High Tensile Fence Planning
You have already decided what kind of fence you need, now the next step is to determine where you will put it. Be sure of your boundaries, check local laws and regulations pertaining to fencing and locate any potential hazards, both natural and man-made, such as underground utility lines and overhead electric wires. Make sure the fence path is clear of brush and debris...

Frequently Asked Questions

Why so many wires?

Because there are 8 wires in a 4-strand barb wire fence (2ply) and we are relying on strength and tension rather than the spike of the barb.

How strong is it?
Barb wire breaks at 950 lbs. of pull (2 ply 12.5 gauge). Max-Ten 200 High Tensile Wire doesn’t break until 1540 lbs. (200,000 PSI 12.5 gauge).
