Sheep fencing for Cheshire and surrounding counties
Over our many years of fence installation, Suddenstrike has supplied and installed many types and sizes of fencing for sheep. Most commonly, sheep are contained with a fence using stock netting (also known as stock fencing) – this is generally a 900mm high wire mesh net secured to wooden posts with two strands of barbed wire at the top. However we also install electric fencing systems whether temporary or permanent.
We install all of our fences with our own equipment including the very latest and best in post installation – the award-winning Bryce HD180 tracked post driver – the only machine of its kind in the area. To match our work standards, all of our materials are sourced from the highest quality names in the industry such as X™ Fence®, Tornado, Gripple and Hotline. Our timber is pressure treated for longevity and comes from sustainable sources such as FSC managed woodlands.
Having been in the fencing industry for a great many years, we have developed an excellent reputation for quality and service with our clients.
Types of sheep fencing include:
Stock Netting/Stock Fencing
Our stock netting for sheep is constructed by installing treated timber posts in to the ground and then cladding them with high tensile stock netting, manufactured to BSEN10223-5 standards and galvanised to BSEN10244 with one or two strands of high tensile barbed wire at the top of the fence and one at the bottom when required.
Our stock netting is available in different length rolls – 50, 100, 250 or 500m – the larger rolls mean that there are less joins in the fence line making it stronger. The wire is unrolled and tensioned using our ProFencer wire tightening system, enabling us to install longer lengths efficiently and cost effectively.
We can supply and install various grades of stock netting such as lamb friendly netting from X™Fence® and Tornado Wire or a standard specification netting, meaning we have a fence to suit all your needs even if cost is an issue.
Post and Rail Fencing
Our post and rail fencing can be installed to suit your individual requirements. Typically installed using round posts and flat rails, we can also supply post and rail fencing constructed of half round or square posts, along with half round rails and even incorporate stock netting, rabbit netting and barbed wire if required.
We supply and install a range of electric fencing systems for sheep; whether you require a temporary system such as poly posts and poly wire or electric sheep netting, or a more permanent system where treated timber posts are driven in to the ground and multiple strands of plain high tensile wire are then attached to the posts and electrified. For more information regarding our electric fencing systems available for sheep, please visit our Electric fencing section.
A recent addition to the UK market, Clipex fencing is constructed using 450-grade high tensile steel galvanised posts and come with a 30 year guarantee (Terms and Conditions apply). Clipex systems are designed to be faster to install as well as being stronger and more cost effective than other forms of fencing available. Clipex posts can be used with HT8/80 wire with plain/barbed wire for a standard stock fence as well as electric wires for an electric stock fence. Read more about how Clipex fencing can work for you.
Field Gates and Public Access Gates
We also supply and install a variety of field gates and public access gates constructed using metal or timber. For further details, please see our Gates and pedestrian access section.
Constructed using steel and available in a range of sizes, cattle grids make an excellent alternative where installing a gate may not be a practical solution. For more details on our range of cattle grids please click here.
Water Troughs, Piping and Feeders
We now stock and install a variety of water troughs and cattle feeders including the installation of water pipes. More.
