VersaNet® Plus 12/60/3 Electric Netting
Folks love our 20" and 30" garden fences, but those in areas with deer pressure wanted something taller. The result is VersaNet® Plus 12/60/3.
Protects gardens, berry patches, apple orchards, sweet corn plots and vineyards where deer pressure is high AND you need to stop common garden varmints.
- 60" tall (5 ft) to stop large and agile animals
- String verticals every 3" near the bottom also stop small animals (rabbits, woodchucks, raccoons, skunks, dogs) and large ground birds (geese, ducks). Near the top, verticals are every 20". This unique spacing reduces both initial cost and sagging between line posts.
- Tight mesh spacings close to the ground will deter many small critters. Deer QuikFence can’t do this.
- Taller than 48" PermaNet and 20" VersaNet Plus. Tall netting will stop deer, elk, cattle and horses.
- Available in white/black or green/black. White/black is more visible to humans and animals, but green blends in with the landscape.

This is a heavy (and sturdy) fence. Recommended for locations where it will not be moved often or very far. For ease of use, install/remove with two people. It’s NOT recommended for deterring chickens, which may jump through the high, open spacings.
Does VersaNet® stop squirrels?A properly energized fence (3000V or more) will keep most unwanted varmints out, but we can’t promise good results with lightweight critters such as squirrels and chipmunks. Squirrels are cunning; they often jump onto the fence without making any ground contact. Without good foot-to-soil contact, they won’t receive a memorable shock. (This is also why birds can perch on power lines without being electrocuted.)
To InstallThe same “unroll and then unfold” process applies to all electrified nets. However, this net is heavier and post spikes are larger than our other nets (therefore more difficult to push into the soil). Because the rolls are long and heavy, installation requires two people. Extra line posts are usually not necessary but, due to the extra height and weight of this net, extra supports such as 11/16" FiberRods are useful at corners, curves and ends. You will need a fence energizer to electrify the net.
We suggest installing with two people. Why? Because of its extra weight and longer posts. It can be handled, installed and removed by one person, but having another person on each end of the posts doubles the productivity and makes it easier for both.
Pushing or stepping posts into the soil is still a one-person task. And so is pulling the posts out of the soil. But these tasks take more effort because the spikes are both larger and longer. (After all, it doesn’t work to have a strong, well-supported post without large and long spikes.)
In order to reduce sagging, make sure all line posts are tensioned and the corner and end posts are strong.

Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. The first time you put the animals in the net, you should be available to watch them for a while. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loose.
Warning! Due to risk of fire, do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting or electro-plastic conductors such as rope, twine or tape. Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier’s website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing. Ice and heavy snow can flatten netting and thereby damage it.
Dry or frozen ground may cause post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed. We recommend using drivable or single spike posts in hard soils. Double spike posts provide more stability when the ground is soft.
