Animal Safe

No mesh or net that traps animals

Silt, mesh and hardware cloth fencing have been proven to fatally injure wildlife and also allow animals to pass through or climb over them. The solid plastic Animex eco-fence ensures it will not harm animals and prevents animals from entering areas where they could be exposed to harm.

Scientifically Approved

Proven to be more effective than other fences

Multiple studies have demonstrated that the features of Animex fences are far more suitable to be used with wildlife than other options.

The high opacity of the fence eliminates dangerous pacing behaviors and encourages animals to move away from unwanted or dangerous areas much quicker than other general construction materials.

Extremely Durable

Withstands the impact of weather & vegetation management

We ensure all our UV-resistant fencing materials will withstand the impacts of both temporary and permanent projects in a wide variety of climates. Whether it's heavy snow, vegetation clearance, or accidental damage, the integrity of Animex fencing will help to significantly reduce maintenance costs.

It can also stand up to vegetation clearance along the fence when mesh, silt, and hardware cloth fencing can't!

Anti-climb Technology

The only fence animals can't climb

Animex is the only fencing with built-in anti-climb technology to prevent animals from climbing over into unwanted or dangerous areas.

Other fencing materials act like ladders and are unsuitable for use with a wide range of wildlife. This unique feature deters animals from climbing and enables you to use lower fence heights and eradicate impractical large top overhangs.

Simple Installation

Quick project turnarounds

We understand the time constraints of a project so we have created easy-to-follow installation guides and videos to make your life easier.

Our team is also on hand to offer any on-site support or design adjustments you may need.

Water Flow

Protection against storm water & aquatic environments

Animex can allow water to pass through small perforations to prevent washouts during extreme weather events meaning less maintenance is required.

The size of the holes has been designed to prevent any small or juvenile animals from being able to climb or become trapped within the fence as they are known to do in mesh or wire products.
