ElectroStop® 10/42/12 Electric Netting
ElectroStop is 7" taller than ElectroNet®. Has one extra conductive twine. A prefabricated fence that has 10 horizontal twines (9 conductive); is 42" tall installed, and has large white plastic vertical struts every 12".
White PVC posts are built into the mesh every 12.5'. The result, when energized properly, is a nearly impenetrable mesh to sheep, goats, coyotes and dogs.
The black and white colors provide 24/7 visibility to both humans and animals against light and dark backgrounds. It's low electrical resistance (only 38 Ω/1000 ft) is an important benefit for longer fences and/or fences with high weed contact.
Pos/Neg fences—are for dry, sandy or rocky conditions. Ideal for situations when there is too little moisture in the soil to properly ground the fence.
- 10 horizontals (9 electrified)
- Horizontals are white and black
- Horizontal spacings from bottom to top are: 4", 4", 4", 4", 4", 4", 6", 6", 6"
- Verticals are a white plastic strut spaced 12" apart
- Posts are .5" PVC with a metal spike that goes into the ground.
- Posts can be single spike (SS) with 1 spike that goes into the ground or double spike (DS) with 2 spikes that go into the ground.
- Posts spikes are 6" long and .26" in diameter
- Posts are spaced every 12.5'
- 42" tall
- Comes with 2 nylon strings that can be used to tie posts back to support posts or to tie 2 end posts together.
- Comes in 164' or 82' lengths- Pos/Neg is available in 164' lengths with SS posts only.
- 38 Ohms of resistance per 1000'
- Positive/Negative (Pos/Neg) comes with 2 clips on each end. 1 is to be hooked to the energizer like normal. The 2nd should be hooked to a ground rod. This is for places where the soil is very dry and the animals do not ground well.
- Quick Ground ElectroStop is a special use netting developed by Premier. Metal filaments in the bottom horizontal strand (the one touching the ground) serve as the ground rod to complete the electrical circuit. Designed for those that move netting very frequently. There is a risk with this design. If vegetation touches both the bottom strand and the first positive strand (only 3" away) an electrical short is likely. A larger energizer is often needed.
- #203000 - $.85 per ft (164' standard roll with single spike posts).
- #203100 - $1.23 per ft (82' standard roll with single spike posts).
- #207025 - $.95 per ft (164' standard roll with double spike posts).
- #207040 - $1.34 per ft (82' standard roll with double spike posts).
- #203200 - $1.06 per ft (164' Quick Ground roll with single spike posts).
- #204000 - $1.04 per ft (164' Positive/Negative roll with single spike posts).
Tip: A PowerLink (see accessories tab above) is recommended to attach the grounded portion of the Positive/Negative net to the ground rod.
Remember...netting must always be properly electrified!
It is best to have animals trained to electric fencing before you turn them out in the net only. 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.
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.
Listed below are recommended optional components. Your particular situation may require alternative recommendations. Please call and talk to our fence consultants if there are any questions at 800-282-6631.

Flex-net = great product. We have used 3 other brands. We'll use none of those ever again!

I use this for hair sheep and like it a lot. It's well-made and versatile. I have tried other manufacturers' nets that aren't as strong/heavy, and sag like crazy. The semi-rigid vertical stays are a big help to minimize sag, but I still need to use additional step-in posts. I agree with another reviewer that the pegs could use powdercoating to prolong their life, and more rigid posts would help too. On a related note, it would help if the technical info for the nets would include the amount of amperage they draw, given the number of electrified strands, etc. This info would help with choosing a fence charger. Thanks!

I've had my net up for three days now and so far nothing has gotten through it. Predators are a real problem in my area, and I was worried about them digging under it but so far there have been no problems. I read some reviews that said it was hard to keep the middle from sagging, but I found that if you put the posts in the ground at a slight angle out instead of straight in it keeps it tighter. All in all a pretty good product. Very easy to move.

After three full (April-November) seasons with the ElectroStop 10/42/12 (42" x 164') single, I decided to expand the area for my two busy Nubian does.
Full set-up takes less than an hour. It's easy to handle--I shift it around at least weekly to a fresh area--and tolerates rough, weedy ground. Because I arrange it in a zigzag (quicker for shifting--try it!), I add step-in garden stakes with string to the poles at the sharp angles, but in a simpler configuration, I don't even need them.
I wanted it to be very visible (busy garden-center) to man and beast alike, and it is. The animals (even Little Houdini) respect it quite well. Many coyotes here; I've seen no sign of them in/around the fence.
For storage, Premier1 advises *not* rolling--quite rightly; I tried it; big tangle--but I do roll it loosely around a very long florist's box (sorry, P1)!

We purchased 4 of the 82' version for our goats and calves which we run together. We move them twice daily. By using two sections in a pair we are able to always have two paddocks--one in use and one "on deck." The product is well made and easy to handle and setup. However, for the 82' length there are only 8 posts making 7 sections. With an odd number of sections it is difficult to use only one fence since you cannot make a rectangle out of it. Furthermore, with 11.5' between posts the intermediate spacers can bow and sag. I recommend Premiere offer a version with 11 posts evenly spaced along the 82'. This would make 10 sections approximately 8' each and allow you to setup a 2 X 3 section (16' X 24') paddock with only one fence. It would be slightly heavier but less saggy.
