Electric Fence Tape, rope and wire

Electric Fencing Wire Cheshire

Electric fence equipment – tape, rope and wire

Tape, rope or wire, what do you choose? All conduct a charge in the same way, the difference being the medium that the conductors are carried. The key aspect with electric fencing is visibility. For many animals an electric fence acts as a psychological barrier and they have to be able to see it to avoid it. This is also a consideration when deciding on colour – a product with a low visual impact from a human point is also much harder for an animal to see. Products which offer a higher contrast with its surrounding environment are more likely to be effective.

Tapes and ropes are widely used within the equine environment and both have pros and cons. Tape offers the greater range of visibility as it is available up to 40mm in width and, as such, is often used as alternative to traditional fencing. As its profile is wide and flat it is susceptible to catching the wind which overtime can break down the conductors. This can also occur when the fence is regularly moved, dismantled and re-erected. Many tapes that we supply have thick polyurethane webbing, with extra thick edging to extend the life of the fence. Rope is a very good alternative to tape and what is lost on visibility is made up in durability.

Poly-tapes, ropes and wires conduct power through thin metal conductors running through the length. The more metal in the fence line the more efficient it will be. Steel conductors have a good balance of conductivity and tensile strength, whilst copper (usually nickel plated) also conducts extremely well but has a lower tensile strength. Products with a combination of the two aim to take advantage of the strength of steel while using the copper to reduce the overall resistance of the product. Resistance is measured in ohms. A lower ohm value indicates the product offers less resistance to the energy flowing through it and thus will take the power further.
