Hear from some of our customers and learn how the Styx Solutions droppers/battens and offsets/outriggers have solved their fencing problems. 

Horse cribbing- it can be a real problem


Janine Tasker / Kim Carter, NZ Dairy Goat Farming

"We can't recommend these highly enough if you have an old wire fence that needs goat-proofing! The company was excellent to deal with and the product arrived speedily!

We had a 7 strand fence which the goats had stretched and allowed them to push through. We had tightened the wires but couldn't keep it tight enough to be sure the goats would remain on the right side. 

We purchased the 7 strand Styx batten and also the outriggers and easily applied these to the fence. Securing the outrigger had no special equipment other than elbow grease!"


Angela Nicholson-Southland

​"Thanks for the excellent service with the battens. We will recommend them to others. There are some on a main road in rural Southland.​ They are really good to work with for me - light to carry and put into the wires.We will be ordering more when we replace the other old fences.The fence is much stronger with these than the older wooden battens that were there originally".


Sarah Hunt, Waipu, Northland

​"I wasn’t sure about the ‘look’ of a plastic batten, however now they’re in place, you wouldn’t know unless you were looking and I actually think the black looks quite smart... I liked how they have provided extra stability.

I’m sure you’ll agree that the before and after photos speak for themselves!"
