Hog Wire is a Field Fence for agricultural applications and silt fence reinforcement. In the Mid-Atlantic, Hog Wire is typically used for silt fence reinforcement on North Carolina projects. The hinge joint construction provides a high level of flexibility and retention of the original fence shape. The tension curve in the horizontal wire helps maintain fence uniformity despite extreme temperature changes.

Our Hog Wire Fence is a commercial-grade wire fence that meets ASTM-A-116. The top and bottom wires are 14 gauge for additional strength while the middle filler wires are 16 gauge. The vertical wires are spaced 12-inches apart.

Additional variations are sometimes available. Inquire with sales if you have a project that needs to meet a specified standard.
