Because of its contrasting colors, it's the most visible narrow tape on the market.
That's why it is so effective at stopping deer, horses and "spooked" cattle—and why many prefer it for temporary cattle fences.

- Attach a terminal insulator to end post.
- Tie end of tape to terminal insulator.
- Unroll tape along the fence line. (Using Premier's reels makes this easier.)
- Insert line posts.
- Insert tape in line posts at the right height(s) for your animals (see below).
- Attach insulators (preferably the notched PI 21n to corner and end posts.
- Tie tape to terminal insulator at far end post. By hand, pull it tight enough to eliminate sagging between posts. Tie off by hand, or leave extra tape on the reel.
- Use one of our reels to rewind and store tape.
- Install and connect energizer to a ground rod and the fence. Turn on energizer.
Properly energized fences last longer and require less maintenance—because animals do not crowd, rub or scratch on them. Confirm voltage is at least 3000V at the end of the fence line. Tree limbs that fall upon the fence must be removed immediately.
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:
- 3-strand fence—40", 27", 15"
- 2-strand fence—34", 22"
- 1-strand fence—34"
- For Horses:
- 2-strand fence—48", 24"
- For Gardens:
- 2-strand fence—15", 6"
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.
Listed below are recommended optional components. Your particular situation may require alternative recommendations. Please call and talk to our fence consultants if there are any questions at 800-282-6631.

Great durable hot wire for all weather conditions.

I gave it a lower rating, because I was thinking this would be adequate to keep horses out. Unfortunately even with help from the company, it’s just too thin. I’d have to do numerous rows. I regret not getting a wider tape for my situation.

Great tape. Very sturdy and flexible at the same time.

We love the visibility of the tape as compared to twine. We control 300 head of sheep with a single strand of this tape as we move across our pastures. They are far more apt to go through 5 wire barbed wire fences than the tape. Of course it works for cattle. too.

IntelliTape lasts, hands down, YEARS beyond any feed store tape I have bought—even at the same price.
The Arizona sun and wind takes its toll…I don't use anything but Premier1 products any more. Thank you for keeping my horses safe!
