Permanent Electric Fencing
Good installation is the key for successful permanent fences. Solid posts must be very firmly installed at all corners, changes of fence line direction, and gateways.

Except where high visibility is required, for example horse fencing where tape and rope can be used, permanent fences are best constructed using 2.5 mm high tensile wire which is both extremely conductive and durable.

Always use good quality insulators on permanent fencing. This is particularly important on long fences with high powered energisers, as poor quality insulators may not withstand the high voltages and joules needed to effectively power a fence of many miles.

Always use mains energisers when possible and, if vegetation growth is likely, buy a higher powered model as it will help compensate for fence shorts.
