AVS stock several different types of electric fence insulators which have been manufactured by Rutland electric fencing who are widely considered one of the industry leaders in quality electric fencing products for animals.
Rutland have been involved in electric fencing since 1973, are based in the UK, with their products used all over the world.
Which insulator you use will be determined by the type of tape, rope or wire you're using. It will also rely on which fence post you are connecting it to; wooden or metal, line or straining electric fence post. Electric fence insulators also vary between use on temporary fences and those on permanent fences. Although heavy duty insulators would be best for permanent fence runs.
If you're looking at adding an electrical element to an existing fence, an offset insulator is the perfect solution. Insulators allow you to fasten electrified wire to posts without losing energy through the post. There are many styles to choose from, because, as already mentioned, the insulator must match both the type of wire and the type of post being used.
In addition, modern fence energisers require insulators with greater arcing protection because of their high-energy output. Electric fence insulators are normally made from plastic or other materials that do not conduct electricity. Using a good-quality insulator is important to the performance and efficiency of your electric fence setup.
Electric fences are commonly used in rural areas to help safely contain livestock, horses and other animals, as well as to keep predators out.
