IntelliRope® PE 4.5
4.5mm (3/16") electrifiable rope for permanent and portable fencing situations.
- Virgin polyethylene (v-PE) filaments resist wear and abrasion
- Excellent built-in elasticity
- 3 tinned copper and 3 stainless steel conductive filaments are 400 times more conductive vs. stainless steel only polywires
IntelliRope® PE 4.5 is identical to IntelliRope® PE 6.0, except it has fewer non-conductive monofilaments making it thinner and lighter.

It is particularly good for humid climates because polyethylene resists mildew better than polyester.

Regular maintenance is required to adjust the tension of conductors and reset any loose line posts. Tree limbs that fall upon the fence must be removed immediately.
For dry soil and snowy conditions, convert the fence to “positive/negative” by connecting every other strand to a galvanized stake driven into the soil.
Spacing of line posts must be adjusted to terrain. Always put a post at top of hills and bottom of valleys. Vary the spacing of rope strands according to type and size of animal(s), fence usage (boundary vs. subdivision) and the number of strands.
Suggested Strand Height (from ground):
- For Sheep:
- 3-strand fence—35", 24", 12"
- 5-strand fence—36", 27", 20", 13", 7"
- For Cattle:
- 1-strand fence—34"
- 2-strand fence—34", 22"
- 3-strand fence—40", 27", 15"
- For Horses:
- 2-strand fence—46", 24"
- 5-strand fence—60", 48", 36", 24", 12"
- For Gardens:
- 2-strand fence—15", 6"

Just finished installing the rope. Looks nice and much more visible than I had used before.

I bought this to replace the 1/2" polytape I had been using from the farm store. I like this much better. Especially when using the wire links for connecting.
I would give 5 stars but I haven’t used it through the winter yet.

This IntelliRope is a bit thicker than what I previously used but that’s great because turns out this is a superior product by far. This is not the only product I will be buying from Premier 1.

This rope is great! It is strong and light, and easy to use. However, it is difficult to tie in a knot, so the RopeLinks are a lifesaver. Good shock, definitely worth the investment!

I recently bought this to reinforce my buck pen. This was so simple to set up along the top of my cattle panels. I power it with a solar energizer and so far have had nothing but success.
