Why Use Electric Fencing

An electric fence energizer (can also be called a charger or controller) takes electric energy from a power source and delivers it to a fence as pulses. These pulses are commonly referred to as the “shock” felt by any animal which touches an electrified fence. Unlike a conventional fence, an electric fence is a psychological barrier such that animals learn to respect the fence.

Electric fencing offers you a number of benefits over conventional fencing.

Animal Safety A safe and effective option to barbed wire or woven fences, electric fence systems also deter and protect against trespassers and predators.
Lower cost Requires less labor and material than conventional fences (barbed or woven wire, wood rail, vinyl). Savings can also be achieved through reduced maintenance as animals are less likely to damage an electric fence as they usually don’t touch it more than once. It is important to invest in quality components as these will also provide fewer maintenance problems and greater fence life-expectancy, increasing your value for money.
Ease of construction Relatively simple and easy to build, electric fences can be installed quickly and with minimum tools saving you labor time and costs.
Flexibility Wire spacing and fence design can be modified to control a variety of animals. Temporary electric fences also offer the benefit of being able to be moved quickly and easily.
Long life Using quality components and materials, electric fences can last a long time with permanent electric fences lasting up to 40 years.
