Installation guide.

No maintenance

HSF tape is made of UV resistant materials and requires no maintenance. When the tape should be broken by storm or impact of a horse, the tape can be connected with 2 screws and tensioned again with the ratchet. When a tape has to be replaced, you can quickly insert a new tape into the existing holders. Also, when it snows, the tape will not bend!

Safety

The strapping breaks before injuries can occur. It will break when a horse gallops into the fence. The fence is easily repaired. We suppose horselovers like to repair the fence instead of the horse…Breaking strength is approx.300kg.

Flexibility

The smoothness and flexibility of the tape prevent injuries such as cuts, splinters or more severe wounds.

Esthetic

HSF looks like a normal wooden fence. Well priced it is also more cost effective by comparison whith post and rail system.
