Our expert staff are fencing fanatics! We’re passionate about fencing, and our first priority is making sure your fencing project is successful and that you’re satisfied with the complete Bekaert fencing experience.
To help you tap into the knowledge of our team of fencing professionals, we’ve developed an information library of frequently asked questions to help your fence project succeed.
Woven wire is available in a variety of heights and configurations. All Bekaert fence products feature a fence design number such as 1047-6 or 2096-12. Understanding the components of the design number helps you better understand the product specifications of the fence design.
Let’s take 1047-6, 12.5 ga, 330’, Class 3 for example:
One knot does not function the same as another. That’s why we offer a variety of knots. Whether you need to keep livestock in, keep other predators out or are looking for something based on aesthetics, you’ll get just the right fit for your project.

Working with our superior wire, the Gripple Medium joiner product installed on each line wire serves not only as a joiner but as a tensioner as well. Bekaert pre-installs Gripple Medium joiners on select Solidlock® Fixed Knot and Gaucho® Field Fence products. Check with your local dealer or contact us for verification on specific products.
Wire fencing products are manufactured using either high tensile wire or low carbon wire. Low carbon wire is made from steel rod with a carbon content of approximately 0.10%. This type of wire is easy to work with and fairly forgiving. However, it is prone to elongation (stretching and sagging), which produces a lower breaking strength than high tensile wire.
High tensile wire is made with higher carbon content at approximately 0.28%. The increased carbon content significantly increases the wire's strength and reduces elongation minimizing the need for future tensioning and repair. This allows you to use a smaller diameter, high tensile wire replacing the thicker low carbon wires.
High tensile wire can be installed using fewer posts than low carbon fences. Once properly installed, high tensile wire remains tight for years and requires very little maintenance. Low carbon wire begins to stretch and sag over time requiring regular maintenance. Watch a Fence Pro alumni demonstrate the breaking strengths between both types of wire: Breaking Wire: High Tensile wire vs low carbon wire!
Fence coatings are extremely important. They’re all that stands between your fence and the world, and unless you want a rusty fence with a short life span, they are a necessity.
