Whilst electric fencing is relatively straight forward, there are many pitfalls that can occur during installation that will result in a weak or even no electric pulse.
In some cases, electrified current are required for security fencing but the highest demand for electric fencing comes from farm and larger rural property owners to keep animals in or out of particular areas.
Electric fencing is the most efficient fence in terms of cost and installation. Technology is constantly being updated to make each project easier than the last. However, the same problems need to be avoided whether we are charging high-tensile, soft smooth wire, or twine fence.
We have been installing electric fences for the rural sector for many years and we know the most efficient way to create a fence so that it remains ‘hot’ from one end to the other.
An electric fence must complete a circuit for it to work and there are many products that are available to give the best possible outcome for your fence, and we know them all. It is crucial to get it right first time and give serious attention and consideration to things such as:
- Correct grounding
- Quality insulators (cheap ones may work but tend to fail in a very short time)
- Lightning surge protectors
- Correct charger unit for the length of fencing required
There is nothing more frustrating than continually walking your fence lien looking for the source of power leakage. Whilst there are some instances that cannot be avoided, you can reduce the possibility of power leakages to the very bare minimum by installing you electric fence correctly and with the best products you can justify.
