About this deal

This wire is usually 2.5mm diameter and is used to “bind” the straining wires to the line posts or standards as they are also known. This is done by passing the binding wires through holes in the intermediate posts before twisting the ends together. Tie Wire

NB Stone filling only works really well with square posts. If no stone is available use soil tamped down in layers. Post and rail fencing

Safe, Secure, Sustainable Acoustic Solutions

Nail the rails with galvanized nails driven in at an angle, ensuring the nails are not directly above one another and are set a few centimetres apart. 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. At each change of direction of the fence, sever the roll by untwisting the spiral next to the stretching bar, do this before you insert the stretcher bar. Walk the line of the fence explaining what work will be undertaken. Identify potential hazards and explain how to work safely around them. Bare in mind that if you are using the wire for an art project or precision appliance that all of the different wires have a tolerance of ±0.2mm in their diameter

It’s usually the thinnest wire on the fence, at 1.6mm in diameter, and it’s used every foot or about 30 centimeters along each straining wire to secure the mesh. Like binding wire, tie wire is passed around the mesh and straining wire and then twisted together securely. Twisting and Finishing Wires Either feed the wire through holes in the posts or along the fence side. If feeding along the side, loosely tie the wire at the correct height, or with timber, attach the wire with staples - do not fully trap the wire at this point. Unlike North American fences, where tie wires are often pre-bent (and used to secure the mesh to line posts and top rails), tie wire in warm weather mesh fences is used to tie the mesh to the straining wires. Work out the exact line of the fence and the positions of the straining posts. These are usually determined by the lie of the land (a post at every change of direction or major change of gradient), but straining posts can be up to 110m apart, although 50m is preferable. Lay out materials, describe any potential problems and indicate the positions of the straining posts (decide upon these now if you have not already done so). Demonstrate tool useWhen the posts are firmly set, unroll the coil of straining wire and feed it along/through the posts. The number of line wires required depends on the height of the fence, as a guide:
