ELECTRIC FENCE WIRING
Lets help you experience the secure life that you deserve
Electric fence is your first line of defense and proves to be an excellent deterrent because of its high voltage and shocking capabilities. It has application from residential to commercial and to industrial Space.
If an electrIc fence is installed correctly, it will be an asset to your security and can alert you when a line is cut or if someone shorts the wires when jumping over.
Electric fencing is installed with aluminium, galvanised or stainless wire. Poles are installed every 3m and a typical 6-line fence will increase the height of your fence by about 0,5m. Warning signs are installed every 3m and on all gates.
Parts Of An Electric Fence
When an electric fence is installed in series, the energiser monitors the return voltage. When a line is cut, there is no return voltage and the fence immediately alarms.
Below are some standard parts that are used when installing an electric fence
1 – Fence energiser
2 – Fence posts
3 – Fence wire
4 – Insulators
5 – Earth Spikes
6 – Stays
7 – Ferules
8 – Fence warning signs
9 – Tensioners
10 – Springs and hooks
We use quality materials to build robust electric fence solutions and install them in a series circuit for best results
DEFENSE SECURITY SYSTEM
A high-voltage shock combined with a physical barrier will deter anyone from attempting to penetrate the perimeter fence.
The detecting ability of our electric fence energizer will sound an alarm when the perimeter of the property being protected has been infiltrated or tampered with.
By keeping the perimeter protected using an electric fence, the attempted break-in of the protected area is delayed, giving additional time for a reaction team to respond.
QUALITY OF WORK
We pride ourselves in using stainless steel wiring (1.0mm to 1.2mm) which offers a high resistance to corrosion, giving it a longer life span, and because it provides optimal performance. We offer a 7 year guarantee on the stainless steel wiring. All brackets and poles are of a high standard to maximize security. The number of wires and the distance between the brackets form an integral part of your security. We use either galvanized stainless steel or powder coated (black or white) square tube steel fence poles and brackets.
ELECTRIC FENCE ENERGIZERS
The heart of the electric fence is the energizer. This device will maintain a high voltage on the electric fence and produce the electrical pulse that is transmitted around a multi-wire perimeter electric fence. The strength of the shock depends upon the power output from the energizer and the total resistance of the circuit.
ELECTRIC FENCE POST
We use galvanised or mild steel posts for electric fence installations that are robust and will last for many years. Standard colours for mild steel posts are black and white. Standard fence posts come in 5,6, 8,10,12 lines.
ELECTRIC FENCE WIRE
We use 3 types of wire namely galvanised, aluminium and stainless steel.
Wire type and dimension is determined by distance and the electric fence energizer. Galvanised and aluminium wire have lower resistance than stainless steel.
ELECTRIC FENCE INSULATORS
Most electric fence posts or poles come with an insulator that’s been designed to work on that post. Some insulators are interchangeable, and others are fixed and will only work on the post it was designed for. Electric fence insulators are designed to insulate against voltages in excess of 10 000V
ELECTRIC FENCE EARTHING
Earthing is an integral part of an electric fence. A bad earth will cause a low shocking voltage which will render the electric fence useless. Correct earthing procedure is to have 3 earth spikes as close to the energiser as possible and 1 every 50m after that.
