Poly Deer Fences vs. Steel Deer Fences

Posted by Deerbusters on 29th Apr 2014

At DeerBusters, we carry an array of deer fence made from various materials. Our two most popular include poly (short for polypropylene) and steel. Both are excellent at keeping deer out of your yard and/or garden, but how do they differ? And which one is right for you?

Poly Deer Fences

Our poly deer fences are made from a very strong thermoplastic polymer called polypropylene that’s flexible, but sturdy. This type of fence is designed to be a lightweight netting that is virtually invisible, so you won’t have to worry about obstructing a beautiful view.

Because it’s flexible, a poly deer fence is easy to install on any property and it’s UV stabilized to withstand elements like the sun, rain, snow, frost, and wind; it will last you up to 20 years in the field. Our poly deer fences come in a black 2″ x 2″ mesh size with breaking strengths from 600 lbs./sq. ft. to 850 lbs./sq. ft.

Steel Deer Fences

Our steel deer fences are what you think of when you think of “fence.” They’re made from black 20-gauge galvanized steel that is designed to withstand outdoor elements and provide protection from even the largest deer. The web pattern on each fence is chew-proof and PVC coated to protect from wear and tear. Steel deer fences last longer than poly fences – up to 30 years.

Our steel deer fences are compatible with heavy duty round posts and angle posts. They can also be fashioned into gates to use as access points within your fence or to install in your driveway.

Deer Fence Kits

At DeerBusters, we offer poly deer fence kits in 6-foot, 7.5-foot, and 8-foot heights that come with everything you need to install your own fence in your yard.
