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.
ElectroFence Plus 11/48/12
Same as ElectroFence above, but has posts every 6.8 ft (vs. 12.5 ft for standard ElectroFence). More posts means less sag and a more versatile fence.
As an upgrade to PermaNet
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!
To purchase ElectroFence
- Measure the fence line.
- Choose the length and the amount of netting needed. (Example: For a 140 ft fence line, order one 100 ft net and one 50 ft net.
- Choose support posts for corners, curves and ends.
- Select an energizer, ground rod and a fence tester.
Keeps in: sheep, goats, pigs and cattle
Keeps out: bears, coyotes and dogs.
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.
