We developed this fencing system to control kangaroos and other feral animals that were invading our crops and improved pastures ... especially in dry times. It's also extremely effective for controlling livestock such as bulls, crossbred sheep, goats and horses if installed as per recommendations.
- 2. At what spacing should I position the insulated suspension posts?21.03.16
On our own property our preference is to space the insulated suspension posts at 3.3 metres, with steel posts every ten metres. Most of our customers choose to space the insulated suspension posts at 3.3 or 4 metres and up to 5 metres. We recommend 2 insulated suspension posts between steel posts.

The insulated suspension posts are made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) with 4% carbon black UV stabiliser added. It is the same material from which black poly pipe is made. The first insulated suspension posts made have been in place for over 12 years and still provide control of stock and pests.

The insulated suspension posts are held in place by 2 clips made from industrial spring wire. Each clip grips the wire so tightly that you have a job to move the insulated suspension post with a sledge hammer.
- 6. How cost effective is your fence?23.03.16
One of the largest costs in constructing a fence is labour, even if you do it yourself. By utilising our "thread all at once" system, you can dramatically reduce this cost, and erect more fence per day. See our Youtube Video for a quick demonstration.
- 7. Do I need to hire the special trailer to construct this type of fence?23.03.16
No, the insulated suspension posts and clips can be used to build a fence in the traditional method or using the Westonfence™ "slab" method. You may also simply attach two lengths of RHS to a box trailer or truck and feed the insulated suspension posts out by hand.
Another alternative is the Westonfence™ Roller Applicator. Please contact us for more information about our newest, patent pending, fence laying technology for your farm.
