Common Applications

Otter Exclusion

Otter fencing is used to restrict otters from entering specific areas – usually lakes containing valuable fish upon which otters would naturally seek to prey.

We understand that protecting fish from predatory otters is vital to the commercial success of angling lakes; Tornado Wire’s High Tensile otter fencing protects the valuable investment of expensive stock.

As otters are adept at climbing, the top 500mm should be cranked towards the outside. Otters can squeeze through surprisingly small gaps. With a mesh of 100mm x 50mm, Tornado otter fence is a proven barrier.

To help prevent Otters from digging underneath fencing, at least 500mm should be buried into the ground or turned out at ground level. To achieve this, combine the RL23/240/5 C14 with RL6/50/5 C5 as a two piece otter fence. The two nets are connected with netting clips.

The net has pre-stripped ends for ease of joining. It features solid vertical wires, commonly referred to as “stiff-stay”, and the unobtrusive high pressure bonded Torus knot which does not have any sharp edges. The spring like properties of a high tensile wire help the netting stay tight, keeping maintenance to a minimum.

Ground Contact

Zinc and zinc aluminium coated agricultural fence service life can be affected significantly when exposed to extremely acidic or saline environments and this factor should be considered when designing your fence installation. For typical service life to be achieved it is recommended that the product must be installed in an atmosphere with corrosively class C1, C2 or C3 (very low/low/medium) in accordance with ISO 9223 and must not come into contact with substances that will accelerate corrosion, including but not limited to fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides, salt water and soils of pH lower than 5.5. Particularly at sites with peaty and wet ground conditions it is recommended that you have the soil pH tested prior to designing your installation.
