Galvanised Fencing Line Wire

Galvanised Fencing Line Wire

Galvanised fencing line wire is used to keep galvanised mesh fencing, chainlink fencing and plastic mesh fences taut. Manufactured from either hot-dipped galvanised or galvanised high tensile steel wire in diameters from 0.9mm thick up to 5mm thick. The steel line wire should be tensioned between the metal or wooden fencing posts using a tensioning tool or ratchet and secured using U-nails or clips. Once the wire is under tension, the mesh or chainlink fencing can be clipped using nylon ties or hog-ring clips. Using straining line wire ensures that a fence is not only supported vertically by its fencing posts or stakes, but also horizontally by the tensioned line wire. All fencing installations should have a line wire installed at the top to stop the fencing sagging and keep it taut. We also recommend a line wire be installed at ground level to stop people, or browsing animals from crawling or digging underneath. For meshes above 1.2 metres we would advise an additional galvanised line wire be installed in the middle as well and clipped to the wire mesh or plastic filaments.

We supply a large range of wire coils, all galvanised to prevent the steel from rusting. Line wire can also be used to form fencing without any mesh and also can be used for plant support in gardens and allotments.
