ElectroFence™ & ElectroFence™ Plus 11/48/12 Electric Netting
- 11 horizontal strands (10 energized).
- 48" tall installed.
- Vertical plastic struts every 12 in.
- Line posts (built-in) every 12.5 ft.
- Posts: 0.75" dia.
- Post spikes (SS): .31" dia., 8" long.
- Post spikes (DS): .31" dia., 7" long.
As an upgrade to PermaNet.
ElectroFence™ Plus has posts every 6.8 ft (vs. 12.5 ft for standard ElectroFence). More posts means less sag and a more versatile fence.
Differs from PermaNet
- An extra "live" horizontal strand.
- Lowest live strand is only 4" above the soil (vs. 6" for PermaNet).
- Verticals every 12" (vs. 6").
- Strutted verticals instead of string. Less likely to sag between posts.
Similar to PermaNet
The same in all other respects (post size, post spacing, height and conductivity).
- Sites with installation problems for permanent wire fences (hills, rocks, dips, curves, trees, no machine access).
- Boundary fences for ponds, orchards, forestry plantations, gardens, cropland.
- Boundary fences on leased land. It's easy to remove when the lease ends.
- Interim boundary fence until a permanent wire fence is installed.
- To protect stored hay or grain supplies.
- Sites with soils that shift due to frost or water-table changes and therefore are difficult to maintain high wire tensions.
- If the fence is near trees, check the fence after high winds for fallen branches. (This should be done with all fences.)
- Weeds must be controlled during the growing season. Spray a strip (8 in. wide) of herbicide along the net. The other option is to mow and move it monthly. If you're not willing to do this, don't buy ElectroFence.
- Monitor the voltage levels. It should be 2000 volts if the soil is moist and 3500 volts if the soil is dry.
- Check posts from time to time. For posts that become loose or leaning in the soil (can occur in wet clay soils when wind blows the fence back and forth)--lift, move over 1 in. and reinsert.
The “unroll and then unfold” process is the same for all electrified nets. Extra line posts are not necessary, but support posts (steel T posts or large fiberglass rods work well) will be needed as anchors at ends, at angles of 45º or more and at 90º corners. Use non-conductive string or rope to tie it to steel T posts—steel posts must never touch the netting!
