(Originally posted March 28, 2013): Preformed Line Products just announced the launch of Ranchmate products, a line of unique wire-fence construction and repair products for use with smooth high-tensile and barbed-wire fencing.

These include both insulated and un-insulated post dead-ends and tool-less wire splices. All of them can be applied by hand.

The new Ranchmate products make available to farmers and ranchers the technology utility linesmen have used to build and repair overhead conductor lines for decades. The loosely braided material is simply wound over the splice or end by hand and then the tension of the wire binds it tightly on both sides of the splice.

Ranchmate says its splices and dead ends are made from Class 3 or higher galvanized steel that won't crack or rust and will likely outlast the fence wire they are used to repair. The technology is so simple to use that no tools are required and anyone can easily mend or construct a fence.

Further, Ranchmate says its products are stronger, more durable, safer and measurably superior to anything else on the market.

The AgSystems division of Preformed Line Products is distributor of this technology. PLP was founded in 1947 and is known worldwide as a designer, manufacturer and supplier of cable and fiber optics for communications, solar and energy markets.

Also, since Ranchmate products are officially licensed FFA products, every sale of Ranchmate products supports the National FFA organization.

Ranchmate products are available through farm and hardware supply stores nationwide. To learn more about how to use Ranchmate products and experience "Fencing with a Twist," visit www.Ranchmate.com.
