All about livestock and fencing

Now that the weather has cooled in regional locations across Australia, we know that many of our rural customers are getting on with livestock and fencing projects such as maintenance, installation and upgrades.

If you’re one of these customers, we’ve put together a handy list of product information and stock updates to help you.

The benefits of gal fencing

Depending on where you are in Australia, your property might face extremes in temperatures, strong winds, pest damage, or all of the above.

Made from galvanised steel, gal fencing has a protective zinc metal coating that increases its corrosion resistance. The process of zinc coating, known as hot-dip galvanising, forms a chemical bond between the zinc top layer and the steel below, so there are no gaps in the coating, leaving a uniform layer of protection.

Because of the metallurgic properties of the galvanised steel used in gal fencing, there is minimal chance of damage during transport and installation. This protection continues over the life of the fence, with the zinc coating offering protection from corrosion.

This layer of protection is so strong that gal fencing can last up to 50 years in rural environments and up to 25 years in more severe urban or coastal environments. Gal fencing is also highly resistant to strong winds and pest damage, so it’s the perfect choice for your fencing needs.

It’s important to consider different coating types, knot types and benefits when purchasing gal fencing, as the correct product will make your fencing tasks that much easier. At Edcon, we stock a range of Southern Wire products with various coating types and knot types to suit the diverse needs of our customers. For more information on gal fencing, check out our article. Our Southern Wire range includes Farm Fence, Hinged Joint and Netting wire in a range of dimensions to suit your project needs.
