Electric Fencing


Let’s answer some of the FAQ’s

What type of fence wire should be used when installing Freestanding fences?

Braided wire is not recommended at all. The most durable is 2.24mm Double Galvanized Steel wire. Solid Aluminum wire can be used but it could be damaged easier.

What is a Public Area?

An area which is open and accessible to the general public, including, but not limited to roads, pavements, walkways, public squares, parks, beaches and car parks.

What is the minimum height of live wires in public areas?

1, 5 meters

What must be done if a freestanding fence is installed next to a road?

A barrier fence must be installed to prevent public touching the fence.

What can be done if you already have an electric fence installed and bottom wires lower than 1,5 meters are electrified?

Change the bottom fence wires to earth wires and use offset brackets to install live wires on the inside of the property.

Then the wires lower than 1,5 meters acts as a barrier fence.

What is entrapment?

Where a person can be trapped between live wires and a structure, and he might be unable to escape.

That is why barrier fences must be either close to the fence or 1 meter away.
