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.
IntelliRope® PE 4.5 can be pre-wound onto:

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"

As always, a superior product from Premier 1. There is no need to price shop it’s the farm stores because I always know I am getting the best and most compatible products here. Instructions and superior customer service make any minor price difference well worth it. I used this wire for a temporary fence to try a track system in our horse pasture. It is more cost effective than the thicker rope we have around the perimeter and does a great job and is easier to roll up and store when not in use. I think it would still be an excellent choice for the perimeter fence if we need to replace it sometime in the future but it is 14 years old and still working great!

Worked as described.

I have used the poly tape and buckle connectors from the local farm store for years. Thought I would try this poly rope with RopeLink connectors.
These are SO much better. I won’t be going back to the others.

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.
