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.
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.

- For Sheep & Goats:
- 3-strand fence—35", 24", 12"

On the recommendation of a friend, I selected IntelliRope PE 6.0 for my fencing. I am so glad I did. The value and quality are outstanding! The rope was easy to work with and my entire permiter fence was installed with the help of friends. I love the clean look and the horses have no problems seeing the fence. I have a four strand perimeter fence and some 3-strand semi-permanent cross fencing. I highly recommend this product!

Excellent value, easy to install. I have used this, its thinner version, EnduraSoft & the SW tape. My favorite is one line of tape & 2 lines of this below the tape. Have had up for over 6 years with excellent results, very little wear. Easy to tighten! Excellent with SW tape on top for foals, they literally bounced off it with no injuries. We use around a high deer population, love the deer can see it & don't take it down like they do the cheap black/yellow ropes. Highly recommend!

Great product, I use it for cross fencing my paddocks and also for permanent pasture.
Christopher P from Maine
Up quick and easy. No experience with the stuff but I fenced off 1.5 acres in just a couple of hours. Has been up for a month and no escapes from a horse, llama and two goats. Works great and the visibility is perfect. The horse always knows it's there.

Use this rope for cross fencing within hi-tensile woven wire for rotation purposes with boer goats and where there is a common fence between where bucks may be; offset 8" from the hi-tensile woven wire. Bucks respect the offset wire, no more fighting between the hi-tensile. In the paddocks, run 2 strands on fiberglas posts attaching each end to a wood post (stays nice & taut); 1st strand ~12". Goats mostly repect the fence, some non-conformist (smaller goats) occasionally shimmy under it to the next paddock; goats eat underneath it so easy to maintain. Would NOT recommend this for a perimeter fence unless you use a 3rd strand, lower. Is installed basically permanently; no problems. Easy to work with, delivers adequate shock and highly visible.
