Making life easier

Many temporary sheep fencing systems can be troublesome, with reels jamming or breaking and the bugbear of silly hooks on the chains, which continuously catch on everything.

Add to this poly wire breaking down, tangling and cutting through the insulators or standards that don’t hold in the ground and insulators that break down too quickly.

It’s easy to see that break fencing can be a nightmare.

Strainrite Fencing Systems knows the importance of break fencing both on grass and crops to maximise feed utilisation.

Over the years, the company has built up an arsenal of products, with a focus on user-friendly solutions for sheep farmers. This means that heading to the shed to get your break fencing kit won’t feel like a chore.

With a firm belief in NZ Made, the company uses tooling designed in house, followed by manufacturing using high-quality materials and attention to detail - from assembly to the final product.

Making life easier, a Strainrite triple reel set and a reel mounting post is a good place to get started.

The reel features self-lubricating gears to avoid jams or stiff operation and a 3:1 winding ratio for fast operation.

Meanwhile, the mounting post is made of galvanised angle iron, that won’t flex or bend and, importantly, has no annoying hooks that can get caught on the rest of the load during transport.

Loaded on each reel is Strainrite’s Super braid, featuring eight stainless wires that allow a lower resistance and high conductive charge over standard poly wires.

It also has the added benefit of not coiling up when released, therefore dramatically reducing the risk of tangling.

Having good multiwire standards is key to carrying power across the fence line, with a good foot for ground holding. Strainrite’s pressed formed foot – with its unique channel profile – is considered by its customers to be the best in ground holding on the market for any soil type.

Power distribution is taken care of by the new Pigtail Multiwire that has a UV resistant Injection moulded shaft for easy installation even if the fence is ‘hot’. 

For use at the end of runs, Strainrite’s unique Hotpost Multiwire are a must because the all-steel profile becomes ‘live’ – meaning power transfers to all three hooks and removes the need for a degree in knot tying.
