Electric Fencing Check List
There are sometimes situations that call for something a bit more intricate than traditional fencing, which is which a bit of a shocking twist can make all the difference. Below is a check list of all the items you will need to build an electric fence.
It’s important to remember these are only guidelines. Whether you are using tapes, ropes or wires the same basic principle remains- the conductor should be tight enough not to sag between the intermediate posts.
To achieve this with a permanent electric fence, the conductor – wire, tape or rope – should be strained from your end posts and your corner posts if applicable, using the appropriate tensioning device. End and corner posts also need the correct insulators, which will differ from those used on the intermediates. With a temporary electric fence the necessary tension is usually achieved by using a reel system.
If you follow these simple steps on how to install your fence, it can be done correctly and safely.
