The Advantages of Post and Wire Fences for Farms

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Feb 24, 2024 8:15:00 AM

Enhanced Security

Post and wire fences provide enhanced security for farms by acting as a physical barrier to keep intruders out. The sturdy construction and height of these fences make it difficult for trespassers to gain access to the farm and its contents. Additionally, the visibility offered by the wire mesh allows farm owners to easily monitor the surroundings and detect any potential threats. There’s also the security of confining your livestock and crops within a secure area where they are less likely to be harmed.

For added security, post and wire fences can be equipped with additional security features such as barbed wire or electric wires. These additions provide an extra layer of protection against intruders and deter them from attempting to enter the farm premises.

Summer Construction Challenges Solved!

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Aug 26, 2023 7:30:00 AM

Summer is one of the most productive and challenging times of year for most construction contractors. Problems like extreme weather, an overly busy schedule, and poor air quality can all cause delays in production and poor overall efficiency. Sometimes these problems can even cause injuries, poor morale, and loss of work.

These problems have solutions. Using the right tools and fasteners, such as BECK's patented diamond coating for fasteners, for example, can help make your season more productive and profitable. The diamond coating ensures reduced friction, fewer wood fibers destroyed, and higher withdrawal values, allowing you to work faster when using nails and staples made with this innovative technology.

Additionally, training workers to stay safe in challenging conditions and following summer-specific protocols are essential steps to overcome some of summer's biggest challenges. See below for more details on these challenges and what you can do about them.

Solutions to Pallet Problems for Pallet Manufacturers

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on May 20, 2023 7:30:00 AM

Pallets are one of the most important and perhaps under-appreciated fixtures in warehouses, loading docks, and stockrooms around the country. Without pallets, the global manufacturing, transportation, and logistics system that delivers goods around the world would function very differently. Pallets truly are a critical component of the system that allows us to ship products around the globe.

It's important when shipping and transporting goods across city, state, or international borders that the pallets used are of sturdy construction. Pallets aren't made to be beautiful, but they must be durable, strong, and well-constructed to function. The Mezger® Stapling Head Systems are the perfect tool for constructing strong pallets. These pneumatic nailing and stapling systems allow for the easy, fast construction of wooden structures. If you're a pallet manufacturer, here's what to know about making strong pallets with durable materials.
