Premier's ElectroFence is effective at keeping in sheep, goats, guard dogs and cattle while keeping out deer, coyotes and bear. It has 11 highly visible white and black horizontals that are spaced from bottom to top at 4", 4", 4", 4", 4', 4", 6", 6", 6", 6". Heavy white plastic vertical struts placed every 12" helps reduce fence sagging. Posts are .75" PVC with an 8" single metal spike that goes into the ground. Posts are woven into the fence and spaced every 12.5'. Fence is 48" tall. Fence uses a tinned copper conductor in conjunction with stainless steel conductor strands making it 10 times more conductive than fences with only stainless steel conductors. ElectroFence has 38 ohms of electrical resistance every 1,000' of fence versus 380 ohms on fences with only stainless steel conductors. Acceptable levels of electric conductivity on the fence can be difficult when low soil moisture conditions are present. If dry soil conditions occur frequently, a Pos/Neg (P/N) version of netting fence is strongly advised. FENCE MUST BE PROPERLY ENERGIZED TO BE EFFECTIVE. Energizer is not included. Recommend approximately .25 joule of energizer per roll of fence. Use only low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizers. Warning! Do NOT use continuous current energizers with electric netting. (Fi-Shock brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric nettng.) For optimum results, we recommend using a Premier Solar or AC/DC energizer that fits your specific needs. Premier's energizers are found on Amazon. We recommend using non-conductive support posts at the ends and corners, such as Premier's 48" FiberTuff posts (Item 208055) found on Amazon. Multiple rolls of netting may be connected together.
