Die Draadwerf Game Fencing Products

The height of the fence on a game farm depends on the type of animals kept. Game can be grouped into various categories based on their potential to move over, under, or through fences. It should, however, be noted that most animals will only resort to crossing fences when they are under stress or duress.

The following fence-crossing groups can be distinguished:

Animals that jump over fences:

Kudu, Impala, Mountain Reedbuck, Grey Reedbuck, Eland, and Waterbuck.

Animals that crawl underneath or through fences:

Ungulates like Warthog; Bush pig; Duiker; Steenbok; Klipspringer; Gemsbok; Springbok; Sable Antelope; Red Hartebeest; and Tsessebe, and predators such as Jackals; Caracal; Cheetah; Leopard; and Lion.

Animals that break fences:

Buffalo, Rhino, Giraffe, Waterbuck, Eland, Blue Wildebeest, and Sable Antelope Bulls.

Animals that usually do not jump over fences:

Springbok, Blesbok, Steenbok, Duiker, and Oribi.

We provide different options for breeding camps.

Die Draadwerf offers two main Game Fence Solutions

30 Strands Steel Wire

This fence consists of 30 strands smooth steel wire. The horizontal wires are spaced close together to prevent Jackals from getting through the fence.

21 Strands Steel Wire with Netting Wire

This conventional game fence consists of 21 strands of steel wire. Netting wires are added to the bottom part of the fence, to make it ‘Jackal proof’.

Different heights of netting wire are available:

  • 900 millimetres
  • 1200 millimetres
  • 1500 millimetres
  • 1800 millimetres

The netting wire is folded over the bottom part of the fence, until it touches the ground.

Die Draadwerf recommends adequate electrification, with tripwires (preventing Warthogs from borrowing under the fence) to make it 100% predator free.

Y-standards are spaced at 10 metre intervals and Droppers can be spaced from 500 millimetres to 1.43 metres.
