Going for Electric Fences or Barbed Wire to save money?

Because electric fences are lightweight and simple to erect, they are surprisingly cost effective. Barbed wire fences have to be physically strong so fence posts must be securely dug into the ground and the wire must be securely fixed to each post. This takes a lot of time and drives costs up.

Frequently Asked Questions

My fence isn’t working, what’s wrong?

90% of the time when a fence isn’t working it’s down to the grounding. Go back and check the position and condition of all your earth stakes. If it’s still not working, give the manufacturer a call and see if they can work out what’s going on.

How do I choose an energiser?

What energiser you require depends on a plethora of variables, including the purpose of the fence, the fence length and even the weather. If you are struggling to get your head around all the volts and joules, simply give us a call and we’ll have a chat about what’s right for your particular project.

Are electric fences dangerous to pets?

Electric fences output a sharp shock ever couple of seconds. This will get your pets attention but it shouldn’t cause any real damage. However, it’s best to check with the manufacturer just to be sure.

Can I electrify an existing wood or chain link fence?

Yes, you can easily add an electrified wire to an existing timber or chain link fence. Simply mount the electrified wire on insulators along the fence to keep it insulated from existing metal components.
