Electric fencing doesn’t just provide safety for your family, it is also a more appealing option compared to barbed wire and other methods of fencing.
In Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl, the use of electric fence wire makes the process of fencing much more affordable. This is due to, as compared to barbed wire fencing, fewer wires and support posts are required in an electric fence. This greatly reduces the cost of the whole project.
Electric fence wire carries the current or electricity in an electric fence. A source of electricity (battery or mains electric supply) sends power to an energizer or fence charger, which in turn delivers pulsing signals of electricity through the electric fence wire. When any conducting object or an animal touches the fence, it completes the electric circuit by connecting to ground. As a result, a short electric shock passes through the person in question. Many South African homeowners and businesses rely on electric fences to keep criminals out.
