. Their main use is to keep animals out of certain areas such as roads, highways, residential, etc... Because animals climb, dig or fly, woven stock fences are used to limit the impact of these animals on our daily life. These fences are not aggressive, protect both inhabitants and wildlife. The risk of animals breaching a fence is related to both the quality of the fence and the capabilities of the particular species to pass it over.

Uk government wrote a technical Forest Fencing guide indicating : "The general area to be fenced is a management decision governed by the objectives of the fence but the ratio of length to area enclosed will have an important influence on the costs per hectare; for example, fencing a linear shelterbelt is more expensive per hectare than a compact woodland. The position of a fence can influence the capital cost, acceptability for any grant, the cost of fence maintenance and the ease of removal of intruding animals by a wildlife ranger. Unless the intention is to fence along a legal boundary, it may be possible to make worthwhile savings by straightening out the line to eliminate one or more corner posts even at the expense of excluding some planted land and perhaps using individual tree guards there instead. Once the objectives are established and the general specification has been chosen, the route of the fenceline needs to be surveyed on a map and on the ground".

You should also always consider where your fence will be installed and analyse the following factors:
- The animal environment to be kept in or out. For instance, wild animals versus cattle, for which the pressure on your fence will be different,
- Whether the fence is an internal or boundary fence, whereas boundary fences may need sturdier than internal fences,
- The topography of your area, the possibility to access with mechanicals machines,

Tensile steel quality, as well as the knot, are key to your choice. Mild tensile stock fence offers a tensile strength between 600 to 800 N/mm and is the most often used rolls in our forests. It's easy to install thanks to the flexibility of the wire. They are generally manufactured with hinge joint fixing. A high-tensile wire fence is very effective at containing livestock, where different knots and steel quality are possible. Our Ursus Cyclone stockfence, is the stronger roll you can find in our assortment. 

We suggest you take time to plan your fence, to really evaluate your environment, and why not to consult our specialists to get the best proposal for your need.
