Plastic Droppers are Vital Fencing Supplies. Find Out Why

Whether you are installing a fence for security reasons or to merely contain game and livestock, it is important to ensure that you make use of the right grade and quality of fencing supplies. Determining what fencing materials to buy will probably be an arduous affair if you do not know what you are looking for. In addition to fencing wire cables and posts, plastic droppers form an important part of your fencing supplies. The droppers are used to maintain the integrity of the fence strands, which in turn ensure that the fence is always strongly integral. 


The droppers keep the wire strands of the fence the correct distance apart from each other, as well as to help maintain the correct tension of the strands. This ensures that, upon impact or pressure, the wire strands do not separate, opening a gap, or snap. It is a great feature if you consider that game and livestock often rub against the fences or push their heads through to the other side if there is a spot of good grazing. The presence of the droppers at various intervals across the fence line also makes the fence strands more visible to help avoid injury to animals running and not noticing the fence.

The plastic droppers that we sell are unlike the metal and wooden droppers of yesteryear. They are made from a tough recycled plastic and are fire resistant. Their durability also ensures that they do not weaken, crack, or break when exposed to the elements for long periods of time. In the African climate, this is an important feature. Another advantage is that you will not have to worry about them being stolen, unlike metal droppers that were, in the past, a prime target of theft as they could be sold for scrap metal.
