PermaNet® Plus 12/48/3 Electric Netting
Electrifiable perimeter fence for chicken yards or to protect gardens from small varmints and deer. For use in all seasons. Recommended for locations where the fence will not be moved often or very far. 48" tall.
Each roll is a complete fence with the posts already built into the conductive mesh. PermaNet has thicker posts with longer ground spikes than other nets. And its posts are spaced every 6'8" to reduce sag. Stronger posts withstand the effects of wind, rain, ice and snow much better than standard netting.
You will need a fence energizer to electrify the net.
New to electric fence? Premier’s Starter Kits may be a good choice. They include netting, extra support posts, a solar fence energizer, ground stake and a digital tester.
Which PermaNet® is right for you?We offer many fences to fit your situation, including complete kits, different lengths, multiple colors and line posts with single or double spikes. Visit this link to compare all PermaNet options.
No extra gates needed. Just turn off the energizer and pull the first post to create an opening. For added convenience, a PoultryNet® Gate can be used to provide easy access without the need to turn the energizer off.
- Contain and control the movement of chickens, ducks and other poultry for a month or more at a time.

We suggest installing PermaNet with two people. Why? Because of its extra weight and longer posts. It can be handled, installed and removed by one person, but having another person on each end of the posts doubles the productivity and makes it easier for both.
Pushing or stepping posts into the soil is still a one-person task. And so is pulling the posts out of the soil. But these tasks take more effort because the spikes are both larger and longer. (After all, it doesn’t work to have a strong, well-supported post without large and long spikes.)
Note: Weeds must be controlled for PermaNet to remain effective. Either move and mow as needed during the growing season, or spray herbicide (see photos above) along the bottom strand of the net. If you can’t do this, PermaNet may not be the right net for you.
See PDFs and videos above for additional installation instructions.
Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. 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 loose.
Even though PermaNet is sturdier than other nets, extra posts may still be needed to keep the lower “hot” strands off of the ground. Weeds must be controlled for the fence to remain effective. Either move and mow as needed during the growing season, or spray herbicide along the bottom strand to kill the vegetation. If you can’t do this, PermaNet may not be the right fence for you.
Warning! Due to risk of fire, do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting or electro-plastic conductors such as rope, twine or tape. Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier’s website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing. Ice and heavy snow can flatten netting and thereby damage it.
Dry or frozen ground may cause post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed. We recommend using drivable or single spike posts in hard soils. Double spike posts provide more stability when the ground is soft.
With PermaNet, the bottom hot wire can slip off of the plastic portion of the end posts 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. Reconnect the energizer 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.

This netting is the best I’ve had. Where I live in Utah, when the soil dries out, it becomes very hard. We also have driving winds. I have had nets with fiberglass spikes, or metal spikes attached with plastic to the base of the rod. I cannot get those into the ground without soaking it first, which makes moving nets with any regularity, extremely time consuming. The double metal spike attached directly to the oversized post on this netting is excellent. Though I cannot drive it all the way into the ground when it’s dry, I can get it in a couple inches, which is enough to hold it up with a few support strands tied to rebar. This has made moving fence possible. A game changer for me.

Wonderful fencing that saves my Jersey Giant hens’ lives for years now.
Thanking you for these quality products!
We have fox, coyote, bobcat, mink, raccoons, opossum, feral cats and hungry neighbors dogs to watch out for 24 hours 7 days a week, nonstop and this fence is the reason my 17 hens have been with me thru 4 seasons now. We purchased a second fencing kit with the wonderful solar energizer for my new flock of hens.
Being able to move the fence by myself and the hens to receive new pasture is important to me.

You can tell how good a company is by how they handle their mistakes and take care of customers. When my roll of netting arrived and I set it up I noticed that these new posts were way better than my other ones (even though I had ordered and paid for the exact same product 100 ft of PermaNet Plus). I figured out I had been sent the PoultryNet Plus temporary fence instead. I took pictures and requested that I be sent what I had paid for. I got a personal phone call from Tad at Premier 1 who made everything right with great customer service. It was really refreshing in this day and age. Premier 1 has my business from now on and I will recommend them to friends.

Ordered the double spike at the recommendation of customer service. We are in a non-stop wind area (federal wind map and location of turbines). If you wonder what type of netting, I highly suggest you call.
The next test will be winter with the wind/ice/wet snow. Hope it stays up, we love it. And the horse has NO interest in the chickens and their feed any more!

I just sent a prayer of thanks up AGAIN for the outstanding job the Premier 1 PermaNet electric poultry fencing does! I sat in my sunroom and watched a fox on the outside scoping out my hens on the inside! Great fencing!
