Max-Ten wire is a key component in the high tensile fencing system. We offer 3 different products under the Max-Ten brand of wire. The Max-Ten 200 , the Max-Ten 200+ and the Max-Ten 170. All three wires are 12½ gauge. All Max-Ten wire is received on large carriers ranging in weight of 900 to 3000 pounds. Which is then coiled to manageable sizes of 4000’ and 2000’ coils. A 4000’ coil weighs approximately 105 # and a 2000’ coil weighs approximately 53#. We also will have short footage rolls available. The coiling process is known as a thread laid coil. A thread laid coil means that when you drop your coil of wire on your Spinning Jenny (TSJHH) secure your Spinning Jenny arms and then cut the bands on the wire it will lie flat. It will not spring, or spiral while unrolling during payout. The process also helps to prevent the wire from knifing in and tangling. Not all companies have a thread laid coil and not all thread laid coiling processes are the same.
Some things to look for when purchasing high tensile wire.
• The gauge of your wire and choose the proper gauge for your use.
• The maximum and minimum PSI rating on the wire.
• Know the coiling process.
• The class of galvanization, you want it to say Class 3 not III or some other notation.
