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
products for more than 30 years. They revolutionised the industry by introducing

Wire products are mainly used for agricultural and industrial purposes, although
gardeners and small holders alike have uses for many of our stock items. Stock
fences are designed to keep livestock in. When we specify a stock fence we take
into account a number of different factor including – What type of animals are
to be contained? Is only one type of animal going to be in the field? What are
the local ground conditions? The answers to these questions determine the size
of the posts, post centres, use of barbed wire (and how many rows), type of
stock netting to be used.

Hinged Joint is a traditional style knot that allows the fence to flex under
HIGH TENSILE STOCK FENCE - Tornado was the first company to manufacture high
tensile stock fencing in Europe. High Tensile (HT) fencing is stronger, more
durable, easier to erect, remains tight & strong for many years thus reducing
long-term maintenance costs. Since it can be strained far tighter than mild
steel (MS) fencing, it requires only half the number of intermediate posts which
saves both time & money.
Today more and more fencing contractors, farmers and land-owners have been
choosing this product in preference to more traditional methods. Tornado
manufactures their range of HT fencing at their factory in Millom, Cumbria.

RABBIT WIRE NET - This versatile product is used as the most cost effective
solution for rabbit proof fencing; other uses include poultry runs, crop guards
and temporary fencing. With a population in excess of 40 million, rabbits can
cause economic losses to farmers; therefore a cost effective and humane solution
of controlling rabbits is required. Rabbit or hexagonal fencing is seen as the
most common form of managing rabbits, whilst being both humane and
environmentally acceptable. We offer a comprehensive range of hexagonal netting
in various heights, mesh sizes and gauges, all heavily galvanised for maximum
CHESTNUT FENCING - A chestnut paling fence is strong, durable and
difficult to climb over. Quick to erect, it makes a versatile temporary or
permanent fence, which can easily be moved and re-used or taken down and stored
- Available in 2 or 3 wire, 0.9m or 1.2m.
STAPLES & NAILS - Staples are the first choice for secure fencing; available in
plain or barbed. Barbed staples have been specifically designed for use in
softwood posts. If a post dries out and splits, the barb will resist being
pulled out. Either choice can be easily carried to the fence line in 5, 10 or
20kg re-sealable plastic buckets. An extensive range of galvanised nails in a
variety of specifications are available in 1kg pre-packed up to 25kg boxes.

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
