PermaNet® 12/68/6 Electric Netting
- 12 horizontal strands
- 68 in. tall
- String verticals every 6 in.
- Posts (built-in) every 8 ft., .75" dia.
- Post spikes (DS): .31" dia., 7" long.
Less costly, less prone to sagging and much easier to install and remove than 19/68/3 but it won't stop small animals.
- Designed to stay in one place for months at a time. Has stronger posts with longer, thicker, spikes to support the net better through wind, rain and snow.
- All PermaNet designs are a barrier to raccoons, coyotes, deer, bears, dogs and livestock.
- A very good conductor. High conductivity enables the pulse energy to be evenly distributed along the fences that have high weed contact.
- 68 in. to increase the "fear factor" in animals that encounter it.
- Installs like all other netting--but the rolls are heavier, so it really needs 2 people to handle each roll. One person can do it—but it's not easy because the wide 68" rolls and posts are hard to handle.
- If the soil is soft and the posts can be pushed (or stepped with the foot) into the soil. If the soil is hard you may need to make a starter hole with a hammer/screwdriver or drill bit.
- A large (in joules of output) energizer is advised to combat the energy leakage of weed contact on the fence.
- Semi-permanent boundary fence around gardens and orchards.
- Subdivision fence.
- To keep in or out livestock, poultry and many species of wildlife.
Weeds must be controlled for PermaNet to remain effective. Either move and mow as needed during the growing season, or spray herbicide (see more photos above) along the bottom strand of the net. If you can’t do this, PermaNet may not be the right net for you.
If used with care, these nets can last 10 seasons. Do not allow rodents to build nests in the fence when stored.
The process is the same as for all electrified netting (unroll, unfold, insert the post by stepping on the double-spiked foot, hand-tension, etc.). Because the rolls are long and heavy, installation requires 2 people. Extra line posts are usually not necessary but, due to the extra height and weight of this net, extra support posts (steel T posts or large fiberglass rods) will be needed at every corner, curve and ends. A steel post driver or hammer is needed to install these types of support posts.
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.
