Act NOW and help to keep your fields and paddocks in good shape ahead of autumn and winter

We are all aware of the mess in our paddocks, fields and gateways following long periods of rain in the autumn and winter months.

Muddy gateways are avoidable with good quality rubber matting in place. Fieldguard has a superb range of grass and field mats which are perfect for this task.

Did you know? Fieldguard Rubber Mats are grown on trees

At Fieldguard, we pride ourselves on the high quality of the electric fencing products we sell, and the same goes for our rubber mats.  Our rubber mats don't exactly grow on trees, but the latex used for their production is tapped from the trees grown on rubber plantations in Kerala, India. We don't just import stock from a supplier's catalogue. Most of the products we offer at Fieldguard have been developed by horse owners for horse owners and are made...

Fieldguard fencing – helping to keep unwanted visitors out of your garden

Ten days ago, we had a call from a customer who's garden lawn was being damaged by badgers. Being local, we were able to assess the problem first hand and helped put together a fencing package to deal with the problem.  This included three strands of 40mm brown tape, R8 insulators, and R36V tensioners. Power would be supplied using a Speedrite S5 energiser. The system also included three R11 gate handles which allowed the fence to be left open during the day for access. A week after installation, visits from badgers have completely stopped and our customer is delighted with...

Charlie Sellings

Those of you who met our wonderful and ever cheerful Warehouseman, Charlie Sellings, will be sad to hear that he died suddenly last week.  Charlie came to us to work part-time on making up fence orders, but over the years he so loved the job, the responsibility and his van that he voluntarily extended his hours until he was working for us full time. He kept the warehouse smart and well stocked without being asked. Ever cheerful, 100% reliable and...

Time to renew and repair your electric fencing in time for summer

A well-installed and maintained Fieldguard electric fencing system will last for very many years, but it does need a little tender loving care from time to time – something we tend to forget this while it is working and looking smart. The old saw ‘a stitch in time saves nine’ holds as true even with our tough product. FIELDGUARD ELECTRIC TAPE NO 1 FOR PADDOCKS AND FIELDS SINCE 1984 Fieldguard electric tape is the original electric fencing tape, developed by Fieldguard with our French...

Fieldguard electric fencing for horses

Fieldguard electric fencing tape is the original tape, developed by Fieldguard with our French partners – both being horse breeders – in 1984. By its nature, electric fence tape has high electrical resistance and requires large power units. To mitigate this Fieldguard 40mm electric tape is made with 10 x 0.4mm stainless steel filaments, which is perfect when used with our Speedrite electric fence energisers. Animals touch the edge, so the filaments of the 40mm tape (excluding white) are bunched along each leading edge, and...
