LHT15-158-8 – Poultry Fence


Product Description
LHT15/158/8 is a lightweight, high tensile poultry net with closely spaced vertical stay wires, ideal for short to medium term projects. Tornado LHT Poultry Fence is manufactured with high tensile wire which strains tighter than mild steel and so requires fewer intermediate posts, making it quicker to erect. It does not stretch with weathering so does not need to be retightened annually.

Installation Guidelines

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 ‘crimp’ in the net should be reduced by approx: 50%. Avoid driving staples tight against the wire as this will damage the galvanised coating. A single electrified wire can be used as an additional deterrent for fox exclusion, and the bottom of the net can be turned out.
