Fence wires

Nemtek Stranded Wires

The Nemtek Stranded wires are made of high tensile material making them hard to cut thus increasing the level of security. The flexibility offered by the stranded wire construction makes working with this wire easier during installation and results in a neat clean look on the fence without compromising the fence performance.

  • Galvanised A grade stranded wire, 1.2 mm, 1.6 mm, 2.0 mm. The larger diameters offer lower electrical resistance for longer fence lines, are hard to cut, and have a longer life span.
  • Stainless steel grades 304 and 316 stranded wire, 1.2 mm and 1.6 mm diameter. The stainless steel offers a high resistance to corrosion, giving it a longer life. The 316 grade is the wire of choice for highly corrosive coastal areas.

Nemtek Solid Wires

  • A variety of solid Nemtek wires are available to address the different environmental, mechanical strength, and electrical resistance requirements.
  • Galvanised solid wires, light and heavy galvanised, 2.24 mm diameter. This high tensile wire is generally used for freestanding fencing where a high strength mechanical fence is needed and is generally used for game and animal control fencing applications.
  • Stainless steel grade 304 and 316 solid wires, 1.0 mm, 1.2 mm diameter. Solid stainless steel offers a high resistance to corrosion and a longer life span on the fence, with the 316 grade being the wire of choice for highly corrosive coastal areas.
  • Aluminium solid wire, 1.6 mm and 2.0 mm wire. Aluminium wire has a very low electrical resistance allowing long fences to be powered up from only one energizer and its high resistance to corrosion offers a long life span on the fence.
