Well let’s look at the top 10 things you need to look for after you
decide to set up a barbed wire fence
1.Define the Land type
The first thing is to understand what your kind of Terrain became like flat Land, zig zag land or Hilly Terrain
Use posters made of stone or concrete if your earth was normal flat land. Maybe your land has more curves You can use iron posters Cement concrete post is more likely to break Be sure to use iron posters if your land is in a mountainous or hilly area because there is a lot of animal impact so cement posters are more likely to fall off.
3 Determine the Fence Height
Six feet high is good in normal areas. 8 feet high is mandatory for maximum protection. 10 feet is best for areas that require more protection than normal.
4.Identify quality of the wire
How to identify the quality of fence ? In this matter you look at the thickness of the galvanizing coating of the fence wire. Usually 60 micron to 120 micron coating is available 120 is very costly one it will give more protection against rust forming. you can choose 80 to 100 micron coated wire. I recommend 120 micron for delta areas. 100 is always better.
5 Specification of the barbed wire
Barbed wire fences are available in a variety of brands, the best of which are those made by Tata Barbed wire fences are available in the sizes below
6. Quality of the pillar post .
It is essential that the spacing between the next post and the next post be at least 6 feet and a maximum of 12 feet
7. Select the thickness of the post
In cement /stone post 6 inch post is best if you select iron post minimum 2 inch by 2 inch * 6 mm Maximum 3 inch by 3 inch.
8. Install wires on the pole
First Lay top and bottom horizontally each one guide wire next maintain a minimum one feet 12 inch gap if you need more strength and high security 8 inch by 8 inch is very good one.Use at least 16 gauge wire to tie the barbed wire to the posters. Some tools are available in the market to bind these properly use it properly
9.Fix the support for main post
Lastly it is very important to give support to both the posts. These support posters need every 10 posts.
10. Concrete every post.
Putting concrete or stone binders on posters laying depends on your economy. I do not recommend cement packing.
