Provides easy access in/out of netting enclosures without the need to turn off the fence energizer. Same electrified mesh as 48" tall PoultryNet®.
Quickly installs at the ends of existing garden or poultry fences. Gate post locks into place via a handle and docking station. Stainless steel clips at each end of the gate provide electrical connections to the fence. Features drivable posts which are useful in dry, hard or rocky soils.
Available mid-June 2017.
Drivable posts can be inserted into hard soils using a mallet or dead blow hammer.
Can be used with shorter (height) nets.

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.
Netting must be moved when tall grass covers the lower “hot” strands. The alternative? Apply a strip of herbicide to kill vegetation.
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 netting. We do not recommend the use of electric netting during harsh winter conditions—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.
