IntelliRope® PE 6.0
Excellent low-tension conductor for both permanent and semi-permanent fences. Virgin polyethylene monofilaments are interwoven with 3 tinned copper and 3 stainless steel conductive filaments.
6mm (1/4") diameter is heavier and stronger than IntelliRope® PE 4.5, but also more expensive.
NEW! IntelliRope® BLUE PE 6.0 similar to our standard IntelliRope®, with blue filaments to enhance visibility to animals (who can see shades of blue).
Which conductor is right for you?We offer a wide-range of electrifiable ropes, twines and tapes to fit your situation. Visit this link to compare all Premier conductors.
Well suited for humid climates because mildew does not thrive on polyethylene (PE). But PE filaments are “slick”—it’s difficult to tie a knot in PE rope. Use a RopeLink or Rope Connector for connections.

Plug-in (AC) energizers are best if the fence is close to a 110V power outlet. Solar energizers may be a good option for fences far away from an outlet. A wide-impedance energizer such as the Kube 4000 is well-suited for most “4-season” fences—a fence that must work when grass stays brown or snow covers the ground.
Spacing of line posts (not more than 35 ft) 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 & Goats:
- 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 Deer Exclusion:
- 2-strand fence—48", 30"
- 5-strand fence—50", 40", 30", 20", 10"
- 3D anti-deer fence—inside: 48", 18"; outside: 34"

We get compliments on how great our fencing looks all the time. We put up our pastures 5 years ago using the same rope and it’s held up beautifully! No complaints whatsoever. We purchased the 660ft roll to use to expand my riding arena. I recommend this rope fence to anyone putting up horse fencing. It is functional, durable, economical and looks great!

I have used the IntelliRope and IntelliBraid for my horse fencing for 10 years now. It is easy to use, easy to move and I have never had an animal get loose or injured. The Premier 1 service is quick and they are helpful with any questions.

Great polywire. We used it for the perimeter electric wire and is really nice that it’s so visible. Also keeps more power going through the wire than the smaller gauge wires.

I purchased this to run a two wire hot fence to separate my hogs in paddocks in the woods. This is a great product and you can install it really fast. I used the FiberTuff fence posts with the insulated clips. They have a picture of what I am talking about when you look at the FiberTuff posts. It is nice because you can slide the wire height for hills, water, or vegetation changes.
