PermaNet® Plus 12/48/3 Electric Netting
- It has strong posts with long, thick, steel ground spikes to support the net through wind and snow.
- Though all PermaNet designs are a barrier to raccoons, coyotes, most deer, bears, dogs and larger livestock, PermaNet designs with verticals every 3" are also effective to stop rabbits, woodchucks, opossums, skunks, chickens, domesticated ducks and geese.
- A very good conductor. High conductivity enables the pulse energy to remain high on fences that have high grass contact.
- Installs like all netting—but it’s easier with 2 people (above right) because the posts are tall/long and the rolls are heavier.
- If the soil is soft, the line posts can be pushed in by hand (or by foot for double-spike posts).
- If the soil is hard, you will need to make a starter hole with a hammer, screwdriver or drill bit.
- A large energizer (in joules of output) is required to combat the energy leakage of weed contact on these fences—particularly if you don’t spray to kill the weeds under the fence.
- Note: Like PoultryNet, PermaNet won’t stop young chicks small enough to crawl through the net openings. For these few weeks in your flock’s life we suggest making a small inner pen with steel chicken wire.
Nets last over 10 years if used and stored properly. Its mortal enemy is errant lawn mowers!

The process itself is similar to other nets--except that the net is heavier and post spikes are larger (therefore more difficult to push into the soil).
Why we suggest installing PermaNet Plus with 2 people
It’s faster to install all electrified nets with 2 people. One can unfold net while the other pushes the posts in. If soil and grass conditions are good, 2 people can install or remove normal nets at a slow walking pace. But it’s possible to install normal nets with one person—just a bit slower and challenging than with two.
PermaNet, however, is notably more difficult to install alone. Why? Because of its extra weight and longer posts. Those factors combine to make PermaNet more cumbersome if you’re alone.
However, with 2 folks, installing PermaNet is easy and fast. And neither needs to be strong, agile or even an adult.
Pushing or stepping posts into the soil is still a one-person task—though it takes more effort because the spikes are larger.
The same (2 is better) is true of removing PermaNet. Pulling the posts out doesn’t need 2 people. But picking up the posts and folding it together is easier with one person handling each end of the posts
To purchase PermaNet Plus…
- Measure the fence line.
- Choose the length and the amount of netting needed. Example: A 140 ft fence line requires one 100 ft net, one 50 ft net.
- Choose either:
- Netting Only—does not contain accessories.
- Net and Energizer Kits.
Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. Warning! Do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting due to risk of fire. (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.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
We offer many fences to fit your situation, including different heights and lengths, multiple colors, drivable posts and positive/negative options for dry soils. Questions? Call our fence consultants at
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.
