PermaNet® 12/48/3 Electric Netting
While Supplies Last. All sales are final, no returns.
After customers use normal net, they eventually say, "a great product but I'd prefer to move it less often." We're users of netting like you are, and we agree. For this reason, we designed a net intended to stay in place longer--but still can be moved when desired.
While the mesh portion is the same as standard 48" PoultryNet, PermaNet 12/48/3 has much stronger and larger posts with longer and larger steel ground spikes. That's why this net resists sagging and withstands the effects of wind, rain, ice and snow better than normal net.
Is your net sagging? Check out our PermaNet Plus—it has posts every 6.8 ft (vs. 8.33 ft for standard PermaNet). More posts means less sag and a more versatile fence. See accessories tab below.
- 12 horizontals (11 electrified)
- Horizontals are white and black
- Horizontal spacings from bottom to top are: 2", 2", 2", 2", 4", 4", 4", 6", 6", 8", 8"
- Verticals are white plastic strings placed every 3"
- Posts are .75" PVC with a metal spike that goes into the ground.
- Posts are available with a single spike (SS) that goes into the ground or double spike (DS) that goes into the ground.
- Post spikes are 8" long and .31" in diameter on the single spike posts.
- Posts are spaced every 8.33'
- 48" tall
- 35 Ohms of resistance/ 1000 feet
Every net comes with 1 Warning Sign and 1 Repair Kit.
HotGate® Handle Kit (See under "Accessories Tab" above) can be used with these nets to make a gate opening.
Weeds must be controlled for PermaNet to remain effective. Either move and mow as needed during the growing season, or spray herbicide along the bottom strand of the net.
If you can’t do this, PermaNet may not be the right net for you.
This is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. It is best to have animals trained to electric fencing before you turn them out in the net only. The first time you put the animals in the net, you should be available to watch them for a while. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loosed.
Even though this net is more stable than other nets, extra posts may still be needed to keep the hot strands off of the ground.
Dry conditions and wintertime usages—may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
On PermaNets for poultry, the bottom hot wire can slip off of the plastic portion of the end posts down onto the metal spikes. This will cause a dead short and no energy will be on the fence. Unhook the energizer and slide the hot wire back onto the post. Hook energizer back to the net and test.
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.

I've been raising backyard chickens for only a bit over a year. I lost a very high percentage of them to the neighbor's dog until I put up the semi-permanent electric fence netting. I've lost no chickens to predators since putting up the fence. I highly recommend it and intend to buy more of it in the future.

Needed fencing for my garden and didn't want to do anything permanent since I rent...I had used electronet back in the 80's with sheep so opted for the double spike permanet for the garden. Super easy to install, even for a 5'6" 63 year old! Maybe should have gone for the permanet plus with closer posts, but my garden is safe after zapping a few dogs, bunnies and groundhogs! Looking forward to the veggies without chomp marks!

After a couple of daytime fox attacks, I bought 300'of the double spiked Perma net last year. It has proved to be one of the best things I have done for my chickens. It has worked out so well, that I bought another 300'of it this year to expand the range a bit. It has been the answer to the fox problem for me.

I own poultry net plus and I bought this because of the height/length/price and the claim that it is stronger and can withstand harsher weather. It was equally as easy to install as the shorter poultry net. The post thickness is nicer, the length spike is much appreciated. It doesn't sag, it looks great and seems sturdy.

Easy to move and for the most part keeps the birds in as long as I clip wings. Difficult to electrify. My husband and I have shocked ourselves several times attempting to get a current through but we just use it without electrification or connect it to our horse pastures.
