TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE

Welcome to the Site: fencing.bekaert.com, which is owned and operated by BEKAERT CORPORATION through its agricultural division.
BEKAERT CORP transforms steel wire and applies coating know-how to develop agricultural fencing and containment products. We improve both the bulk and surface properties of steel wire products to meet the needs of our customers. To do so, we group the wires into cords, ropes and strands, weave or knit them into fabric, or process them into an end product. Depending on the application, we apply coatings which reduce friction, improve corrosion, resistance, or enhance adhesion with other materials. By using the Site, you are licensed to use it only for the purpose of engaging with BEKAERT CORP under this Agreement.
