IntelliRope® PE 4.5
4.5mm (3/16") electrifiable rope for semi-permanent and portable fencing situations.
- Virgin polyethylene (v-PE) filaments resist wear and abrasion
- Excellent built-in elasticity
- 3 tinned copper and 3 stainless steel conductive filaments are 400 times more conductive vs. stainless steel only polywires
IntelliRope® PE 4.5 is identical to IntelliRope® PE 6.0, except it has fewer non-conductive monofilaments making it thinner and lighter.

It is particularly good for humid climates because polyethylene resists mildew better than polyester.

Regular maintenance is required to adjust the tension of conductors and reset any loose line posts. Tree limbs that fall upon the fence must be removed immediately.
For dry soil and snowy conditions, convert the fence to “positive/negative” by connecting every other strand to a galvanized stake driven into the soil.
Spacing of line posts must be adjusted to terrain. Always put a post at top of hills and bottom of valleys. Vary the spacing of rope strands according to type and size of animal(s), fence usage (boundary vs. subdivision) and the number of strands.
Suggested Strand Height (from ground):
- For Sheep:
- 3-strand fence—35", 24", 12"
- 5-strand fence—36", 27", 20", 13", 7"
- For Cattle:

I use this fence for rotational grazing cattle, dairy & meat goats and feeder hogs. The rope is visible, durable and conducts well. It is easy to re-spool. (I use garden hose carts which are lightweight and easy to roll around.) I find it doesn’t stretch much once I get it pulled tight. I’ve started using the springs and connectors from this company and in combination — works really well. We have switched over all of our line over the last 3 years and I am quite happy. Worth the price since it holds up well, even where I have it up year round.

Intellirope is very easy to use. We can put up a fence in about a third of the time it used to take us. Once the cows/calves see the rope they respect the perimeter.
Premier is an excellent supplier our orders usually arrives within one day of ordering. We get all of our fencing supplies from Premier.

We use this for our temporary rotation pens and find it easy to handle and durable. A single strand holds our small herd of a dozen including our bull. A three strand pen held our bull all spring with the cows a mere 300 feet away. Conducts well and reliably and is visible and strong.

A pleasure to work with. Wishing it had a couple more hot wires in it but seems to work fairly well. Have bought it 3 times in past 2 years. Love it for installing ease and pleasing to look at.
