Torus installation


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I hope you can help me understand the requirements for installing Torus fencing. I've not installed high tensile wire before, and am not sure about post spacings and strainer requirements, especially considering the extra tension compared to mild steel.

  • I know fewer posts are required, but what would be the recommended maximum distance between intermediate posts? And between strainers? (Assume a straight run over flat ground - I'll make the necessary adjustments at curves and undulations).
  • What about strainer construction? Are diagonal struts strong enough for the extra tension of the HT wire, or should I go for box strainers? What size of strainer posts is recommended?
  • How about curves? What is the largest angle around a strainer before a strut assembly (as above) is required? (I'm guessing the greater tension is more likely to pull unsupported strainers sideways?)
  • Any other tips on installing HT compared to MS?

Thanks very much for any advice or information you can give.
