5cm Horse net from Tornado
Tornado’s Torus horse fencing features a smooth, unobtrusive knot in the wire fence that reduces the chance of injury or the fence catching on rugs. The continuous vertical wires – with small spacings of 5cm – give a dense, very strong net able to withstand pressure and impact from large horses. It also prevents horses, including foals, getting their feet stuck in the wire, or pulling shoes off on the lower strands.
Torus horse fence is made from high tensile steel, which pulls tight and stays tight requiring little to no maintenance. The wire net offers additional security – not only can it contain your horses and any animals that may graze with them, it also prevents dogs and other animals from entering the paddock.
Tornado’s R12/120/5 is widely used across Newmarket, the home of racing in England at several racing yards and studs.
Iain Jermey of I J Agricultural Fencing Services Ltd in Berkshire has been using solely Tornado net for several years. He said, “Tornado pulls up so much tighter and more easily than other brands, which is particularly important when putting up horse netting. With other brands I have found that I struggle to get even tension on a run of fencing because there are 13 line wires as opposed to just 8 on the stock net. The quality of Tornado cannot be beaten. In my view it is safer and more aesthetic than post and rail and it is certainly quicker to install. It also allows other animals such as sheep to be grazed with the horses improving paddock management.”
It can be combined with other products such as an electric top wire or a high tensile polymer rail ‘Centaur’ to prevent downward pressure and keep horses from leaning on the fence posts. Centaur is perfect for perimeters, race tracks, arenas, walkways, corals and other dividing fences. It incorporates a patented insulated ‘belt loop’ bracket with a steel core which the rail slips through to disperse the effects of any sudden impact. Tornado is the only registered agent for Centaur in the UK.
