What is an electrified fence?

Electrified fencing is a type of barrier that uses electric shocks to deter people and/or other animals from crossing a boundary. The voltage of the shock may have effects ranging from discomfort to death. Most electric fences are used for agricultural fencing and other forms of non-human animal control, although they are also used to protect high-security areas such as military installations or prisons, where potentially-lethal voltages may be used. Virtual electric fences for livestock using GPS technology have also been developed.


Benefits of an electrified fence?

  • Cost-effectiveness: Electric fencing is a relatively inexpensive way to keep animals contained or to protect property.
  • Versatility: Electric fencing can be used for a variety of purposes, including livestock containment, perimeter security, and wildlife management.
  • Animal welfare: Electric fencing is a humane way to keep animals contained, as it does not cause any lasting pain or injury.

The drawbacks to electrified fences

  • Hazardous: Electric fences can be dangerous if they are not properly installed or maintained.
  • Not suitable for all animals: Electric fences may not be suitable for all animals, such as small animals or animals with sensitive skin.
  • May not be effective against determined animals: Some animals, such as bears, may be able to overcome the shock from an electric fence.

What are the main components necessary for a safe installation?

  • Professional electrified fence installer: These technicians have experience in installing these type of perimeter security – so it’s best to get a professional in to do the install. 
  • Energizer: The energizer is the heart of an electric fence. It converts electrical power from a battery or the mains into high-voltage pulses that are sent down the fence wire.
  • Fence wire: The fence wire is the conductor that carries the electric current. It is typically made of galvanized steel or copper.
  • Ground rod: The ground rod is a metal rod that is buried in the ground. It provides a path for the electric current to return to the energizer.
  • Insulators: Insulators are used to hold the fence wire off the ground and prevent it from touching other objects.
  • Warning signs: Warning signs are used to alert people and animals to the presence of an electric fence.
