Wire Tensioning

Sagging fence wires = ineffective and/or dangerous wire fences.

Make sure your wire fence lines stay tight, using Strainrite wire strainers. Strainrite wire strainers are manufactured in New Zealand to the highest standards and using the highest quality materials, please find out more about our different types of wire strainer here.

The tension of a good wire fence can vary considerably, but if the wire isn’t at least taut you risk animals escaping, becoming entangled or worse.

Whatever your wire fencing requirement and choice of fencing materials, whether this is a simple stranded electric wire or a heavy duty permanent and high tensile sheep fence with wire tensioned to 100s of kg, Strainrite will have a wire strainer (or tensioner) that is suitable for your fence.
