Electric Fence & Smooth Wire
Diverse Enough for Countless Uses Around Any Property
The modern-day use of wire for enclosures became popular with the invention of barbed wire in the 1800s. Since then, wire has been used to create many different styles of agricultural fence. Today, popular applications include hinged field fence and barbed wire for cattle and other large animals, woven horse fence, welded garden fence, and specialty knotted fence types for deer, sheep & goats, poultry and more. Although each of these examples utilizes strands of wire to construct a certain mesh or fence style, single wires can be effective in a variety of applications as well. In fact, the use of single strand wire for agricultural purposes is as diverse as the number of products available.
Selecting Electric / Smooth Wire
Electric and smooth wire present additional options for fence enclosures. But, the uses don’t stop there. Because the chemical properties can vary a great deal, a wire can be thin and flexible (traditional, low carbon) or very strong and rigid (high tensile). Both types of wire offer unique features and benefits, as you’ll see in the product descriptions below. When selecting the ideal wire, consider the following: tensile strength, gauge, galvanization or annealing, and the amount needed. These guidelines should help you determine the right wire for your application.
Using the international guidelines set forth by ASTM, our products are galvanized to meet or exceed the standards defined for zinc coating.
This ensures that your wire is protected from the elements and will resist
rust and corrosion.

Electric Fence & Smooth Wire
Electric Fence Wire
Used alone or as an extra line of defense, electric wire adds security along fence lines. It's an excellent solution for temporary operations, as it is easy to install and remove. Electric wire is also effective along the top of field fence to gently remind the herd to stay away.
High Tensile Smooth Wire
With a higher amount of carbon content in the wire, high tensile can handle much more tension without breaking. The wire requires less posts for installation and is suitable for livestock enclosures and pastures. Because of it's rigidity, this wire is more difficult to bend.
Galvanized Smooth Wire
Multi-use smooth wire is great for many uses around the farm, home or shop. With six different gauges to choose from, this pliable material can be used for everything from containing cattle, to building brace and corner posts, to hanging tools in your shed.
