Two horse are confined in field fence with narrow spacing to avoid their foot becoming caught in the fence

Narrow spacing keeps horse feet from becoming caught in the fence.

A field fence referring to woven wire fence, is generally made of galvanized mild steel or high tensile steel wires for fencing various type of livestock animals. It has similar appearance to welded wire fence panels, but different in formation - the horizontal and vertical wires of field fence are connected by woven knots at each intersection comparing to continuous welds of welded fence panels.


  • Simple in structure and less weight.
  • Strong enough to keep livestock animals and retain its shape after fierce striking from aggressive livestock.
  • Tight knots avoid two wires sliding along each other.
  • Superb rust and corrosion resistance owing to its heavy zinc coating.
  • Ensure a solid construction over any terrain.
  • Available in various spacing configurations to keep horses, sheep, cattle, hogs and other animals.
  • Easy to install in conjunction with timber stake or other post.
  • Short installation period but long service life.
  • Ease of transportation and ventilation.
  • Easy to maintain using minimal cost.

Four Styles of Knots to Choose From

Square knot of field fence

Square knot also known as horse safe knot, is formed by wrapping a third wire to intersections of continuous vertical and horizontal wires. Square knots provide extra vertical strength and rigidity to withstand harsh collision as well as flexibility in installation over uneven ground.

Hinge joint knot of field fence

Hinge joint knot, as the most common and economical knot, is formed by wrapping vertical steel wires around horizontal wire at each junction. It is applied to both mild steel and high tensile products to withstand high pressure from impacts and spring back into shape taking advantage of high flexibility and strength.

Fixed knot of field fence

Fixed knot refers to a solid individual wire wrapped tightly around the line wire and stay wire to lock wires in place, provide maximum vertical strength of the fence and lengthen post spacing. Field fence with fixed knots are widely used in hunting areas, forest reserves, road and rails, etc.

Ring lock knot of field fence

Ring lock knot is also form by wrapping an individual wire around junctions to increase grid strength, lengthen post spacing as well as reduce the need for droppers and salvage wires. So it is economical in the long run. Meanwhile, field fence with ring lock is versatile and easy to install.
