Why Use Electric Fencing?
Electric fence systems are used to control a wide variety of animals. A typical electric fence is a psychological barrier that keeps domestic animals in and nuisance animals out, even over long distances.
High Tensile electric fence systems are very strong, cost-effective physical and psychological barriers for the control of animals.
Electric Fence Systems are:
Expandable Gate Handles
Electric fence systems, provide a safe alternative to traditional stock and barbed wire fences. A pulsed electrical current is sent along the fence wire, at about one pulse per second, from an electric fence energiser.
These short electrical pulses produce short, sharp but safe shocks. These translate to a psychological barrier that trains the animal to avoid the electric fence. The shock is sufficient for the animal to remember and avoid it in future.
Easy to Install
Electric fence systems install quickly with minimal tools, saving on time and labour. The planning and installation can be done by one person and installation typically takes less time than installing traditional fencing.
Electric fencing can also be added to an existing fence to improve its effectiveness.
The cost savings of an electric fence are significant when compared to other fencing options such as wood, rail, stock wire or barbed wire. Less wire and fewer posts are needed, labour time for installation is also significantly reduced.
An electric fence system can easily be designed to work in most environments or geographical conditions. An electric fence can be placed fairly easily in all types of soil, whether rocky, sandy or clay etc.
When compared to other fencing options, with the work involved in digging the post holes and carrying the large spools of wire for those systems, electric fence installation can be done with relative ease.
