Poly Deer Fence

Featuring thicker strands that will resist the stretching and sagging that may occur with time in similar fences, The UltraMax elk fence to control elk damage on landscapes has a breaking load of 1400 pounds and a life expectancy of at least 30 years.

Trident Deer Poly Deer Fences have been trusted to protect lawns, gardens and farms for over a decade. These plastic garden fences are attractive to those looking for an alternative fencing solution because they’re made of semi-rounded strands, making them lightweight, durable and nearly invisible. The flexibility of this material makes the fences easy to store, install and repair. Moreover, Trident Poly Deer Fence are reinforced at the bottom with tightly woven mesh to help hold down the fence with ground stakes, keeping browsing deer from digging underneath the garden fence. Whether you want to enclose a small vegetable garden, or a sprawling orchard, you will be able to find the Trident Fence that bests suits your needs.

TENAX has been producing plastic materials for over 50 years and is the largest manufacturer of plastic fencing in the United States. The advantages of TENAX Poly Deer Fence lie within the thick, rounded strands of mesh that are fused together during the manufacturing process. These cylindrical strands are extremely tough, and are more invisible than flat or semi-rounded strands. The strength of the material reduces the likeliness of stretching and sagging, and the rounded shape of the strands allows wind to pass right through, minimizing the risk damage from the weather.

Elk Fencing and Large Animals: Elk and large animal fencing is the best fence type for homeowners experiencing elk damage in gardens. TENAX elk fence for gardens is made from a durable poly material that has a certified breaking load of 1400 pounds and a life expectancy of 30 years.
