IntelliRope® PE 4.5
4.5mm (3/16") electrifiable rope for semi-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"

I have used this 4.5mm rope for several years as a single-strand perimeter for finishing beef. Highly visible and conducts well, the cows respect it when properly energized. I keep it taut with premier p springs, and use rope links for tie offs. A convenient an affordable system.

Good wire. I've found it to last 7 to 10 years. Great for Gates and or temporary paddocks. More visible and stronger than the smaller polywire.

I have used this rope for my donkey and mule for several years. It is easy for them to see easy for me to put up and take down. I have used four different types of rope for them and this is by far my favorite. Would definitely purchase again!
Just installed so can't say how well it will last up here in the north. But the price is good and it is easy to handle. Has good visibility.

I've tried just about every fencing alternative Premier offers, and I definitely prefer rope conductors for the ease of working with them and for visibility.I have found no difference in durability between the rope alternatives. This one tends to be just a little stiff and to kink if you have a lot of it off the reel.
