Hands On
It will be two days of classroom and hands-on training. You will learn how to build high-tensile fence, woven wire as well as Hotcote, Kencote and Horserail fences.

other aspects to ensure success. It has been said "Time is Money" - the fact of the matter is the time and money you spend today for training will repay you far into the future.

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 barbwire 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).
