Mesh Design

Squared Mesh
Wire is either "knotted" or welded to form squares or rectangles -- vertical or horizontal. This mesh pattern is used mostly with heavier gauge wire.sqmesh

Hexagonal Mesh (commonly called netting)
Always made of a light-weight wire that is woven to form a hexagon. Red Brand uses a reverse weave that allows netting to unroll flat for easy handling.hexmesh

Knot Styles

Many heavy gauge wire fence styles are made by "tying" sections of wire together with "knots." Red Brand uses two types of knots, each with a specific advantage in use.
Red Brand exclusive SQUARE DEAL® Knot
This construction prevents fence from buckling or sagging. It provides extra vertical strength and rigidity while alowing flexibility for ideal installation over hilly terrain. One-piece vertical stay wires are tied to line wires and crimped at the joint to prevent slippage.sqknot

Unique MONARCH® Knot
This knot acts as a hinge that gives under pressure, then springs back into shape. Monarch fence is easy to install because the hinge "gives." The fence always retains its full height for continuing protection and good looks. Vertical wires are individually cut and wrapped for maximum strength and flexibility.monknot

Wire Gauge

Fencing is made from various gauges of wire -- from very heavy to very light. The chart below shows you the size of each gauge (Ga.) wire used in making Red Brand fence. The larger the number, the smaller the wire.gauge

How to "read" Red Brand Fence
Look for the style number, which is a quick description of the important dimensions of the fence it classifies. "Pull-out" is the measure, in inches, of the distance between vertical stay wires.

Acreage Guide

Use this diagram to calculate the number of rods of fence required to enclose fields of different sizes:


1 rod = 16 1/2 ft.
10 rods = 165 ft.
20 rods = 330 ft.

1/4 mile = 1,320 ft. or 80 rods
1/2 mile = 2640 ft. or 160 rods
1 mile = 5280 ft. or 320 rods
Acreage Table

These are the suggested guidelines. Assumes square area to be fenced. Amount of fence needed will increase as area gets narrower and longer.
