LHT13/190/15 is a lightweight, high tensile fence, commonly used
as an economical solution in areas of low pressure from deer or for a
short to medium term project. Tornado LHT Fence is manufactured
with high tensile wire which strains tighter than mild steel and so
requires fewer intermediate posts, making it quicker to erect. It does
not stretch with weathering so does not need to be retightened
Compliance with British and EuropeanStandards
BSEN 10218 – Steel Wire and Wire Products part 2 – General Wire
Dimensions and Tolerances.

Coatings on Steel Wire part 2 – Zinc or Zinc Alloy Coatings (all
Tornado products galvanised to class A).
Suitable for Short to medium term exclusion of Deer
A straining post is required at every major
change in direction or any termination and
should be supported by a strut or box
assembly. Netting should be tied off on the
straining posts by hand or with suitable joiners.
When tensioning the fence the ‘crimp’ in the
net should be reduced by approx: 50%. Avoid
driving staples tight against the wire as this will
damage the galvanised coating. Additional line
wire can be added to the top of the fence if

HEIGHT : 1.9mtr (6ft 4”) – LINE WIRES: 13 – VERTICAL SPACING: 15cm (6”) Light High Tensile wires is not as strong as the High Tensile version but is more cost effective and often used with Rabbit wire or when Deer are less common and a full strength fence is needed. This helps to withstand pressure from livestock and gives a high resistance to sagging.
