Why choose mild steel stock fencing?
Mild steel stock-proof fencing is traditionally used by farmers to contain their livestock. Largely replaced by high tensile wire, it does, nevertheless, still have its place for some applications.

- BSEN 10223 - Steel Wire and Wire Products for Fencing and Netting Part 5 - Steel Wire Woven Hinged Joint and Knotted Mesh Fencing
- BSEN 10244 - Steel Wire and Wire Products Non-Ferrous Metallic Coatings on Steel Wire Part 2 - Zinc or Zinc Alloy Coatings (all Tornado products galvanised to class A)
A straining post is required at every major change in direction or any termination and should be supported by a strut or box assembly. Netting should be tied off on the straining posts by hand or with suitable joiners. When tensioning the fence the ‚Äòcrimp‚Äô in the net should be reduced by approx: 50%. Avoid driving staples tight against the wire as this will damage the galvanised coating. Two strands of barbed wire or a single electrified wire can be added to the top of the fence.¬†¬†
