An efficent energiser is the foundation of the basic power supply to your electric fence. The output power is specified in joules. Four factors play a crucial role when deciding which energiser to use. Vegetation load on the fence, Fence length and number of wires, Type of animal and power supply. You can also contact us where we can advise to best the energiser to suit your needs.
Polytape, Polyrope & Polywire
Patura polywire, tape & rope are made up with Stainless steel strands for the highest breaking strength. Also containing tinned copper strands for great conductivity and polythylene threads for longest life.
Permanent fence insulators
The right insulator in the right place
It is important in the use of insulators to use the correct insulator in the correct location. One differentiates between strain and corner insulators at the begining and at the end of the fence, at places where it changes direction, and line insulators for the general fenceline. In practice , the insulator is often used for all areas of application. Almost always, a line insulator, which is designed only to withstand minimal tension, is chosen demands will cause them to fail. The use of just a small number of rugged corner and strain insulators very quickly pays itself by way of longevity in the fence, a lower maintenance load and, above all, in considerably greater security.
Earth stakes – the key accessory
Make sure you earth everything properly! Over 80% Of installed earthing systems are inadequate. The minimum number of earth stakes for each particular energiser is given in the tables for the particular energiser in the Patura catalogue from the Patura website.
