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"

I like the rope, it conducts well and is lightweight. Perfect for rotational grazing. Just be forewarned that 660' does not fit well on the EZ reel as they recommend. While it fits when carefully wound when in the field it is hard to get it tight and straight and falls off the edge of the reel when full. I'd just put less rope on the reel or use a smaller diameter rope.

I used this for my inner fence in my dirt paddocks. The rope is HOT and the horses stay off of it. It's highly visible and strong. Easy to tighten if they do bounce off it.

This product was very easy for us to work with- truly a joy after struggling with thousands of feet of high-tensile wire a few years ago. However, I would switch to 6.0mm rope if I did the project again. (I should have listened to Premier's instructions, they warn against the 4.5 being slightly less visible.) So far the horses have really respected it, and it's holding up beautifully. I can't stress how much nicer this product is to splice/tie, cut, tension, and generally work with than traditional high-tensile wire. We plan on replacing all existing fencing with a Premier rope when finances allow- a very nice product.
Love it! Very easy to install especially since I haven't put up fencing in many years. Looks good too! Thank you for having a good quality fence at a great price!
The thing I like most about this product is the price. It's about half that of any competitor that I have found, and better quality than many of those.
We run miles of electric fencing, and I have strip grazed using various electric tapes and ropes for many years. To be honest, most of these conductors are pretty robust and will take a little abuse. Intellirope is no exception, and it is more tightly spun than some of the competitiors, which makes it very easy to work with. We use some for fences that are moved monthly, and some for a "permanent" fence, and it's doing a great job in both applications.
My only quibble would be on visibility. The riope is predominantly white, and the black strand does not stand out as well as a 50-50 contrasting combination would.
