Alternative Fencing Materials for Agriculture this Winter

Date: 16th December 2021 Agriculture & Equestrian

If you are looking for a more durable and cost effective alternative fencing material which can stand up to the upcoming harsh weather conditions this winter, then you may be interested in our Stokbord Sheet.

As we move into the winter months, it is important for those in the agriculture industry to take measures which can reduce the strain caused by the expected challenging weather conditions. Our Stokbord sheet can achieve this, and is now widely used by those in the agricultural and equestrian sector as an alternative fencing material for use in animal housing such as sheep pens, cattle races and trailer flooring.

This LDPE fencing material can be used in place of traditional solutions such as timber and plywood. It is a rot proof fencing material which is capable of standing up to harsh chemicals and regular pressure washing; both of which can cause damage to traditional alternatives.

The Stokbord Sheet is made from 100% recycled plastic and has proven to be a longer lasting alternative, being both chew resistant and non-toxic for animals. It is incredibly easy to fabricate and is available in custom colours and sizes, depending upon your requirements. This is however subject to minimum order quantities being met.

You will be pleased to hear that it can easily be sawn, drilled and CNC routed using traditional woodworking tools. While circular saws and band saws have been shown to work well during this process, lower operational speeds are recommended in order to avoid friction heating occurring.

While it is not recommended, we have also had cases of the Stokbord sheet being successfully glued using specialist adhesive systems. In either case, one thing we always recommend is that the Stokbord sheet is stored at a temperature similar to that in which it will be used for up to 24 hours prior to fixing. This is due to this LDPE fencing alternative being subject to the levels of thermal expansion and contraction which are inherent with all LDPE plastic materials.

This innovative alternative fencing material has already been proven in industry to have lower whole life costs on account of its increased durability. It doesn’t even need to be painted or treated, saving you both time and money.

So if you are looking for an alternative fencing material this winter, look no further than Centriforce and the Stokbord sheet.

We will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.
