We mainly stock Tornado wire products as in our opinion their wire is the best quality on the market.Tornado has been manufacturing and supplying wire
fencing products for more than 30 years. They revolutionised the industry by introducing high tensile fencing to the UK, and have since continued to develop
high-performance solutions for the agricultural, equestrian and industrial market sectors. Because they started life as fencing contractors, they know the
markets they operate in very well, and have a unique perspective on what each market needs.

BARB WIRE - Barbed wire provides vital protection to the fence by preventing downward pressure from cattle or other heavy animals. Titan™ - a heavy duty High Tensile (HT) for ultimate strength, and Mild Steel (MS) - which is a traditional barbed wire generally used with MS net fences. Both are manufactured to BSEN 10223-1 and galvanized to BSEN 10244-2 Class A, to guarantee the highest quality.

Gripple Plus

The new and improved Gripple Plus offers even more benefits than the original Gripple. It has all the speed and convenience that Gripple has long been associated with, but now offers even better grip, versatility and longevity.

The versatility of the new Gripple Plus is even more evident in fencing as it can be used on field and livestock fencing, plain and barbed wire fencing,

H-post bracing and electric fencing. With improved smooth wire entry features, Gripple Plus is quick and easy to use. Installation is easier and faster giving you more time to tackle other jobs.

The new patented ceramic gripping mechanism provides a better grip on today's hard, high-tensile wire, and locks it in place to give it strength. In addition it performs better where fertilisers and sprays are used.

Repairing damaged fencing is simple too. The Gripple allows you to make quick repairs or replace sections of wire meaning that your fence will stand the test of time.

Gripple Setting Key

  • Use with Gripple Plus Small, Medium & Large
  • Use ONLY before tension is applied
  • Allows the Gripple unit to be moved backwards on the wire if pushed on too far
  • The setting key allows adjustment of the Gripple on the wire (before tension) – ensuring a professional, balanced finish every time.

    Gripple Plus can be used for:
  • Field and livestock netting
  • Barbed wire
  • Plain wire fencing
  • H-post bracing
  • Electric fencing for cattle

The fast way to install and tension fencing. Gripples can be used on field and livestock fencing, barbed wire and plain wire.
