Agriculture - Get back on track
The original wire joining and tensioning solution, Gripple joiners are market-leading and globally renowned in the agriculture sector. In use on a multitude of high profile projects around the world, farmers, fencing contractors and wine growers choose Gripple to simplify cable installation and maintenance. As the world seeks more efficient and cost effective ways to get back on track in 2020, there’s never been a better time to switch to the time and labor saving benefits of the Gripple system.
Make significant time and cost savings
The Gripple product range is innovatively designed with simplicity in mind. The unique ‘grip and pull’ technology, a key feature of our cable joiners and tensioners, removes the need to knot and tie wires, vastly reducing labor and installation times, when compared to traditional systems. With time at a premium as we seek to accelerate projects in the second half of 2020, the time saving simplicity of Gripple solutions will be a welcome replacement for the labor intensive installations of old.
Strong, long-lasting products
Total cost of ownership is a key consideration for farmers and wine growers. The selection of tools available ensure installation and maintenance are hassle free, and the Gripple tensioner can be re-tensioned year after year, so there’s no need for heavy duty straining equipment and constant investment in new solutions and labour intensive alternatives. By eradicating the need to knot and tie wires, the integral strength of your wire is never compromised and you’ve got a solution which will last for years.
"We've used Gripple on past projects and have always been delighted with the installation times we've been able to achieve."

Better use of labor
Availability of labor will be a key challenge in the second half of 2020. The simple design and intuitive installation delivered by Gripple solutions removes the pressure of finding high skilled labor with knowledge of tying and knotting wire, and reduces the installer training requirement.
Enhanced health and safety
Working with hard cable can be tough on hands, and the use of heavy duty straining equipment presents the risk of injuries. There’s never been a more vital time to protect our workers and reduce the strain on our healthcare system. Gripple solutions deliver lightweight simplicity and remove the strain associated with traditional knotting and tying of wire, ensuring safer, less labor intensive installations.
"We found a lot of benefits in the installation process itself, and the way we’ve installed the posts here have been a lot easier to do than the traditional methods that we’ve used in the past."
