Styx Easy Battens
Lightweight, durable and easy to install
Styx Solutions provide the farming community with durable fencing solutions for the 21st century. The Styx Easy Batten system is ideal for new fences and a quick and easy way to replace old and damaged battens.
The battens are a cost-effective alternative to traditional wooden fencing products. They remove the need for labour intensive, back-breaking work.
Simply insert down through the wires and with a simple push and click your battens are installed within a few seconds. No staples or tools required to install.
Designed for 2.50mm diameter wire only. Not suitable for barbed or No-8 wire.
Lightweight, strong, and made of a high-quality UV resistant plastic material that will not rot, splinter or leach like treated timber products. They are fully recyclable at end of life.
Because the batten is effectively a giant insulator, any wire - or all wires - can be hot. This may remove the need for additional insulators and labour.
We were frustrated with having to use expensive barbed wire to stop wooden battens moving on the fence... the Styx Easy Batten has solved this problem, with a patented wire location slot and clip, the battens cannot be moved easily along the fence. Designed to flex and bend, they will absorb animal impact.
The Styx Easy Battens have a 2-year limited warranty, and are supplied in 3 options for pre-set wire configurations:
5-7 wire, 6-8 wire and 3-9 wire.

Electric Fence Polywire, Tape & Braids
UV stabilised- tough & durable
Polywire and tape have proven to be an ideal product for use as permanent or temporary electric fencing. For many years farmers and lifestyle block owners have used poly wire for strip grazing.
Styx Solutions prides itself on supplying quality products, ensuring that our range of polywire and tapes can withstand the forever changing weather conditions in New Zealand, we have chosen to supply locally manufactured products.
We have a solution for every type of livestock, tapes and braids specifically designed for larger animals and those with longer fleece.
Our new 40mm wide Equine Naturae range is suppled in a combination of green and brown. Our extremely popular Premium "Kiwi Black" 40mm wide ribbon tape provides the ultimate strength and zapping power. Customers love the product especially within the equine sector where Black posts and rails are used.
For dairy and beef cattle we have our reflective electrified bungy cord, great for gates across laneways or between paddocks and perfect for health and safety in low light conditions.
Our new 6.00mm Mega wire with 10 premium stainless steel wires at 0.2mm thick, gives a real punch and will not unravel like electrified ropes, available in White, Black and Chocolate Brown

Electric Fence Outriggers
Durable and easy to install
Sick of outriggers that require multiple staples, bend out of shape, and suffer insulation breakdown? We were too, and talking with farmers and lifestyle block owners we heard the same story.
The Styx Outriggers can be attached to either side of the Styx Easy Batten without tools. Simply insert into an outrigger mounting receptacle (located in 4 positions on the batten) & twist 90 degrees to lock into place.
They can also be screwed or stapled to wooden posts or railings, or use our insulator base plate to run equiwire simultaneously.
For use with concrete posts, we have used a Styx Batten between the posts and attached the outrigger to the batten, negating the need to attach directly to the concrete post.
A unique design of the outriggers stops 40mm tape from spiraling in the wind. The 300mm & 400mm outriggers have additional wire locations along the length for pest control and additional animal security.
The outrigger, manufactured entirely from a high-quality UV stabilised automotive polymer, will not wear through like traditional metal pigtail outriggers - no more electrical shorts.
They are flexible and can spring back when hit by an animal, unlike metal that bends out of shape.
When used vertically they can increase the height of your fence, and prevent horses cribbing.
Available in 3 sizes: 175mm, 300mm and 400mm.
The outriggers have a 2-year limited warranty.
