XNET is the newest addition to Hamptons long list of favourites which include, hinge joint fencing, barbed wire, chain link fencing, line wires and staples and hexagonal wire netting. Manufactured on the only machine of its kind in Europe, XNET takes wire fencing to a whole new level in terms of versatility and strength. Customers really can specify their own configurations said Mark Johnson, Managing Director of Hampton Steel Ltd.

Spacings of the stay wires can be anything from 2 inches to 48 inches while the new machine gives the ability to space the line wires at 1 inch increments between 2 inches and 10 inches. This versatility really is revolutionary; apertures can be set to help guard against injuries to smaller animals including foals and lambs or entrapment of heads.

Featuring an animal and people friendly X shaped knotted joint, XNETs wires are locked tight to provide a superior fence with superior strength.

XNET can also be produced with hinged upper or lower sections, to exclude unwanted animals such as burrowing badgers and scaling otters.
