Overview

Increased competition (grazing pressure) from feral animals is one of the primary reasons for the development of the Westonfence™ system. It was recognised early on that conventional fences do not offer enough of a deterrent (medium to long term) from animals such as kangaroos and pigs. Feral animals have a massive impact on carrying capacity and therefore profitability. Populations of feral animals are rising which puts increased pressure on landowners grazing systems and the fencing infrastructure that protects these systems.

Westonfence™ Exclusion range meets these challenges head-on.

Electric Fencing

It is indisputable that electric fencing is one of the most effective and commonly used forms of security barriers and asset protection across the globe. Electric fencing has an unrivalled “psychological” benefit (fear of electric shock) that other fencing and security solutions simply don’t have.

If you can maintain voltage in your fence you have both a physical and psychological barrier

Design

The challenge with electric fencing in rural applications is to maintain the power in the fence. Early rural electric fencing came with design faults that detracted from the benefits that electric fence offers.

Westonfence has evolved to overcome the early challenges in rural electric fencing. We have “engineered out” the maintenance aspects to provide a robust, reliable, permanent electric fence solution

Westonfence™ comprises of

  • HDPE posts (droppers)- strong and versatile insulators, allowing for the electrification of any (and multiple) wires
  • High tensile clips to secure the posts in the fence
  • High tensile wire, and steel posts

Exclusion Fence Solutions

Our range of exclusion fences have evolved through experience and understanding of animal behaviour.

The key to excluding animals using the Westonfence™ system is to ensure they encounter the power within the fence and learn to respect it.

Fences including 8 line (roo control), D9 XL (deer and roo control), have a height component that deters animals from jumping. They will commonly try and come through which is when they receive a shock and begin to gain respect. It’s important to note that most kangaroo pressure will be down low or under the fence.

Fences including D9 STD (pig, wallaby, dog), D10 (pig, wallaby, dog,) come with a tighter wire spacing down low to deter more persistent wildlife.

More recent Hybrid fences such as the D10 1650mm high have both the height and tighter wire spacings. This fence is a total exclusion solution.

Leaning offsets are another common form of exclusion fencing. Leaning offsets can be retrofitted to existing conventional fences to add to the function of that fence
