Insulators Tips and Advice
Insulators allow you to fasten electrified wire to posts without losing energy through the post. There are many styles to choose from, because 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.

Insulators are made from materials that do not conduct electricity, most commonly plastic. Using a good-quality insulator is important to the performance and efficiency of your electric fence system.

Rutland Insulators:
