Good installation is the key for successful permanent electric fence. Solid 

posts must be v2016101600092101.jpgery firmly installed at all corners, changes of fence 

line direction, and gateways. 

    Except where high visibility is required, for example horse fencing 

where tape and rope can be used, permanent fences are best constructed using 2.5 mm high tensile wire which is both extremely conductive and durable. 

    Always use good quality insulators on permanent fencing. This is particularly important on long fences with high powered energizers, as poor quality insulators may not withstand the high voltages and joules needed to effectively power a fence of many miles. 

    Always use mains power fence energizers when possible and, if vegetation growth is likely, buy a higher powered model as it will help compensate for fence shorts.
